Seeing this beer around for years, I always thought ur was a pepper beer. Always excited to try it, a little surprised to learn its just a plain amber, and less than what I have learned to expect from Smooth as of late. Not boring, just less than their other great offerings. A hoppy amber here for sure. Draft pint at Xfinity Arena, Everett. Tips. Hazy copper, amber pour with a lasting head. Caramel constant aroma. Hoppy more so in flavor than aroma. Creamy. Good for an amber. Alright overall. luttonm (7086) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Creamy off-brown head, copper amber smooth malt body. Smooth orange malt nose. Creamy, wooden Amber malt body. Some citrusy notes cutting the amber some. Nice, but incongruous. Smooth, round body. Some metallic, cardboard bittering. Warm bready flavors. A bit odd, but alright. mcberko (20268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
On tap at Skookum, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is restrained, with some bready malt, not much else. Flavour is more pronounced, with a big dry hoppy punch and a biscuity malt backbone. Drier and hoppier than most ambers, but still not overly convincing. It’s solid for what it is.

Draft - Caramel and some earthy hops. Clear gold with a rich white head. Nice spicy hop notes, balanced bitterness and some caramel. Decent. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color. Nose was pretty bready and dough, with some slight sourdough elements to it. Taste is slightly bitter and also somewhat doughy. It sat heavy and weird on my palate.

Clear amber color/ ivory head. Caramel, light fruit, marshmallow aromas. medium body. Lightly sweet spicy caramel, marshmallow, butterscotch flavors--decent riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Cloudy amber pour, thin head. Aroma is toasty with a little sweetness and some light floral hops. Sweet caramel, toasted nutty malt, and a pleasant floral/citrus hop finish. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2008
On tap at WABL Fathers Day BrewFest 2008. Pours hazy dark copper with a lacy off-white head. Medium body & light carbonation. Lightly sweet taste and aroma with a little chocolate, a little pine, and loads of brown sugar and nuts. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2007
less malt and more hops than other ambers ive had, its more like a solid pale. strong carbonation good head. great finish as the hops are present and bold but not aggressive
