COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold amber is hoppy and unfiltered in the classic Pacific Northwest Style. We combine premium 2-Row, Aromatic, Melanoidin, and Crystal malts to form a pleasant malty base, then add enough Crystal and Mt. Hood hops to create a balanced beer with a citrusy hop finish. This beer is easy to enjoy by itself, and pairs well with most foods.

Pours a dark ruby red with a small white ring. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet candy and earthy hop. Taste is fairly bland, caramel malts, sweetness and a very small hop presence. Would like more hops.

drpimento (3530) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Poured (probably too) cold right out of the fridge with a thick, gold tinged cream head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hop at first then a nice heavy caramel with a little toffee, malt. Flavors like nose, fairly dry, heavy carbonic tang, not a lot going on. Bodys a tad thin while carbonation is a bit overbearing. Finish is like flavor, short, and totally forgettable. Wish I couldve let this warm a bit first.

Bottled. Pours an attractive red brown with substantial head. Starts strong on the hops and finishes heavy on the malts. 1-2 punch.

22oz bomber from LetsPour poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of off-white head. Malty aroma. Caramel and bread with just a little citrus fruit. Taste is light bitter. Chocolate and caramel with citrus. Kinda reminds me of orange flavored chocolate. Medium bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. Id really like to try more by these guys.

22 ounce bottle purchased from LetsPour, poured a dark amber color with aromas of malt, bread, some molasses, and some caramel. Flavors are the same, decent beer overall.

650ml bottle pours amber in color with a creamy lasting white head which leaves some fine lacing behind. Light toasted malty aroma. Taste is malty sweet balanced with a nice hoppy bitterness. Nice carbonation and a medium body presented a pleasing mouthfeel. A pleasant tasting ale with much to be desired.

Bottle:   Deep amber, some sediment floats about, absolutely huge rocky sand colored head, with sticky lacing and very strong carbonation.   The head on this is immense, and it wont go down!   That is by far the clumpiest lacing I have ever seen!   Soft sweet malty nose, a little bready.   Smooth maltiness right up front, sweeter than most.   Low hops in this one, its all about the malt and the sweetness.   Very pale nuttiness too.   This one is rather nice.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   A little tangy on the finish.   I liked this one quite a bit.   Low on the hop, stronger on the malts, with more sweetness than average.   Could use a touch more body tho.
