A fantastic beer. The candy cap mushrooms add a great taste to the ale. Pours a nice deep red with a white head. Smells of maple syrup and an earthiness. Taste is sweet, with lots of maple syrup and earthiness, with a spicy finish. Paired with Mac and cheese balls, some citrus is brought out. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bomber with dad, happy 4th of July. Thick light tan head that moves in clumps. Dark orange color, fairly cloudy. Tan flecks of debris. Strong bitter initial hit which turns to decent stale pine hop character. 8.9 bd, dad- 9.2 I kinda like it

Bottle from imperial bottle shop in Portland. Really malt heavy than hop heavy. In my mind a bit more like a east coast malty IPA. Even further drinks more like a red ale. Not to sure what this might be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle bought from Fred Meyer in Wilsonville OR. $4.99 Pours a slightly hazy golden straw coloured beer with a small white head..leaves gorgeous lace. Aroma of apricot stones , honey and anise. Interesting. Taste is much the same as the aroma but with the slightest taste of hops. Palate is fine for the style and finishes semi dry. A nice drink..even for the time of year!

22 oz bomber purchased from Fred Meyer in Wilsonville OR. $4.99 Says 6.5% alc and 65 IBU Amber coloured ale..a bit hazy also with a lovely thick and creamy eggshell white head. Pretty pleasant aroma of flowers and orange peel..yu can tell the malts are strong though. Again the taste is pleasant maybe too balanced..but picking up the floral and citrus hops..but the malts are strong with toffee and treacle aspects..but finishes bitter again in the end. Mouth feel is quite good and i like the long lingering after taste. I kinda go against the grain here and say i liked the beer...even if its more a hoppy Amber than a PNW IPA

Old Town 1 Up Mushroom Ale
At the OBF. Sorry I handed off m program with a little more info. Hit of the festival to me. The brwers-- and this my first beer from then--found the right malts and hops to work with the mushrooms--earthy, edgy, roasted. Deep brown with tan head. aromas of moss, molasses, rye and resin. A visceral mouth feel. Flavors continue that forest funk with a sharper resin edge over brown sugar and a hint of plum, aromatic finish.
