Clear red amber with a tan fluffy head with good retention and uneven lacing. Floral hop and caramel malt and something I couldn't quite put my finger on before it went away. Flavors match the aroma in a very nice balance with a clean finish. Fairly robust body with sharp carbonation.
This is a good, very drinkable amber. The carbonation was a little high for my tastes but it was made up for in taste and body.

Poured a nutty amber with a small finger of off-white head. Malt-dominated aroma with caramel and a touch of pine.
Moderate carbonation and an extremely light mouthfeel. Brown sugar and biscuit up front with a mild hop presence on the finish.
Light and easy-drinking, although I didn't find the flavor profile as complex or full as the other Skookum offerings.

Best beer name ever. The name is so good I've given a couple extra half-points, just because. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a solid amber color with just a thin cap of off-white head that had low retention and medium lacing.
The aroma was smooth and malty, with a trace of hops in the background, a fair bit better than typical for the style. On the tongue the solid malts are clearly the dominant feature, but there is a definite hop presence. The beer is very well balanced with a tangy finish.
The body was solid, smooth and easy to drink. A very good example in this regard. Drinkability is very good, the beer is balanced and smooth. Overall, a very good example of the style. I could easily drink several while watching a game. Worth trying when you see it.
