An eminently forgettable beer. On tap at Pizzicato in Beaverton.

A clear dark amber with a dense, beige head with good retention and lacing, the beer looks solid. The nose is a muddled blend of brown sugar and vaguely citrusy hops, mildly chalky, mildly toasty, mild grainy, husky tannins. The palate is similar. Poor feel and structure with a gritty, husky grainy feel which carries flavors of chalky citrus and brown sugar. Moderate carbonation that causes a mild carbonic bite that is not particularly enjoyable. Meh.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on May 17, 2014.

It is an attractive looking chestnut amber pour with a short-lived off-white head and good clarity.

The aroma is not very pungent. I get some sweet and roasted caramel malts but little else.

Light to medium body

Those sweet roasted caramel malts are also in the taste but there is a definite bitter bite on the tail end which cuts like a knife and then fades away. A very typical amber ale.

Appearance has a rich amber color supporting a steady head leaving fair lace. Smell of darker caramel malt and light hop having a light astringency throughout. Taste of the rich darker malts with a mild hop balance. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation.
