had from tap and poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice amber color with a good foamy head.

Nice malt based aromas with some hop notes and grains. Not all that deep and singular, but it does do it well.

Good medium body, but lacking some depth. The feel is nice and smooth with notes of malts and some hops.

A pretty solid beer. It wasn't the greatest in the world, but a very drinkable beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Woody's Tacos in Vancouver, Wa. Check them out. Served an orange/amber color with a. 1.5 finger cream head. Carbonation is visible in the beer. As I drink the head leaves fuzzy concentric rings of lacing. Smell is of citrus and pine hops. Taste starts with the wonderful pine and citrus hops, balanced against the malt backing. As the beer crests my tongue I get a nice smooth sweetness. Carbonation is present, but not overly aggressive, just right. This is a rather enjoyable beer, it deserves a little more cred.

First had: on tap at Laurelwood Public House, Portland, OR

Poured a reddish amber color with a small cap of white head; very nice lacing. Not too much in the aroma; sweet malts, a little caramel, mild hops. Taste was equally not-to-impressive, with some caramel sweetness, vaguely fruity, and a decent balance of hop bitterness, but just kind of flat overall. Light-medium body, and fairly drinkable for those with a more non-adventurous palate.

On tap in a glass at Oddfellow's Hall in Seattle on 11/11/11

Caramel colored with dulled, burnt orange highlights. An almost one finger head thins but holds a decent layer. Impressive, solid lace.

Floral hop aromas with a pollen sweetening. Fluffy baked bread and a subtle caramel hint. Clean aroma. Hops are more earthy to taste. Dry pine, too. Hints of citric zest and peel tug at the edges. Malts come across as toasted bread. Suggestions of fruit esters. Dry bitterness rounds out the finish, though not too bitter. Lower side of medium with a juicy feel. Slight grit underneath. Carbonation is a hair on the high side.

Not bad, but I was hoping for a more righteous hop presence.
