100% Cascade amber ale - old school American craft all the way. Murky pond water red-amber, thin white head that falls fast. The floral and citric Cascades stand out on the nose. Malt begins to open up some on the palate - biscuit backbone, husky pale malt, dark fruits, and a light brown sugar sweetness. Balance leans just slightly toward the hoppy side with more grapefruit and a grassy bitterness. An almost unnoticeable butter note lingers at the finish. Not bad, there are some nice flavors going on here but the whole thing needs to be cleaned up a bit, starting with the muddy appearance. Will revisit down the line to see if they have dialed this in.

A: 1 finger tan head that leaves lacing everywhere. Hazed amber body.

S: Citric hops over some caramel & toasty malts.

T: Spicy & citric hops with a decent amount of caramel malt.

M: Medium- body. Fine, lively carbonation. Light hop oil coating at the finish.

O: Hop forward, but still in balance. Falls quickly.

On tap at garage burgers. First thing noticeable about this beer is the murky brown color it has. Unlike any beer ive seen as it looks like dirty water. From a quick smell burnt malts are most present. Taste has the expected burnt malt with some sweetness. A little bit of citrus hop balances the strong malt body. Mouthfeel is smooth and fullbodied with small amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a very good red ale bordering on great. Very drinkable, goes great with a burger, and definitely worth trying. (85/100)

edit: Retried this with some noticeable differences. First, it was much more clear with a reddish slight brown hue. Second, hop profile and bite was much more noticeable this time. Possibly a fresher keg? Also, the burnt malt aspect was much more subdued. Overall, still a really good beer and even with new differences I'm not persuaded to change the score.

Pours a hazy reddish-amber color. Thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Mild note of citrus and floral hops. Just a hint of malt. The malt is more noticeable in the flavor with biscuit notes and a hint of toffee. Good balance with the grapefruit hoppiness. Medium bodied and a touch undercarbonated. Personal preference would have been for a little more on the hop side, but that doesn't take away from the beer.
