Review notes from 2010. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark orange brown amber. Half finger off-white medium head that slowly dissipates leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of sweet malt and herbal hops. Flavor is mild, caramel malt with slight toasted malts, light hops. A faint, pleasant mineral component that I have always felt was reminiscent of volcanic areas, like a cinder cone. Light bodied but decent carbonation. One of my favorite low ABV ales, I'll miss it.

On tap at the Bend brewpub on 11.9.11

A - Arrives a nice dark orangish-amber with a tint of red. Cream color head fades rather quickly to the edges.

S - Very malty and dark fruit. Red apples.

T - Smooth dark malts, a touch of fruit, carmel.

D - A touch bitter, but is very desirable here. Average carbonation and body.

O - A very nice and drinkable brew.

Poured a deep dark amber with a nice one inch off white head and a good amount of lace. Nice retention on the head as well. Smell was deeply hopped, with a nice pine resin aroma and a hint of light grain. My first impression was a bit light in the carbonation, and a slight slickness or oilyness to it. Big hop profile was very nicely balanced against the malted grain back. Overall this was an easily sessionable and highly enjoyable brew.

Reviewed on 1/29/2010. Bottle thanks to scrizzz. Pours a clear mahogany with a small white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light fruits, floral hops. Flavor is similar with plenty of rich caramel malt, toffee, toasted malt, and light bitter hops. Smooth and easy drinking. Overall, a pleasant amber.
