Reviewed from notes (August 17, 2017). This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was somewhat w there in a speckled messy sort of way. The smell had some toasted caramel malts and a light toffee backed up by a light nuttiness. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this was about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes somewhat crisp yet smooth. Overall, for the most part, this was a decent Amber/Red ale.

Can from Jerry’s 27th St Market. Hazy amber pour with small silky beige head. Aroma is mildly sweet and nutty. Taste more of the same with some hops bitterness at the finish. Light bodied.

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.
