22oz bomber served in a pint glass.

I ordered this Amber ale at JJ Hills in Leavenworth, near the brewery. So why does my red ale taste like bad American adjunct lager? Oh, because it is clearly labeled as lager. Still, bad. Drinkable, but bad. At least it *looks* like a red ale (in the glass, that is).

On tap at the brew house in Levenworth.

A - Served a amber orange with a large tan head that doesn't move.

S - Much like any other lager. Pretty malty and sweet.

T - Lagerish is the best to describe. More bread malt tasting than usual.

D - good carbonation with a lighter body.

O - Lager, amber. Ho hum at best.

Beautiful copper color with a decent head in the Ureich Pils glass. Suitably fizzy in the mouth. Seriously malty stuff, which I like well enough in this style.

This is more like an English brew with the fruity hops and a whiff of the Old Ale. Surprisingly sweet after some sipping. Modestly bittier aftertaste. This is not the bitter hop attack of many Red/Amber beers. Interesting and full bodied.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Flood Valley Homebrew in Chehalis.

Tap-a-draft fill from Growler Guys.

A nice red lager for the fall season. Tasty, with a bit of sweet bread and caramel flavor, mild bitterness.

Bottle from Michael's in Moses Lake. Solid amber, but nothing memorable. Just average, through and through. Finishes fast, too fast. was hoping for better.
