look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

On tap at the Portland brewpub.


A: Pours a clear, amber-copper body with off-white head. I can't really comment on retention since it came in a taster size (4oz) courtesy of a server.

S: Mild aromas of toasted biscuit and grass.

T: This is where the beer shines. It finishes with an unmistakable, memorable flavor of bitter aspirin and fish. Yes, fish. I handed the sampler to alfrantzell and had him check. I compared it to salmon, while he likened it to trout. Perhaps my palate is damaged. I should be able to discern between various fish species. Either way, this didn't get finished.

O: If I can't even finish 4oz...

39 IBU 4.5 ABV

On tap at the Portland Brewpub. Served in a Deschutes Pint Glass.

A - Pours a dark orange with a tan head. Good retention, but no lacing left on the glass.

S - Very hoppy floral tones and some malts in the background.

T - The hops totally dominate here. Very floral, citrusy, and honeydew.

D - Good carbonation and average body.

O - Good, but the fresh hops dominate so much, I would have never guessed this as an Octoberfest.
