Likes: Color, Head, Aroma, and flavor

Dislikes: low ABV

Environment:  The flavor and body of this ale immediately places you at the Oregon coast, enjoying the beautiful scenery, salty air, and warmth of a fire. 

Recommend: Yes.  The ale is heavy but with a low ABV a person can have multiple of these and not feel the effects.  The flavor is very balanced, and quite pleasing.  This makes it easy to pair with a beef stew, roast beef sandwich, hamburger, or a pot roast. Might even consume with a deep-dish pizza, but once done eating, I’m not sure the person is going to be moving much.
