COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2015
Autumny amber beer from Anchor with stable, moussy, yellowish white head and a pretty, pure amber colour with light haze and vivid fizz. Perfumey nose with impressions of freshly cut grapefruit, soap, peanuts, biscuit, redcurrant, cheese, rust (probably from oxidation already setting in) and indeed a subtle hint of maple syrup. Dried fruits in the mouth, strong carbo as expected, minerally, some citrussy acidity, quickly turning bitter, a peppery and spicy hop bitterness which only increases towards the end and ensures a long, dry finish along with nutty, toasted malts and a subtly sweetish touch of the maple syrup. Relatively simple but pleasant and well-balanced beer, bearing Anchor’s quality signature.

Gurthnar (2374) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma malty, caramel, toffee, kind of British style. Also loads of fruity, resiny hops. Lightly hazy reddish amber colour, stable. Taste is rather hoppy, above moderate bitterness, resiny citrusy flavour, also lots of caramel. Nicely balanced, flavourful, tasty. Easily drinkable. Good one. Dry hoppy finish.

Scopey (7877) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods, Piccadilly. It pours clear red-amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is smooth, sweet maple syrup, brown bread, caramel digestive biscuits, leaf and pine. The taste is bitter-sweet, woody, earth, leather, varnish, maple syrup, caramel, resin, light alcohol sting and light spice with a rather dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good hit of bitterness. Decent stuff.

stevoj (2487) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Hints of maple, but not enough to distract from a solid brown ale. Clear copper body with small skin of a tightly beaded head. Malt dominates, some mild hops in the background, a hint of maple sweetness.

Honey and flower aroma. Flavour is sweet nectar with some bitterness. A bit plain but nothing wrong with it really apart from a bit thin

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.
