3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Seijo Ishii. Nice hoppy nose--citrus and grass; a bit of caramel and maple syrup. Bright, glowing red, clear, with a high, fine head. Flavor is sweet caramel at first, somewhat soda-like fruitiness, then a lot of very earthy bitterness in the finish. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The nose has a sweet maple scent. Pours a nice reddish - amber with a small khaki head. Tastes of bitter hops, caramel, and maple. Sharp on the palate at first, then a creaminess, and followed by smooth finish. Get some lingering hops on the back end.

Not sure how or why, but yet another review lost. Having to go by memory, but I remember being underwhelmed and a bit disappointed. My numbers are right though because I jotted them down.

Today I helped an old lady cross the street despite the fact that she didnt want to. Her yelling did not phase me. I am a hero. I am legend. I am not quite digging this beer. Mucky.

Nice looking, excellent aromas and a well balanced overall contribute to the main feature of this beer: it’s very easy to drink, but not a low class. Very good beber

Beautiful, beautiful beer. A fiery red with tight rocky head. Big malt flavours and naturally quite sweet. I could do with a bit more balance in this and the flavour profile became a bit muddied as it warmed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pretty coppery amber with a tall, dense foamy tan head. Nice caramel, toasted malt and earthy hops in the nose. Dark bread, toasted malt, caramel, earthy hops, light fruit and floral hops make up the flavor profile. Medium body but chewy with a dense, creamy and bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, dark bread, light fruit, floral hops, earthy hops and toasted malt notes.

Another solid Anchor entry. A full bodied ale with a good balance of malls and hops. Also, a hint of maple.

Bottle pour. Pours a copper color with a slightly sweet malty aroma. Really nice caramel like flavor with an expected touch of maple. Just a really good, super easy drinking, full of flavor amber beer here. Really enjoyed this one. Just plain good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Excellent appearance marks. Slope-shouldered 12oz bottle. Great label. Oaky, red-brown beer with a clingy white head. Aroma reminded me a bit of an English bitter - tawny, tannic, a little vanilla and toffee, a little sweaty. As with most amber ales, it’s too tannic for me to really enjoy it. Technically pretty good though. Medium to slightly light body. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.
