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.

dambor (65) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2014
Pours copper with a beautiful head. Aroma: flowers, a sweet hint of maple syrup and herbs. Taste: pretty herbish and dry, with a bit of sweetness (from the syrup, I suppose). Again a very good and elegant beer from Anchor.

Bottle at Scion. Poured a dark ruby amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was lots of sweet caramel notes, sweet maple character. Flavor was light malt, some nutty notes and maple.

EdKing (1967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from Wholefoods Piccadilly. Pours rusty red/orange in the glass, thin off white head. Nose is toffee and caramel, maple syrup, earthy hop, ale fruity, quite a lot of hop bitter in there too. Taste is sharp and tangy hop, toffee and caramel, earthy hop, maple syrup, boiled sweet. It’s a nice beer. Has that classic caramel Anchor malt character balanced with a bit of bitter hop.

solidfunk (4322) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Pretty happy red with a low enough maple addition to not take away from this. Light bitter finish. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Thanks to radagast. Bottle at scion.

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2014
A good amber. Substantial hop aroma aroma and dry flavor of hops and grain. Dry all around really, especially in the finish. Nice copper color and a substantial head. More of a pale ale really.

tmongoose (1366) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 15, 2014
12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium orange with off white head. Minor lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma is medium to heavy malt and hops and caramel. For an amber ale this has a nice hop bite to it. Quite malty on the front end. Overall pretty solid amber.

pdx77 (1426) - Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2014
From bottle. Clear amber color. Aroma is citrus hoppiness and crystalized maple. Taste is tart citrus like grapefruit and a lot of caramel and maple malts. Both nicely bitter and sweet.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a brilliantly clear, deep amber color; modest head formation (creamy texture, off-white); tight lacing. A fruit-forward, slightly syrupy aroma: a lot of candied sweetness, plus ripe red fruits; a light dose of earthy hops, but mostly focused on the sweet parts; I can’t say I’d immediately peg this as maple syrup from the nose. Medium body or a touch higher; medium-high, fine-bubbled CO2; there’s a tinge of warming alcohol here, at least when it warms; following the nose, plenty of red fruits, a maple syrup/slightly caramelized sweetness, and a little more bitterness than was suggested by the aroma.

radzik5555 (427) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne z iskrą. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, w kolorze ecru. Dość trwała i firankuje.
Aromat: Słodki, pieczone jabłko, syrop klonowy, karmel, pieczywa, cytrusy, mango i minimalnie alkoholowy.
Smak: Przypieczone ciasto, toffee, karmel, podpalany cukier, ciemne pieczywo a bardziej skórka przypalona ciemnego pieczywa, lekko metaliczne. Goryczka niska+, lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, szczególnie w posmaku.
Odczucie: Ciało lekko poniżej średniego, nasycenie CO2 średnie do wysokiego, faktura kremowa z suchym/wytrawnym finiszem.
Całość: Całkiem fajne red/amber ale, ale trochę za bardzo alkoholowe i lekko metaliczne.
