3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Dark copper, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Aroma of brown sugar, sweet berries, toffee, bread and the typical, slightly banana like, yeasty notes that are in many Anchor beers.
Tastes of red berries, bread, nuts, bitter citric hops and maple syrup finally.
Medium to full, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, zesty, bready.
Lovely! Quaffable, quite unique and nicely balanced between sweet and bready malts, bitter hops and the maple syrup. Overall a really accompished beer, that completely looks and tastes of autumn!

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ La Bodega ][ $1.60 ][ Pint ][ 11.28.14 ]
>> Pours bright red with thicker beige, rocky foam. Nose is gummy candies, some stale hop resin notes but nothing too offensive, candied orange, fall leaves. Taste is tea, fall leaves, orange peel, hoppier than expected. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
average frothy (1st) creamy (2nd) offwhite head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. hazy average-density dark orangeish-amber body. aroma: heavy malt, moderate hoppy, grass and orange. if: light sweet moderate bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Segue bem a escola americana, com mais lúpulo do que a amber ale tradicional, o que me desagradou, principalmente em panteões do estilo, como a rogue amber ale. O excesso de lúpulo a torna mais parecida com uma IPA, sendo apenas restrita por uma leve presença de malte no background. 35 s

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, yet crisp amber coloured body with a very thin, oily, dense and almost nitrogenated looking light tan head. Aroma of alcohol, nuts, earth, caramel and much more malt than anything else - strong, yet fairly nice smelling. Light to Medium-bodied; Rich, dense alcohol notes up front with some light spices, caramel and a pungent earthy and nutty bitterness show on the back end. Aftertaste shows a strong bitter earthy flavour and some citrus and piney hop notes which are very noticeable right at the end. Overall, an earthy and biting beer with some good flavours, but strong flavours to deal with to get the nice bite. I sampled this anchor-style twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joe’s in Falls Church (Bailey’s Crossroads), Virginia on 19-September-2014 for US$1,67 sampled at home in Washington on 14-November-2014.

Bottle- pours hazy amber, lots of wispy off white head and lacing. Nose is subtle, brown sugar, earth malts, mild hops. Lots of the same on the palate, dry and bitter with lasting maple sweetness and malt backing. Nice fall beer
