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.

Not very strong aromas, a hint of toffee. Pours clear copper with a thick white head. Great flavor, a mix of sweetness and bitter with a bitter finish, very drinkable!

Bottle. Nice rich copper color, large frothy off white head. Pine cone and malt aroma. Light body with a sweet malt flavor and a medium finish that has a little hop twist.

Allegedly there is maple syrup flavor in this beer. Prepare your taste buds for something more like a red IPA. Pretty hoppy, minimal watery malt flavor, and a tablespoon of maple syrup for the entire kettle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2015
355mL bottle BBE: 10.2016. Lightly chilled. Pours an auburn body with deep haze and a medium, tight off-white head. Medium-light intensity nose of maple syrup, vanilla, onion, earthiness, rose, papaya and a slight cat litter-tray aroma. A light sweetness is lifted by a more moderate bitterness on the tongue. The medium-full body has a ticklish texture and medium carbonation, with hints of fennel seed in the herbal finish. A beer that keeps on giving, with more aromas and flavours emerging as the beer heats up. Amazingly complex for an amber.

Bottle. Pours copper with a thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pine and citrus. Flavor of caramel, fruit, citrus, pine, subtle maple and had some nuttiness.

Batavi (220) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2015
Geproefd tijdens bierproeverij, uitgeschonken in Struise BD glaasje. Amberkleurig oranjeachtig bier met een mooie romige schuimkraag. Aroma van karamel, zoetige ahornsiroop, veel florale en houtige hop, als in een IPA. De smaak is zacht en licht kruidig en floraal. Met tonen van karamel, ahornsiroop gebalanceerd met drogere tonen van pijnboom hars en licht bittere hopsoorten. Met een medium lange zacht bittere afdronk. Dit is ook weer een prima bier van Anchor Brewing, een mooi herfstbier met elementen van een IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Where and how: tasting, bottle 355ml
Aroma: frontal tartness followed by maple sugars. Fuller softer herbal finish.
Appearance :
Top: very large, off-white lasting creamy crown.
Base: amber, clear
Palate : medium bodied, soft with soft carbonation and long finish.
Taste: it does feel a bit heavy, bit raw with its green harsh hop side. It does improve as it warms up.
other notes interesting but not to my liking.

wiedrzensky (463) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 9, 2015
Shared bottle. Pours is cloudy amber with thick white head that doesn’t last long, fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, pine, resin, maple, sirupy. Taste is light to moderate sweet, moderate bitter, caramel and resin notes. Light body, thick texture, dry, abrupt finish. Aroma is quite promising, but a lack of body was a bit disappointing, anyway good, extraordinary amber ale.

unclemike (2684) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Pours a fairly clear amber with a large dense white head. Aromas of malt and maple with a touch of sweetness. Just about medium-bodied, a little bit sweet and malty with a tangy touch of maple. Soft spices with a bit of yeast into a fairly dry finish

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company pint glass From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) Price: $1.42 Purchased: Oct. 15, 2015 Consumed: Oct. 19, 2015 Misc.: Bottled on Aug. 12, 2015 Poured an auburn, clear color with four fingers of khaki white, frothy head, which seemed to settle nicely on the top of the glass. Lots of thin bubble streams coming up along the sides from the bottom of the glass. Uneven, foamy layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. A nice looking beer. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled a good mix of hops and malts. Specifically got buttery malts, maple syrup, nuts, wood, caramel, herbal, toffee, toast and Pacific Hallertau. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted lightly better than the nose. Got toasty bread crust, toasty nuts, bitter wood, caramel, roasted toffee, oak, rustic maple, earthy herbal and booziness lingering on the tongue after. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Sticky texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, woody, boozy finish. (Feel - 3.25) This was just an OK beer, which is the rule for me on most Anchor beers. (Overall - 3.50) 3.58 81 B

Smell: balanced aroma of herbs, caramel, roast, malt, nutty. Pour: dark and mysterious, small head that retains decently. Taste: where’s the maple? Tastes a whole lot like the anchor steam original amber ale. Palate: very quick to fade, doesn’t leave a strong impression.
