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.

Dobre i bardzo dobre zapach to intensywny aromat chmielu amerykanskiego, jest tak silny i intensywny ze az milo. Kolor bursztynu. Typowy dla amber ale. Jeden z lepszych piw swojego stylu jaki chyba udalo mi sie skosztowac. Piana spora, gesta zbita i trwala. Polecam to goryczkowo wytrawne i jakze aromatyczne piwo. Nie tylko na deszczowe jesienne wieczory.

Pours amber reddish color with thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with notes of bread and a hint of maple. Taste is sweet caramel malt upfront with some bready malt notes on the follow through. Aftertaste is more caramel, bread malt with some toastiness and some earthy floral and grass hops on the finish. Palate is medium with some stickiness. Overall this an excellent amber ale for fall...slightly sweet and earthy malt that finishes with a touch of hoppy bite.

mostly caramel,toffee and maple sweet malt in the aroma maybe a hint of floral hops..great looking beer amber reddish brown clear with a thick foamy head.. taste..hmm,,maple syrup,caramel perhaps a smooth bit of canylike flavor with a bitterness felt at the end as tingly dryness.. a big flavor for a moderate octane beer,and I like it a lot better than most "October" types ive tried..medium bodied dry tingly finish...overall anchor brewing doesn’t put out as many varieties as some breweries but theyre always good this is like a west coast hoppy irish red with a bit of bock or porter thrown in

an assertive hop note backed up by sweet malt aroma. pretty involved, but balanced, aroma. medium copper color with a slight orange tint. reasonable head. quite involved flavor. some maltiness, caramel, some sweetness and a woody quality. hops make their appearance, balancing out the sweetness and malt. there’s a nice tangy note right at the end, followed by residual sweetness then a bitter note trailing off. clean finish. one of the most interesting anchor beers i’ve ever had.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear copper colour, rich creamy head. Lovely aroma of grapefruity hops, toasty malt and maple syrup. Mid sweet with solid body and firm, well rounded mouthfeel. Pine needles, maple syrup and light caramel. Piney somewhat resiny finish. Harmnious and elegant.

Pours a deep ruby red with a light tan head. Aroma of syrup and oddly, apricot. Taste is sweet with maple up front with a dry crisp hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je chmelové, s lehkým ovocným a zemitým nádechem. Pěna je zlato bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je krásná podzimní, tmavší zlato oranžová. Chuť má velmi příjemný citrusový nádech se slabším medovým náznakem, okraje jsou melounově sladké, jemné. Finiš je středně hořký vcelku dobře doplňující zbytek chuti a držící. Toto pivo opravdu krásně vystihuje podzim je krásné napohled, lahodné chuti a velmi vysoké pitelnosti.

Very hoppy. Pretty much an APA. I dig it. No maple taste whatsoever though so i dunno where the name comes from. I really like everything ive had from anchor.
