I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, almost cough syrup. Taste is sickly sweet, it almost felt like I was having a pepsi. Light roast, really not my thing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: April 21, 2016... OCCASION: a tiresome day ends in an old friend... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... APPEARANCE:thick, frothy, off-white head captures the vision first.. the effervescent, copper body is also impressive to look at... the lacing resembles camo, with zigzagging angles of entanglement... AROMA: caramel is up front and center, with subtle nut and soft hops... some bread and toasted malts make for an alluring aroma... PALATE: creamy, smooth, lightly hopped and pleasantly lingering... impressively sessionable... TASTE: tough to detect a dominant flavor here... the caramel is appreciable, with the sweet malts lightening the taste...some fruitiness--apple, pear--are present... OVERALL: I haven’t seen Anderson Valley offered locally for years, and then, lo and behold, I found this six at Hope... just as I remembered it: smooth, sweet, and sessionable... a beer that suits many occasions and rewards with just enough flavor... all that is right with the American amber genre...

From a large bottle, pours with a medium head, minor lacing. Beautiful dark Amber ale, nice on the tongue. Definitely above average, nice for Friday afternoon relaxing. Worthy of your time and money.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet caramel and toffee notes on the nose, the sweetness develops into a biscuit/shortbread freshness. Very clean, almost too sweet but balanced out by well used hops.
