12oz bottle. Aroma is moderately malty with notes of molasses, plum, apple, pear and red wine. Light doughy yeast and a little pine hopps. Poured a small foamy off-white head that mostly diminshed and left virtually no lace. Hazy body with a medium amber brown hue. Flavor starts lightly sweet and finishes same but with a little bitterness. Hopps are much more apparent in taste than in aroma. Average duration. Palate is light/medium and watery flat. I really liked the nose on this brew and was pleased with the flavor but it was too weak. I liked how the hopps are hidden but I’m left wanting that taste to be more intense. This brew is well above average.

I have been drinking this great beer for years, but discovered that I have never rated it. This amber ale poured with a decent beige head. The flavor is quite balanced with a mellow malty flavor and a more hoppy bitter finish. This is my favorite Anderson Valley brew.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 (Re-rate 9-28-07) Intersting mix of hops and malt. Thick brown amber - caramel color. Very foamy head. Heavier on the palate than I thought it would be, quite thick Hops taste that is fairly good. Nice rich and smooth finish.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Pours amber into the glass, with a medium head and cotton-candy lace. Mostly bready nose, with trace caramel and toffee notes. The flavors are of light caramel malts, copper, light biscuits, and finishes with a bit of a pale, biscuity, spiced hops. Light bitters on the end match the satiating yet light mouthfeel. Sweetens as it warms, and the body is round but not heavy. Offers a decent pull.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2007
pours a muddled copper color from the bottle. sweet malts dominate the aroma followed by floral hops. flavor is the same a nd very well balanced. great food friendly beer.

BREWMUSKCLES (2558) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2007
a good bitter. broomstraw taste nicely bitter with a clean finish. there is a nice german bitter with a grapefruit hidden flavor that works quite well! good carbonation and creamy yet effervesent enough. malt and hop characters conspire adequately.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Pours a dark caramel color with a nice off white head. Smell at first is of mostly hops and a touch of caramel like sweetness. A very nice balanced smell. Taste is definitely more malty at first and overall tastes nice, and balanced. As it warms, the mild hop flavor dissipates somewhat and becomes more of a backdrop to the big caramel creamy taste. Definitely changes as it warms a bit. Overall a good rich amber.
