Fogg and Suds. Pours amber with decent sized head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavour is quite rich of caramel malts making this beer a tad sweet. Some nice herbal bitterness on the finish. Clean and fresh.

12oz bottle. Clear ruby garnet hue. White halo with a clear circle encasing a skin of head. Perfumy hop nose. Plummy and cookie aromas. Medium and smooth. Nice burn and tingling dryness. Caramel malt note. More spicy and peppery hops. Americanized hop driven Amber. But the best of the three Ambers I tried tonight. (AVBC, Great Divide Amber, Mendocino Red Tail) Tasted 9/26.

Bottle. This was a terrific amber. I was really pleasantly surprised as other beers I have tried from AVBC have been mediocre. Murky copper pour with a fluffy white head. A thin layer of foam stuck around on top throughout the whole glass - nice lacing. Malty and delicious, medium body - very smooth , very balanced. My full rec.

Bottle, Sept 2006. Aroma was crisp, with a strong malt element. Color was a reddish-brown, with almost a golden/orange look to it. A nice malt flavor with hints of hops. A light bitterness at the end, but nothing too strong. Not a big fan of this style, but this was nice.

Bottle. Clear amber-ruby color with a thick rocky light tan head. Aroma of caramel malt and fruity esters. Smooth palate with flavors of light caramel malt with a mellow backing of hops. Nicely balanced. Mostly dry finish, with a fleeting hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

Brilliantly smooth and robust. Caramel malt just glides across your tongue and down your throat, with a touch of bitterness in the back to make you wanting to go back for more. Some hops there to provide balance, but without really coming out and showing their stuff. Just like all the AV beers, this is a fantastic example of the style. Brewed exactly to specifications and done perfectly. The only problem is, it’s such a boring style that it’s hard for this to earn a huge score. Still, very well done.

Clean crisp taste with a good mixture of carmel and hops. Its goes down crisp with a slight bitterness at the end. A good all around Ale.

12 oz bottle; Aroma was very chocolatey, caramel and extremely intising. Not one of my favorites but was really up there on flavor-- lots of hoppiness and not much of a smooth but more bitter taste (which I personally love).

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2010 12oz bottle provided by R. House. Poured a sherry colour. Great complex malts with awesome balance in finish. Full, creamy texture. Seems like this brewery, when the bottles aren’t bad, really do their beers well. A very nice brew for sipping and enjoying.
