I love this ale. It is even better if you are lucky enough to find it on tap. I really can not say enough about anderson valley brewing company, they make some of the best beers in the world. As a homebrewer , this is the kind of beer I strive to make. Just feels really great in the mouth, excellent CLEAN taste. You can feel the love in this beer. Loads of flavor and none of them bad.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Another favorite from Anderson Valley. Deep amber with an off white head. Malty palate, subltle hop flavoring and aroma. An excellent example of the style, and very drinkable. Since itís not overpowering in its own right, it serves well with a meal.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Draught at Tylerís in Durham, NC. Clear brown color with thin whit head. Nice caramel nose and flavor. Slightly sweet. No hop flavor or aroma. Easy to drink, but not exceptional.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a big tan head. Smells citrusy, sweet, malty.Tastes much like it smells with a slightly nutty taste. After trying Fat Tire last night, I can see the difference. This beer tastes so much better.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2005
Reddish orange clear colour with a creamy white head. Clean caramely and fruity aroma with strong notes of raw yeast. Earthy, caramely flavour, hints of black currant with a disturbing yeasty undertone. Grassy and yeasty aftertaste.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle: This beer is another reason why I havenít changed my favorite style from amber to ESB. Every time I think about switching to an ESB, I taste another great Amber ale and . . . anyway, this is one of those. I have had this two times and both times have really enjoyed it. It pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head and sticky lacing. It has nice aromas of syrup and caramel. The tastes equally enjoyable with a sweet cardboard aftertaste. I think this amber portrays what a balanced amber is supposed to be like. The body and feel are full which isnít always the case for ambers. Pretty good.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and quite hoppy, but also with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of cow berries and caramel and again with nice hoppy notes, leading to a dry end.
