on tap at the edinburgh castle which was a bit dumb considering we were heading to the brewery a couple of days. anyway, one of the better amber ales, orchard aroma, quite full, light toffee and a pleasant dry finish

This ale is so similar in flavour in how strong it is i would classify it as a IPA if i was blindfolded tasting beer samples. Nice colour of warm leather brown and the head is set at a good amount throughout the drinnking period. its okay in my book which means i will be purchasing it in the future.

First Anderson Valley. Looks and smells great. Hope the rest lives up. Yup!!! Its lives up to its billing and then some. Great smooth fullbodied flavor with big eggshell head and nice dark amber color. Tastes is great!!! Another very good California beer.

mjg74 (2571) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours a dark amber color with a medium head. Alot of flavors going on in this beer. Has a nice hoppy taste, but not to strong. It tastes a little spicy at the end. Quality brewing from a great brewery.

Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
Deep amber, clear, very effervescent. Big off-white head displays tight lacing and lasts long. Shy nose of caramel reminiscent malt. Limited flavor range of caramelic malt and dominating various nuts. Mild acidity, the slightest leafy/almond skin bitterness. Light to medium body, highly carbonated and tongue-biting. Unexciting to say the least.

DocLock (8094) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours copper, with a slightly turbid appearance. Aroma of malt, hops, citrus, corn flakes, cabernet. Tastes malty, with some hops, caramel, iced tea in the finish. Slightly dry finish.

BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Nice hoppy/malt combo in the beer, same with the flavor. Hops not over powering. Dark amber in color with a creamy white head. Easy drinking.

CamdenD (1110) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 21, 2004
Very nice session beer. Highly drinkable and good kick. Has a nice malt backbone for a west coast beer and survives without bombing you with hops. Amber beers often lack character -- this beer does not.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Cloudy light brown with a big off white head. Smells caramelly and nutty. Very nutty flavor, almost overpowering, that tilts towards sweetness.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Deep copper body and soft cottony white head. Caramel and spice aroma. Almost has a pumpkin pie quality. This is a very decent amber.
