Another very easily drinkable beer. Nicely bittered and balanced. Nothing over the top. Perhaps a bit on the high end in price to be an every day beer, but other than that (and no longer being available here) I could see drinking this by the case.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Murky copper body with a large beige head. Malt and caramel aroma. Some fruit and a slight tang to the flavor. A good beer. Anderson Valley has a few good ones.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Pours a deep amber in colorm with a small off-white head. Flavors of malt that is crisp and clean. A decent amber ale that is better than most, yet is nothing outstanding.

VAYankee (330) - Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Amber/copper coloring with a cream colored head. Aroma is light sweet malt and a faint citrus hops. Flavor starts out malty and is then accented by a very faint citrus hops. Aftertaste is a mild tea leaf like bitterness.

Paid $1.69 for a 12-oz single. Comparing this to other ambers, this beer takes the cake in appearance. Very pretty, unfiltered amber (has a couple floaties), with a gigantic head. So far, every beer I've had from Anderson Valley has had a gorgeous head- and this one is no exception. Sweet floral... soft, sweet, luscious... not overpowering, yet not lacking. This is nice. Very refreshing taste. Sweetness fills the mouth at first bite, finishing with a slightly bitter rose-hip tea flavor. Nice, refreshing, and EXTREMELY drinkable. A fantastic Amber/Red Ale!!!

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 27, 2004
Nice malty sweet character. But hops enough to balance it out. I could drink a lot of this and it wouldn't get old.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2004
One of the most well-balanced beers I've had. Wonderful blend of piney, spicey, and floral hops caramel malts throughout the aroma and flavor. Slightly bitter, very refreshing. One of my favorite session beers.

YnotABeer (96) - Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2004
really pleasant. Smooth flavor with good body and a well balanced malt and hops taste; not too dry but slightly acidic. Color and lacing was nice.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 great amber color, good thick head slowly diminishing, caramel and hoppy nose. Drink it by the bottle, pint or pitcher and it'll leave you wanting more.
