A medium-bodied pale ale with a beautiful copper color, a robust head, and the rich flavor of caramel malt.

22 OZ Bomber pours a chestnut brown, with a nice medium foamy head, some lacing, slightly diminishing. Aroma of Carmel and malt. A taste of malt, with a slight bitter finish. Not overly impressed, good but not great.

12 oz bottle Deep amber colour with an off white head. Citrusy/grapefruity hop aroma over caramelly/toasty maltiness. Quite fresh smelling. Flavour is well-balanced with a bit of earthiness behind all of the sweet maltiness. Biscuity/crackery malts. Sweet, but not overly so. Good balance. Definitely one of the better amber ales I’ve had.

Was going to rate this one pretty low, but after a few more tastings, the beer grew on me. Burnt amber color with an odd head: the sudsy head stuck together in clumps as it dimished to a thin layer. Plenty of lacing. Aroma was sweet and fairly strong on the hops as would be expected from an American amber, with a little citrusy fruit in there as well. Flavor is sweet to start out with a very long hop finish. Fizzy palate, burning sensation, medium body. A robust, heavy amber, although it mellows as it warms. Prefer the balance in Alaskan Amber better.

really good amber ale, everything that Anderson Valley does is good. This is their "house" beer and it is good. Like Rogue Amber a bit better but this one is great!

22 oz bottle. Clear peachy brown with a smooth tan head. Mild piney orange, caramel and cream. Nice body with soft buzzy carb. Some odd tastes going on. Ginger hops, scotch and roasted grapefruit. Light dryness, powdered sugar and lime.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2006
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.
