This is a quintessential English ale with just a tad more hops to give it a west coast personality. Reminds me of Fish Tail amber ale. Man this was delicious!

This 22oz typifies what Anderson Valley does--for good or bad--they produce a better-than-average beer, but usually not great. For the price point, it is honestly not a bad value. Smooth, plenty of caramel, and unremarkable.

nerdboy19 (137) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 27, 2016
Didn’t expect anything, but pretty good indeed. Bought one bottle for 2$. Worth the price. Nice grassy, little citrus hoppy aroma and bready, caramel malty aroma. Little bit watery and light, but very balanced and drinkable.

KeefOz (1265) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2016
Poured a crystal clear amber with a tint of orange. Three-finger off-white frothy head retained OK and laced well. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma very slightly of malt and no real hops. Taste of moderately rich sweet caramel with very low bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Crisp and smooth with a very light bitterness on the finish. Ordinary.

Rammer (394) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle. Not special, aroma and taste weak. Little fruit and light bitter finish. Poor beer.

Buen color tostado ambar, espuma blanca y consistente. Olor agradabel. Primer sabor suave, seguido de un amargor que va dejando paso a tintes de caramelo al final. Muy buen conjunto. Cerveza notable

Sweet bready, toffee nose. Flavor is same plus apple/floral esters, buttery biscuit, faint grassy hops.

Aroma a lúpulo y dulce. Color miel oscura, espuma abundante, aunque poco persistente. Sabor a caramelo, tostado, lúpulo. Leve amargor al final. Muy recomendable.

Tons of caramel flavour nicely balanced with the leafy hops. Unfortunately a little bit oxidised/flat cardboardy tasting, like many British bitters when bottled. Still getting to grips with this style- seems a bit like British bitters surprisingly.

Caramelly, initially a bit bitter but balanced later on. Would drink again, but not first choice.
