3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Got this in cans (all the local store had) and upon opening the can there was a thick foam rising fast so my first taste was sucking down the suds before they found thier way to the floor. Suds wasn’t bad so was looking foward to actually having some of the beer. Pouted up into glass a dark amber brew with thin head that lays down to lace quickly. Aroma is malty sweet with some wood notes to it. Taste is caramel malts and some hop bitterness. Fairly well balanced but thick, like did they stop the ferment too soon. For this thick of a brew I would think it would have a higher ABV. Decent brew overall and I did drink down the whole 6 pack with no problems but plan to only purchase this agian if it is on sale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, almost cough syrup. Taste is sickly sweet, it almost felt like I was having a pepsi. Light roast, really not my thing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: April 21, 2016... OCCASION: a tiresome day ends in an old friend... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... APPEARANCE:thick, frothy, off-white head captures the vision first.. the effervescent, copper body is also impressive to look at... the lacing resembles camo, with zigzagging angles of entanglement... AROMA: caramel is up front and center, with subtle nut and soft hops... some bread and toasted malts make for an alluring aroma... PALATE: creamy, smooth, lightly hopped and pleasantly lingering... impressively sessionable... TASTE: tough to detect a dominant flavor here... the caramel is appreciable, with the sweet malts lightening the taste...some fruitiness--apple, pear--are present... OVERALL: I haven’t seen Anderson Valley offered locally for years, and then, lo and behold, I found this six at Hope... just as I remembered it: smooth, sweet, and sessionable... a beer that suits many occasions and rewards with just enough flavor... all that is right with the American amber genre...

From a large bottle, pours with a medium head, minor lacing. Beautiful dark Amber ale, nice on the tongue. Definitely above average, nice for Friday afternoon relaxing. Worthy of your time and money.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet caramel and toffee notes on the nose, the sweetness develops into a biscuit/shortbread freshness. Very clean, almost too sweet but balanced out by well used hops.

Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy medium-amber pour with thick white foam. Lots of lace. Creamy mouthfeel. Full caramel malts balanced with drying hops. Toffee pudding. Yellow plums. Golden raisins. Wet leaves. Portobello mushrooms. Spicy finish. Not spectacular but it works. Impressive for a session brew.
