Very nice copper colored ale, it has a complex malt & hop flavor and aroma. I believe it is one of the better amber’s on the market and will surely buy it again.

29th May 2015: on-tap at the Seal Beach Beachwood BBQ outlet and called ’Eel River Amber’ on the board. No mention of ’organic’ or ABV. I assume this is the same beer? Like the name suggests this is an amber coloured brew, mine came with a good, large head. Nice blend of aromas and tastes, leaning towards a pale malty sweetness but with a hop bite in there too. A good start to a mini-session I had that day.

Eel River Certified Organic Amber Ale is not too complex but more of a refreshing brew. Nice dark orange pour with a nice head, but aroma barely detected. Taste is slightly sweet and smooth with a nice tropical fruit note. Finish is clean but kind of a letdown with not residual complexity. Org. Amber Ale is refreshing addition to any meal and a nice session beer.

...saying you wouldn’t buy it unless it was on sale is teling too. i fully agree with that. it’s a clean, no frills basic amber ale that’s nothing offensive and nothing worth spending my hard earned coin on."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red / brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Some trickling lacing slides down the sides of the glass.
The smell was a grainy sweet caramel maltiness lightly hopped in a slight bittersweet sort of way.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me with a semi - rolling sweetness over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good beer I could down again.
