Headbanger (3851) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2008
12oz bottle-A crimson body with a nice tight off white head and an aroma of roasted malt, metallic, and pale lager. This medium bodied brew comes across with malt, hops, metallic, and again a pale lager. Finishes with some sweetness and caramel. Not the worst amber but not the best.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade as an extra. Pours a semi-clear brownish amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, a hint of grassy hops and some earthy spice. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt, grassy hops and caramel malt. Finish is semi-sweet a lingering floral and grassy hop aftertaste followed by some caramel malt flavors.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
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.

sloshgator (708) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2015
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."
