From bottle... poured amber with quick white head. Aroma was roasty dirt. Not much flavor at all. Some malts, mainly water with a bitter end. Not a fan.

Bottle from Toft Vin, Copenhagen - fuzzy dark amber pour with white head. Sweet fruity and bready malty aroma and taste, light toasty, with some citrus marmalade and sweet caramel prominence, toffeish, some faint nuttiness, sweet malty finish. Ok amber overall.

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.

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.

It has the amber color, but not quite the Amber taste. Still, slightly better than average.
