3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Pours a hazy copper with a golden hue and white head. Smells of caramel, malts, alcohol and some fruit I think. Has a plain malty taste with a bitterness afterward. This was ok for me, have had better. I just revisited this and I really like the malt hop balance. I had the Sea Otter the second time around.

I was gonna save this... oh another day, but after just having their other amber ale I had to try this one too. My bottle was called Red Fox Amber Ale, but it sent me here. Thereís a red fox on the bottle... not some drunk with a hat. Anyway... with a completely belligerent pour this made a pretty large head. Reddish brown body. Itís a lot like their other one. Nut, roast and caramel come out in the aroma, mainly the first two. Itís also hoppy with some earth. Almost identical to their other amber ale except in color and balance. If anything, I donít like the more bitter finish as much. It felt a little off balance, but otherwise this was another very nice amber ale.

Pours a lightly hazy amber with a dense khaki head. Somme light lacing. Smells of mild yet fruity hops.
Taste is of fruity malt with strident hops cutting through the malt. Nice bitter finish. Mouth is crisp and aftertaste in the lingering low level hops. Rinse and repeat. Not complex, just tasty. Really drinkable amber with a decent hops profile. You wonít find too many amber ales more enjoyable than this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Pours amber with little to no head. Hoppy aroma and hoppy taste. Bitter but pleasant. Lacks the depth of a great beer but still a solid amber.

Rich slightly hazy amber color, weak head, no lacing and a floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with some toasty malt but unbalanced to the hoppy side, medium bitter finish.
