Very dark brown beer with a good frothy head, the aroma is very airy and a bit oatmeal as well. A very , very dry beer but quite refreshing.

Thanks Joris, that was the one I was looking for. Had a Rogue Ale, scribbled down my notes and forgot what exactly the name was. Comparing your notes with mine this must be the one. Malt and blackcurrant aroma. Flavor has loads of vanilla and hops. Clean and fairly thin. Long bitter vanilla aftertaste.

Dark chestnut with reddish shine; slim yellow-brown head. Smell of American hops, crystal malt, cookies. very bitter; American noble and bitterhops. Lots of roasted malt, chocolate cake flavour. Bitterness gets metallic in the aftertaste. Long bittereffect. Nice hoppybeer, this. But I don't dig the difference between an A. amber and an IPA, drinking this. Bland, it certainly isn't.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Bottled, named Sea Otter Amber Ale. Reddish brown, crystal clear with small head. Flowery aroma. Lightly roasty with hard, clean mouthfeel and a rugged very bitter finish.

Very tasty, one of my new favorites in the amber department. A very beautiful ruby coloring, nice lacing and a slightly dimishing head that never really dissipated. Nice hoppy aftertaste with a mellow malty sweetness and a creamy mouth feel that goes a long way.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2004 I really like this beer. I'm about halfway through one right now. Beautiful color. A thin head still remains. The distinct Rogue flavor is present. Very smooth. A very good beer I will enjoy again and again.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Smoothy malty aroma, with a full tan head with decent lacing.Nice cloudy amber coloring. Medium body with an abundance of effervesence. Tastes mostly malty blended well with grapefruit type hop bite. Aftertaste is quite citrusy. Very smooth drinkable beer from a brewer I would expect that from.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Nice amber color,small tan foamy head that dissipated quite quickly.Malty sweet aroma with a decent hop presence and mild fruit,possibly citrus.Malty taste at first that later changes to hops and grapefruit.The after taste is mostly hops and grapefruit with a mild earthy tone to it.The feel is quite smooth making it fairly drinkable IMO but not in large quantity the hops would get to you after awhile.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Malty-earthy aroma (almost smells like a homebrew). Small off-white head. Hazy dark amber in color. The malt hop balance is very even. Medium bodied with fairly fizzy mouth-feel. An OK beer, not terrible, not outstanding.

more tawny than amber in colour, mild coffee/malty aroma, highly hopped flavour with coffee and slightly toasted notes, firm bodied, this is a very rich ale.
