Bottled as Sea Otter Ale. Pours light brown with a nice head. Aroma is malty, a little smoky. Taste is toffee-ish. A very nice amber ale. I could easily drink another.

a nice amber beer. Aroma has cookie/ toasted bread maltiness, with some hops and yeast. The problem with good breweries is the standard they are held to. Despite it being an overall good amber, it isn’t one of Rogue’s best brews.

Pours dark tan to amber in color with a real frothy head. Smells like roasted malt and a bit of caramel. Hops dominate the taste. Beer tastes a bit bitter at first but as your taste buds adjust you can taste a nice roasted malt flavor. A bit soapy on the finish. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 Rerate: May 27, 05 This isn’t as good as I remember it being. Aroma is floralish. Flavor is full of floral hints. I can sense some malt in the beginning, and it ends with a sort of coffee bitterness. Still pretty good, but not quite as great as I remembered it being.

First Rate: Poured a dark amber color with a good white head. I smell a little fruit...sweet...a fresh smell. Nice. The taste is of floral, some hoppy bitterness, and very well balanced. Delicious! Initial taste has more maltiness, while the finish is slightly dominated by a hoppy bitterness. After tasting this, I am very impressed. I got better quality than I thought I would...I will drink this again most definitely! A definite must try if you like this type of brew. I hope this rating helps. I’m going to watch Inspector Gadget now. 4.0 overall.

Eructoblaster (3362) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2005
Bottle - 650ml. Deep amber/copper body topped with a lasting average beige frothy head. Wonderful roasted malt aroma with a good presence of hops (Cascade & Golding), brown sugar and spices. Texture is mild, and taste is dominated by hoppiness. Lively carbonation and a long and lasting hoppy finish. This is a superb sample of American Amber Ale.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 12, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Sea Otter Red Ale bottle. Pours a deep amber with small dark-tan head that leaves some lace. Aroma is of sweet, sugary malts, some fruits and a touch of hops. Taste leans toward the malty side with a nice tangy fruitiness. A little bit of a sweet malty backbone with a bitter hoppy finish. Average beer.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Cloudy, medium-dark, orange-brown color, with a medium light brown head. Slightly fruity, sweet nose (I think from the hops). Pretty sweet, citrus (grapefruity) taste. The hops I think overpower the malts a good bit. Creamy-smooth, slightly dry finish. Yum.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Amber with a big off white head. Balanced flavour and aroma of malt with fruity hops. A good all around beer.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Hazy orange-red with tan head. Aroma grapefruity nutty cardamomy goodness. Flavor of tasty malts and mid-roast grains. Creamy body, smooth creamy IPA finish.

Pours amber with a big tan head. Light fruit and coffee aroma. Taste is malty with a hint of hops. Not a hoppy as I had planned for. Creamy mouthfeel. Decent.
