hopdog (9453) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Tasted the Sea Otter Amber Ale labeled version. Poured a hazy, medium mahogany color with an average size off white head. Hoppy (grass) and caramel aromas and tastes. The taste was a little bit of a let down based upon the promising aroma. Thin and watery palate.

presario (4756) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Nice head and lacing. Nice hoppy aroma for an amber. Flavourful amber. Amplifies the flavour of whatever you are eating at the time. Malty and hoppy. Tangy citrus finish. More IPA than amber.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Sea Otter Red Ale - Bottle pours a hazy red brown with a nice thick head and lace ring. The aroma is of hops. The flavor has a nice bready malt backbone to fully support a crisp hop covering and a lingering sour in the back. The palate seems fairly rich. This is a good beer.

The last of the Rogues that I brought back from Newport, this one really impressed me. Being an amber, the appearance was a bit surprising; the beer poured a rather dark, cloudy brown that only really approached amber around the edges of the glass. Aroma was floral and crisp, dominated by hops. The flavor, however, was more marked by a delicious sweetness with notes of citrus and perhaps apple. Nice creamy mouthfeel, and a light, crisp finish. Good stuff.

gabbo27 (5) - whittier, California, USA - JUL 23, 2004 does not count
beautiful dark red color with a cream colored head. Nice hoppy aroma. Well balanced flavors of malt and hops with a perfectly hoppy finish. An exellent example of this style.

EtownEraser (63) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Bottle. I was actually surprised as to how dark this one poured. A nice brown amer body with an off-white head. Nice aroma of hops mixed with a gentle sweetness of malts. Flavor was excellent with hops and malts. well balanced. This one was a nice surprise.

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2004
Poured a dark red/amber colour with a foamy tan head. The aroma is sweet malts and hops. Taste is roast malty, hoppy, sweet and bitter. Smooth with a pretty good mouthfeel. A pretty well balanced beer.

07.10.04 Bomber. As usual, Rogue comes through with a really nice, very well balanced beer that is true to what I expect from the style. This pours a dark amber, almost red; smallish head, minimal lacing. Aromas are nicely floral. Flavors are thick and malty offset well by a solid hop bite. Good stuff; not amazing, but what amber ale is?
