A perfect beer to share with your non-adventurous friends! Copper-toned with a roasty nose with a nice underlying hoppy aroma, this is smooth, light and refreshing. Not big on complexity, but big on fresh malt flavor. Finishes with just enough PacWest hops to satisfy the beergeek and not offend the Lite beer drinkers at your next BBQ!

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Pours a cloudy deep red, has a large creamy head that stuck around. Smells hoppy. The flavor is dominated by hops, but the malt doesn’t get a change to come out and play.

DocLock (8086) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Pours copper, with a tan head. Aroma of malt, some hops, and some toffee. Tastes very malty, with some sweet caramel, brown sugar, and fruitiness. Smooth, malty finish.

Nice looking, with a copper body and a beige head. Aroma is a blend of maltiness and hops. Caramel, citrus, floral. Good body. Flavor a blend of sweet, acidic, and good bitterness.

Bought it under the alias: Sea otter amber ale, 22oz bomber from rogue brew puc in san fran.. stuck it to the light to notice deep ruby color, white head.. nice head, thick. Tastes sort of plain, very well balanced for an amber ale...good for the style.. rogue is a great brewer

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Poured a deep amber with a large, lasting rocky head. Nose was floral, with some subdued malt character, indicative of dry hopping. Flavor was mostly hop bitterness, the underlying malt being well hidden, but not so unbalanced as to be unpleasant. Light mouthfeel, medium finish.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 30, 2004
Beautiful ruby color with offwhite, almost beige head that’s quite rocky. Thick, fair lacing left behind. Aroma is yeasty, alcoholic, heavily malty of caramel and honey, hops aroma is floral. Sweet front of caramel followed by a serious blast of bitter hops, pine, grapefruit skin and a lot of alcohol flavor; dry. Body is medium-full, foamy carbonation, watery finish, but very dry and makes your mouth water. Strong bitter flavor and kind of nice; not a session beer!

It's a little suspicious that this beer has been around for so long, but I've only seen it on our Minnesota shelves lately, post Sept. 11, 2001, bedecked with Uncle Sam and American flag and all. I don't doubt the integrity of their feelings, or pride, or sympathy, it's just..you know? A little too well-timed? Nice, creamy, well-maintained head, above a fully coppery/near violet color. Aroma is delicious, full of spices, cinnamon?, cloves?, dry fruit, sweet, flowery, ..a little coppery. Dazzling hop profile, but it mellows out a bit. Great, smooth finish. Much hoppier, darker, and tastier than so many other "amber ales" I've tasted "A portion of the proceeds go to charity..", says the label. Which charity, and why? Who cares, for the beer is good. But am I supposed to drink to support widows, or fight terrorism, or what? I'm confused....

On tap at Taco Mac: brown, very hoppy, malty, detected caramal and dark fruit.
