4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. Excellent Amber, similar to the best English Bitters I've had. Malty to the finish. Fullers London Pride is one of my favorites and this matches it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Labeled Anthony’s Amber two years ago. A nice floral hop aroma. This is good. Seems almost more hops than malt, a bit of caramel. A great amber beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really dug this beer. The taste is incredibly full and earthy, with a solid maltiness holding it up. An excellent session beer too. A rare gem that I happened to come across.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouring with a modest-sized frothy ivory coloured head which produced a ’bit’ of lacing, the colour was a most attractive rich amber. The aroma was gently malted and the taste was of some nice malt. A plesant, refreshing beer to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nearly making against the grain with this one I see. Aroma of caramel malt with both overripe and tart fruit tones. Flavor has the same with the addition of a citrus edge and some gritty earth. That gritty earth translates to the pleasant, giving the impression of a leathery coarseness. I rather liked it and was surprised to see it clock in sub-3.0.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-red color with a quickly fading off-white head. Seawater amber malt with a solid hop undertone in the aroma. Lots of specialty malt, crystal presumably, give it a thick mouthfeel for a beer of it’s relative low ABV. Easy drinking and sessionable, while still havign a decent flavor profile. Solid syrupy West Coast hop backbone is certainly present, but never dominating or astringent. Semi-soapy amber malt aftertaste. Pretty solid amber overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of scrizzz. Pours a clear amber/orange with a small ring of white head. Aroma of buttery popcorn and sweet malt. Flavor of sweet sugary fruitiness, strawberry, and nice malt. Pretty tasty and drinkable. I’m surprised at these low ratings because this is a good amber!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (warm – salvaged a bottle that fell off the top of the fridge and compromised its seal)… Mostly clear, deep, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The toasty nose offers up lots of caramel and biscuit, but also has an earthy undertone. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Even warm, the flavor is well-balanced as the toasted, caramely sugars are toned down by just-enough earthy bitterness. Finishes crisp, then lightly sweet. Dang, maybe all beers should be drunk at about 80° F. Bottle provided by riversideAK!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Standard amber ale -- fairly well balanced. It could use more ingredients. (More of everything.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours clear amber with white head. The aroma is malty sweet with crystal malts, lightly roasted malts and then prunes, raisins, date meat and growing level of sweet caramel malts. The taste has caramel malt notes and dashes of sweet dark fruity esters. It then moves toward an increasing level of vague hop bitterness. Thin watery finish.
