nutty maltiness on the nose. amber pour (Imagine that) with a fair amout of off white head. Sweet raisins and plums with maltiness. Very good mouthfeel. nice palate. garrettnjay (20) - - JUL 3, 2015
Surprised by the low ratings. This beer is well balanced with great flavor, solid on the nose, with a pleasant mouthfeel. This beer would pair with a number of lunch menu items: brats, veggie burgers, or just a good old American cheeseburger. The hotter it gets outside, the better it tastes. Balanced and not over-filling, so be ready to open up a second one. Another great value at a reasonable price-point from Lost Coast. herbsmoker99 (11) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 26, 2002
nice, smooth beer but a bit weak. very enjoyable beer....................... JamesCrosson (36) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Definitely honey in this brew. Maybe some strawberry’s or peach’s, something sweet that I can’t put my finger on. I enjoyed this brew. Not the best head, but a nice color, good color and a refreshing albeit sweet taste. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
This is a solid, crystal-clear amber ale with a lumpy off-white head. The aroma is of piney hops, malt, biscuits and hay. The flavor is of medicinal, complicated hops, sweet, smooth malt. It’s dry, almost sour and well-bittered. Nice West Coast Amber!

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 other amber ales to objectively determine which one was best. The beers were Full Sail Amber, Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, New Belgium Fat Tire, Lost Coast Alleycat, and Alaskan Amber. You can watch the video here to see who won:
