22oz Sea Otter Amber Ale. Pours a nice dark copper color with a good sized fizzy head. Nose is quite hoppy and caramel. Taste is full, some hops and malt, bit of nut feeling to it. Finishes with a nice bitterness.

harrisoni (17573) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2005
650ml bottle from Utobeer. Slightly hazy, amber/ruby beer with lasting tight beige head. Intense American hop aroma with some chocolate, grapefruit. Choc/coffee flavours with tangy hops which tingle on the tongue. Pink grapefruit on finish. Some brown sugar and raisins as well. This got better as the bottle went down

Sea Otter Red Ale. Reddish amber with white lacing. Aroma is caramel malts, floral hops, and a bit of spiciness. Very creamy and malty, but not too sweet. A nice touch of floral hops in the end. A good session brew.

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Poured from a bottle with a creamy head and a nice amber red color. The aroma is subtle with a hint of hops over a sweet base. Roasted malts with java notes on the tongue and piney, grassy hop flavors in the finish. Seems a wee bit out of balance with a slightly excessive butterscotch flavor sneaking in.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Pours a hazy copper with a golden hue and white head. Smells of caramel, malts, alcohol and some fruit I think. Has a plain malty taste with a bitterness afterward. This was ok for me, have had better. I just revisited this and I really like the malt hop balance. I had the Sea Otter the second time around.

I was gonna save this... oh another day, but after just having their other amber ale I had to try this one too. My bottle was called Red Fox Amber Ale, but it sent me here. Theres a red fox on the bottle... not some drunk with a hat. Anyway... with a completely belligerent pour this made a pretty large head. Reddish brown body. Its a lot like their other one. Nut, roast and caramel come out in the aroma, mainly the first two. Its also hoppy with some earth. Almost identical to their other amber ale except in color and balance. If anything, I dont like the more bitter finish as much. It felt a little off balance, but otherwise this was another very nice amber ale.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Pours a lightly hazy amber with a dense khaki head. Somme light lacing. Smells of mild yet fruity hops. Taste is of fruity malt with strident hops cutting through the malt. Nice bitter finish. Mouth is crisp and aftertaste in the lingering low level hops. Rinse and repeat. Not complex, just tasty. Really drinkable amber with a decent hops profile. You wont find too many amber ales more enjoyable than this one.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Pours amber with little to no head. Hoppy aroma and hoppy taste. Bitter but pleasant. Lacks the depth of a great beer but still a solid amber.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Rich slightly hazy amber color, weak head, no lacing and a floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with some toasty malt but unbalanced to the hoppy side, medium bitter finish.
