Bottle. Poured out a light, cloudy brown, with just some hints of red and orange, with a medium tan head. Lots of malt with just a bit of hops on the aroma, possibly a little citrus and tea there also. Full bodied and complex on the palate. The flavor was malty with some refreshing lemon and tea leaf flavors, and bitter hops on the finish. Great beer for watching football. I will buy more of these.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker glass. It has a pretty, almost chestnut brown color with a cream-colored head that mostly diminishes. Very nice lacing, though. Initial nosing reveals light herbal hop aromas that give way to maltyness (sp?). The tase is simple but good, very clean with a pleasant hop finish. I’d recommend trying (at least) one of these.

Decent balance, full flavor, can taste both the hops and malt, decent bitter finish. Not bad, but all ambers taste fairly simimlar to me.

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 (19403) - 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.

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. There’s 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. It’s a lot like their other one. Nut, roast and caramel come out in the aroma, mainly the first two. It’s also hoppy with some earth. Almost identical to their other amber ale except in color and balance. If anything, I don’t like the more bitter finish as much. It felt a little off balance, but otherwise this was another very nice amber ale.
