Love Anderson Valley Brewing Company, really enjoy there IPA and Oatmeal stout. Random Place though for a Brewery in Little Booneville, CA but its worth the drive. Anyways bought this 22oz Bomber from my local market.
A-Pours a really Nice golden copper color with nice active carbonation leading to a frothy sticky off white head. Overall looks delicious.
s-Fruity spiciness, earthy with hints of sweet malts. Has a unusual unexpected spice aroma that i cant pin point. Hints of allspice come to mind, But its inviting never the less.
T-Earthy tea like spiciness, with a nice sweet malt backbone. But really just stops there. I was expecting something more up front but its fairly mellow, not what I expected from how the beer initially smelled like. There is a nice fruitiness to the beer in which the malts keep in check. Hop bitterness is minimal but present toward the end of your sip. Overall good balance, I could see myself drinking a few of theses, I saw some available in cans as well might give that a try.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.
Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.
Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.
Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.
This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.
