12 ounce single bottle purchased for $1.99 from Total Wine and More in Union...
An aggressive and thorough pour yielded a full-sized frothy and foamy head which displayed impressive staying power before slowly dissipating and leaving a generous amount of lacing...
Smell was on-point and accurate for an American Amber, with a nice balance of hops and malts rounded off with a touch of vanilla and a sprinkle of grapefruit...
Taste strongly mirrored the aroma, bursting with caramel-cream and candy flavors, amber red nuances, hops, malts, vanilla, grapefruit, yeast, grain, and a noticeable creamy, frosty taste...
Another top-notch sample from Anderson Valley...
Although this is not the best representation of the style that I've come across, it is certainly up there and full of flavor, quality and style...
Good, creamy, rich, and thick mouthfeel dominate this one, with an easy level of drinkabilty with no observable hints of any alcohol and pure, rich, quality flavors...

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.

Appearance: Clear deep copper in color, with a moderate, dense, with medium-sized, dense off-white head, modest carbonation, and thick, glass-coating lace.
Aroma: Light caramel vies with apple rind, and a moderate, slightly earthy hop presence.
Taste: Opens with prominent toasted and caramel malts. As the taste progresses, spicy hops begin to assert themselves, and a faint note of alcohol appears as well. Finishes with a lingering, spicy hop note and caramel and toasted hops as a backdrop.
Mouth feel: Smooth and soft, fairly full, with only slight carbonation noted.
Drinkability/notes: Solid and very well-crafted, a pleasing and very drinkable red ale.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, sealed with a pry-off crown. Served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
