On a whim I stopped into a small boutique grocery store near Rittenhouse Square. (19th and Spruce, I think it's called Food and Friends) I was on a trek with my 6 month old son, in an effort to get out of the house after 2 feet of snow was dumped on the city. I was really looking for prune juice for my constipated son, but thought I'd check out the beer selection also. I got a 6 pack variety (3 for me... 3 wheat beers for the Mrs.) The American Amber Ale was one of my three.
The beer doesn't live up to its name... I like bitter beer... having never tried this beer, I thought it would be a little hoppier.
It is slightly hoppy with a light body - it's well carbonated - has the feeling of an american IPA but with less hop character.
I wasn't impressed. Maybe I'll try this again without Mac & Cheese.
