Obviously an amber hued beer. Decent white head with little laces. Smells and tastes of sweet maltiness, biscuits, caramel, just a wee hint of chocolate, hops that counteract the malt. Decent brew, pretty easy to put down. Wouldn't be opposed to buying it again.

Rouge American Amber Ale has a thin (shelf glass), cream-colored head, a very hazy, deep amber appearance, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, medium-roasted barley malt, medium-roast coffee, citrus, and hop resin. Taste is of those elements, but of tea, rather than coffee. The hop bitterness is noticeable, but not harsh. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Rouge American Amber Ale finishes semi-dry and easy going. Overall, it’s one to check out.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy copper amber color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange zest, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of hop and malt flavors; with a nice malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
