Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Amber Ale is designed to start bright and lively from an abundance of Crystal Malts. We establish a strong contrast between front palate and back palate by adding generous amounts of Munich Malt, which provides a distinct toasty finish.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine April 2007.

The inspiring quotes on labels can get a bit too sappy, and organic beer seems to be all the rage now. It just feels like this is all market driven, though the proof is in the bottle, right? Contract-brewed by Shipyard Brewing Co., Portland, ME.

Spiderweb-like lace drops after each sip; slight chill haze from the rustic amber color. Thick, sweet malt aroma of toffee; a bit buttery on the back end. Just as smooth as it is creamy, with a solid medium body. Straight to the toasted malt with an underlying caramel tone throughout. Hop bitterness is there to tame the malt with a faint hint of tobacco. Clean all the way. Perhaps a ghost-like diacetyl in there, but nothing that gets in the way. Sweet, toasted malt keeps rolling on with a bready, biscuit flavor. Finishes semi-sweet, with a never-ending toasty graininess.

Toasty--that is for sure. This beer has some teeth; soft, but it clamps down on the taste buds. On par with the many non-organic Amber Ales out there. Try it against a sweet Italian-style turkey sausage with peppers and onions on a wheat hoagie roll.
