American Amber / Red Ale |  7.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

16.9 oz bottle into snifter. bottled on 11.04.12.

A: deep copper color. pretty clear. slightly reddish white head. retention is reasonable with some lacing.

S: caramel and apricots. fruity and earthy. if i had to guess i would say cascade hops were used. a really hoppy nose.

T: burnt raisins and burnt caramel flavors. a bitterness is there, but it is hard to decipher if it is from the hops or the cara malts. they linger especially towards the finish. brown sugar and tobacco as well. a bitter linger.

M: the carb is good, well executed bottle conditioning. works well here. medium bodied.

D: some serious complexity on the body. much richer than your typical hoppy amber. the malt component is certainly the bigger driver of flavor than the hops. however it is totally reverse on the nose. much more floral on the nose than caramel/malty aromas.

Another great beer from Maine Beer Company. As usual, this beer is dry rather than sweet, crisp, and has a nice hoppy profile without reliance on big citrus notes. Very balanced with a long bitterness, and enough very dry malt to sustain the piney and herbal hops. A lighter colored amber than many, and the malt is downplayed in favor of the hops. Delicious!
