American Amber / Red Ale |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A malt-accented amber ale which features a rich toastiness and a balanced hop flavor that lingers through to the finish. This wickedly smooth beer refreshes year ’round. Amber Road is brewed with pure, soft Maine water from Lake Auburn; as well as 10 different malt varieties, 3 different hop varieties and a clean, well attenuating, top-fermenting American ale yeast. The beer is then cold conditioned for a smooth, clean and crisp flavor. Drink up!

12 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a one finger head that has reduced into a thin layer and left lacing on the glass. A nice amber red like the name with great clarity and plenty of carbonation coming up through all of the glass.

Smell: Toasted bready malts, slight caramel sweetness too.

Taste: toasted bready malts, roasted nuts, a little fruitiness, and slight caramel.

Mouthfeel: silky smooth, medium boadied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and for the most part easy to drink.

Overall: Another nice addition to their family of beers. Wish I tried this back in November on cask, but still happy to have tried it in the can numerous times.

Serving type: can

12 oz. can poured into a Libby glass.

Appearance: Pours a nice amber color with a big off-white head that sticks around for a good while. Lacing between moderate and heavy.

Smell: Aromas of toffee, malt, toast and some hops.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, and it's quite good. It's very malt and toffee heavy. Some hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Pretty good heft for an amber ale. Easy on the palate.

Overall: Very nice red ale. I love a good red ale, and this is a very good one - nice balance of malt flavors and toffee notes. I've been told by my friendly neighborhood store manager that this beer will soon be discontinued - a bummer, because it's a really solid offering.
