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!

3.1/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

A bit hazy reddish brown amber body, with a nice light creamy off white and tan head. Forms about three fingers in size with some nice retention and some spider like lacing.

Nose is a soft toasty malt bill, a good malt sweetness to this also. A nice classic chewy bread sense. Very solid smelling amber.

Palate hits with a very watery body. Mouthfeel hints at malt density but doesn't carry over this lifeless feel. Finish comes and goes very quickly with a mild hop presence, but also there's even a very odd carbonation to this, with a strange odd bitter.

Overall this isn't really getting the job done.
