Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: indiapaleale on 10-29-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
