St. Arnold Amber pours out of its bottle with a golden/tan color and a nose that showcases both caramel malt and hop highlights. There is virtually no head of foam and what little there is disappears in less than one minute, leaving behind some light lacing.
This beer has a pleasant taste that emphasizes caramel malt up front followed by toasted malt in the middle and then a slightly grapefruit/ floral hop taste in the finish. The hops assert themselves, but in a subtle way, leading to a dry but pleasantly hoppy aftertaste.
St. Arnold Amber is a beer intended to satisfy a wide range of tastes. It offers enough real beer flavor and character to keep the beer connoisseurs happy but with enough lightness and subtlety to satisfy those who dont normally drink craft ales. It offers perfect clarity and while it is a little lighter than I generally prefer, I admire the brewing team at St. Arnold for making a product with just the right amount of ingredients and craftsmanship to satisfy every type of beer drinker.
