Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It's brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts. And we hop it with Mt. Hoods and Cascades. We're as proud of it today as we were back in '89. And over the years it's earned 14 Gold Medals. Not that we're keeping track or anything.

ABV 5.5% IBU 31"

Medium amber with a half inch of foamy dissipating head. Foamy lacing. A solid toasted malt scent, and the Flavors mirror the scent....malt forward. Full bodied for an ale. Solid but unremarkable.

Appearance:
Crystal clear and a very sexy amber color, almost no carbonation can be seen and its topped off with a nice thick fluffy tan head. The head is creamy and creates a tight layer of lacing around the glass.
Smell:
Hops and mild roasted malts, floral and spiced citrus come through to make a nice mixed aroma.
Taste:
Hoppy as it first hits your tongue, the taste then flows into a sweet grapefruit flavor followed up by a nice hop aftertaste.
Mouthfeel:
This is a nice medium bodies ale with plenty of carbonation despite the fact that you don't see any after or during the pour.
Overall:
Very well made and it goes down smooth, the hops are just right and the flavors are well balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Poured into a pint. Copper/amber in color. About one finger of head which is not retained for long.

Smell: Fruitcake, sweet, bread, hops, citrus. VERY good smell.

Taste: Wow. Maybe this is a honeymoon phase with the taste here, but This is fantastic! A perfect blend of malts, hops, sweet citrus flavors, fruit flavors. It's about as perfect as I could imagine this style of beer. Very impressed!

Feel: Very easy drinking. Very refreshing. Carbonation is on the high side, making it thirst quenching

Overall: Why have I never had this stuff before. Very, VERY impressed with this brew. I've been obsessed with RIS's and other stouts lately and wanted to explore a bit into lighter colored ale's. Glad I picked this one at random.
