American Amber / Red Ale |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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"

4.33/5  rDev +16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz brown with a "enjoy by" date clearly marked.

Appearance: Dark reddish amber with a light tan lace.

Smell: Mild fruity esters, toasted malt and hints of fruity/citric hop.

Taste: Crisp and smooth with a moderately full mouthfeel. Lots of malt on the palate with a pungent fruity alcoholic ester and spicy/citric hop character. Hop bitterness is merely just enough with more flavour middle to end. Little bit of fat chewy caramel malt with a drying chocolate which gives a cookie like malt flavour. Finishes off with a drying grain, hop leaf and a touch of residual sweetness.

Notes: A big and impressive Amber Ale ... All American Micro Style. One of the best Amber Ales to come out of the PNW.

2.3/5  rDev -38.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Not much aroma. Pretty bitter ... Overhopped for my taste. Presents well with a nice amber color and nice head.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]
