Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 12-02-2001

"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.

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.

Poured a clear amber body with a two finger white head that slowly receded leaving abundant lacing down the glass. Quite the nice looking amber ale. Scents of rich, malty, fruity esters, low levels of nuttiness and caramel aromas and an earthy hoppy and yeasty presence. Overall impression of aroma is of a very rich and malty bouquet with enough of a hop presence to provide a hint of balance. Quite nice. Flavor begins malty sweet, with heavy notes of caramel, sweet, bready malt and very light bitterness. This moves into a little bit more bitter middle with nutty malt, sweet caramel, light fruity esters and light toasted malt. The finish is malty sweet, with moderate toasted, nutty malt, light caramel, bready and biscuit-like malt with a medium-light bitterness. Aftertaste is nutty and toasted malt with a light breadiness and bitterness. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a pretty good amber ale that is quite rich and malty, but balanced. Rather well done. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with heavy carbonation and a smooth, rich feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a nice session ale that is quite nice. Overall this is a pleasant little malty amber ale. It smells and tastes quite rich and pleasant and feels smooth and sessionable. A nice, though not amazing, ale.

Excellent micro-style Amber Ale out of the Pacific Northwest.

A: Caramel, copper colored with minimal head.

S: English toffee, malt, caramel, fruit.

T: Crisp and refreshing. Medium mouthfeel, with a sweet but not overwhelming yeasty caramel and a fruit/floral finish with a mild hop.

O: One of my favorite Amber's, an excellent sessionable, year-round brew.
