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"

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.

A- Clear bright amber with a one finger white head that leaves behind some lacing.

S- Mild sweet caramel notes along with clean hop aroma.

T- Malty upfront with a grainy sweetness. The hop flavors a very mild and clean. There is a slight bitterness throughout that fades quickly.

M- Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O- Very easy drinking and highly enjoyable. Nothing about the beer is outstanding, but nothing about it is bad either. A solid American Amber.
