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.

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.

Poured from a longneck into a shaker. A moderate pour produces a one inch sticky, creamy-white head. The beer is a ruddy amber with moderate carbonation. A very attractive beer.

Light fruity notes and just a touch of floral hop notes in the aroma. The malt flavor is fairly complex, with light notes of caramel, toffee, raisin and plum; maybe a little sweet tobacco as well. A good deal of perceived sweetness is balanced by the earthy bitterness of the hops.

This is an excellent example of this style and an old favorite of mine. I bought a six pack of this on sale for $6.19. It has a "best before" date of November 3, 2014, a little over two months from now.
