Notes/Commercial Description:
This first beer from Newport Storm continues to be one of its most popular. The goal was to create a flavorful ale where delicate malt and hop flavor were in perfect balance. To meet this goal, the brewing crew uses North American crystal malt for color and sweetness, and Munich Malt for body and mouthfeel. The perfect amount of spicy Tettenang hops are added for flavor and aroma which compliment the bittering properties of the Magnum hops to round out this session brew.

The beer poured nicely but was a little cloudy which was unexpected for an Amber Ale. It smelled okay with a yeasty bread smell and some sweetness. The taste was atrocious however with a very bad oily aftertaste. I wasn’t sure if I was going to finish this beer or not. Would not recommend and it paints a bad light of the brewery.

12oz bottle, day 5 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent Calendar, and my first brew from Rhode Island. Is this a local competitor to Pawtucket Patriot Ale? Nonsensical ramblings concerning humor appear under the cap.

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium bronzed amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and weakly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a few decent examples of vibrant sea plume lace around the glass as it quickly dissolves.

It smells of bready, yeasty, and somewhat pastry-like caramel malt, sugary grainy breakfast cereal - almost Corn Pops, almost not - a hollow muddled tropical citrus fruitiness, a hint of pine resin, and further, yet sill understated floral, earthy hops. The taste is more crackery, slightly biscuity pale and caramel malt - still rather processed cereal-like - some astringent citrus and pine bitterness, both removed of the flavour side of their essence, stale lemon, and earthy, musty hops.

The carbonation is average, but kind of aggressively frothy at times, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and generally smooth, a certain hard water metallic character trying to nudge its way in. It finishes leaning toward the dry side, as the cereal cereal sheds the last of the sweet malt, and the hops carry on with their blind, unfocused bitterness.

An agreeable enough amber ale, the bar being what it is for this style. Malty, in a more or less ironically dry sense, and strangely bitter, like it may not have been wholly intended. At any rate, this Hurricane is of a very academic threat category to me (we don't get them up here, so I have no frame of reference), and my skirt is still steadfastly in place.
