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.

Coastal Extreme Brewing's Amber Ale was a sample of a BOTM Club my lovely wife surprised me with at Christmas last.
Their other entry that arrived was Newport Storm India Point Ale, which is top rate, outstanding!!!!
I chose to critique this Amber Ale because, it is a flagship standard for the brewer but is nothing special.. Very MOR and had it not been for the IPA, I would not consider other entries from this East Coast Brewery.. I would definitely try others from Coastal, but NOT on the strength of this entry..

s. - Smell of Honey and nuts

t. - reminded me of a brown, with a nutty taste. Honey also detected

m - Lacks carbonation, gritty

o - This beer is OK, but do not think I will go back to it anytime soon.

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.
