Pretty standard looking red pour, average head, not much if any lacing. Aroma was somewhat woody, irish malt feel.

Taste, hops kept down, a little more robust irish moss feel to it than Killians. Not the greatest off flavor bitterness, can't figure where it came from, unless they use a small amount of high alpha acid hops. Either way, not my favorite Weinhards beer by any stretch of the imagination. A little caramel thrown in there.

Henry Weinhardt's ... used to be, and perhaps still, is the best brew for the price around. It's been a while since I've seen more than a bottle here and there.

Pours a reddish amber. Smells like ... malt. Not much aroma to it, truthfully. Tastes like ... basically, malt. Maybe a bit of earthy/hoppiness to it. But, it's a fairly straight forward malty amber. Quenching, and a decently palatable mouthfeel.

This beer pours a pale amber color with a minimal head. Aroma is slight but that of malt and citrusy hops but the aroma is dominated by that "cheap beer" taste. I don't know if it's an adjunct I'm smelling here or an ester but it doesn't smell good, like how a 40 oz smells. Taste is bland, a little malt a little hop, probably cascade. Wimpy mouthfeel, drinkablity is ok, you could session these beers, but why?

Appearance is the true amber color with orange and red tint. The head is a subtle cream with caramel aroma. Smell is of caramel and malts with a tone of hops bringing up the rear. The taste is not bad for this cheap of an amber. Taste is of caramel malts with the hops kicking in, feels full and crisp in the mouth. A very drinkable amber than won't put a damper in your pocket money.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

this one pours out a semi-clear rust brown color. a lively fizzy head dies away in about thirty seconds. no real lace to speak of. carbonation dies off with the head. sweet caramel malted tastes are almost candy like. a snap of some cascade hops add some more bold taste. a seemingly thick and oily sweet mouthfeel makes it all slide down too well. this beer seems flat in body and mind. not a beer i would recommend or have again.

Surprisingly i actually like this beer..its the best beer that Weinhards have to offer and its pretty cheap too ,BONUS!
This is a good beer to have around if your having a BBQ and inviting the neighbours..its certainlly better than the macro swill ( its regional) and it was opne of the beers that turned me towards trying micros...so if you see it outside Oregon ..giove it a go..not a bad amber.

From time-to-time, every beer snob runs into a bit of financial trouble and cannot drink the best stuff. But, for a beer that costs under $5 a six-pack, Henery's Amber Ale is not that bad of a choice. It has a nice amber appearance and a decent malty taste. I wouldn't want to drink this stuff all the time, but it's something I would keep in the refridgerator for guests.
