The Amish Four Grain poured an amber/orange color with a thin but consistent head. Thin lacing lined the glass. The smell was of distinct, sharp hops and a rather strong fruity presence. True to its name, the taste had hints of grain and a rich, layered effect of sweet malt. I even noticed a smooth, somewhat smoky taste at the end, a testament to the rather full and complex ale. The mouthfeel was very smooth and full, somewhat unexpected for this style. The anticipated bite some pale ales deliver was also absent, making this a fine mellow brew. Bitter enough for my taste, yet sweet, smooth and filling, this is an interesting and refreshing ale.

Pours a copper ruby tone well more like amber and a nice sized cream colored head sitting atop the beer speckled light lacing all down the sides of my glass. Aroma has a suprising alcohol infused with fruit to it, very nice. Well, the flavor at first still cold was extremely bitter and harsh, but as it warmed it mellows out into some grainy toasted mild like nut finish and a fruit tone all there not bad at all. Mouthfeel is a little thin and lacking any real texture to it, but the drinkability still holds up fairly well for me. I enjoyed this beer as a sipper while doing some homework not bad.

This beer poured out a bright and clear orange amber color and had a nice foamy head. Very appealing aromas – sweet malt and a floral hop presence. The taste was light and fruity with a touch of hop bitterness. Also some sour malt and yeasty flavors there with the grassy/floral hops coming through in the finish. A light to medium bodied beer, this one is very easy to drink. A very enjoyable beer that easily became a favorite of mine.

The Amish is a pretty popular beer and the hoppiest product LBC put out until the Pils came on. (They didn't call it Lancaster Malt Brewing for nothin'). When this ale is put on the cask, it's a whole different story. The warmer temperature and softening effect of the hand pump make this a really neat beer.

A clear, deep-copper colored body is capped by a creamy ivory head. It's retention is fair before it drops to a creamy collar and whispy surface covering. There's not much in the nose other than a touch of fruitiness and some mild malt. The body is medium; and it combines with a fine, moderate carbonation leaving it creamy and smooth in the mouth. The flavor displays a rich maltiness that includes some "spicy" rye character; a bit of soft wheat; some floral/grassy hops, and a solid backing bitterness. It really needs to warm a bit to let it's full character come out, but once it does it's quite interesting. It appears very basic at first, but there are lots of tiny nuances that keep it interesting. It finishes dry with a touch of spice. Worth trying.

As it poured into the glass the color was a nice copper in color. The head was pretty full with a color of a off white. And the lace seemed pretty nice. The aroma was of hops and as the name stated grain (some rye, and wheat bread), also some fruit was present and malt. The taste was hoppy with notes of grain (rye, oat, wheat bread), malt and some citrus. The end finish nice and clean, what I would expect from this beer and its name. A good beer, I would have again
