Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly known as Dark Horse Amber Ale

While the malt and hops give this beer an amazing copper color, medium body, and a smooth mouth feel; it’s the yeast that sets this one apart from other amber ales. Inspired by Belgium's beer, women and mussels we thought it would be cool to give our Amber a little Belgian touch. We accomplish this by using an "almost Belgian" yeast strain producing similar esters and flavors commonly found in more traditional Belgian beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - amber hue with a big head - really no head retention or lacing to speak of.

S - Yeast aroma, bread, biscuits, malts.

T - Huge yeasty flavor somewhat balanced by some malts. Medium bodied and really easy to drink.

O - This drinks my like a hefeweizen than an amber and for that reason I will probably not try it again.
