BEER INFO

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our lightest in terms of alcohol comes in at 4.8% by volume so that malt can dominate the flavor profile. Caramel sweet malt all over the palate with a noticeable “jumping just over the barrier” citrus hop aroma. Surprisingly refreshing for such a malt driven ale. Truly an all season American Amber.

Malt dominates in this beer, dark amber/brown with beige creamy head. Aroma is caramel, sweet malt. Taste is similar, smooth and rich with nice silky mouthfeel. Nicely done.

Chill hazed red colored ale with a small tan to light brown colored head.

Smells hoppy and woody with lots of caramel and malt scent too. Toffee and citrus with a little chocolate cake scent.

Starts out malty and a little sweet. Hard water taste with a mild caramel flavor. Tasty but not super complex.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is a pretty good version of what you could call a middle of the road ale. Tasty and refreshing this is the sort of beer that goes with everything and is good for anytime of year.

Pours a somewhat murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and some herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is definitely drinkable but fairly basic for the style.

22 oz undated bottle poured a slightly hazy, deep-toned, orange-amber color. Above average head and lacing. Sweet caramel malt is the dominant aroma [3.75] and flavor. Some citrus hops too. Very good sweet/bitter balance. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a good amount of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Toasty with grainy malts. Moderate neutral malt sweetness. Simple, but pleasant.

3.5 T: Taste the same. Toasted malts is the focus with graininess and neutral sweetness next. Tasty.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and insanely smooth.

3.5 D: Standard, but solid amber. Good enough all around.
