Notes / Commercial Description:
Saint Arnold Amber Ale is the brewery's flagship product and first official brew. A well balanced, full flavored, amber ale, it has a rich, malty body with a pleasant caramel character derived from a specialty Caravienne malt. A complex hop aroma, with a hint of floral and citrus comes from a combination of Cascades and Liberty hops. It has a rich, creamy head with a fine lace. The light fruitiness, characteristic of ales, is derived from a proprietary yeast strain.

I prefer IPAs, but not bad for an Amber Ale!

Very solid amber ale. Very drinkable. Good mouthfeel. I'm not sure why it has such a low rating. I would have again and enjoy the beer on warm days when I don't want something super light.

My favorite hands down. I've drank it from a glass but mostly from the bottle. Very balanced, just when you think it's sweet some hops come in. The ABV on the one's I get say 6.2, it seems really strong. If I drink more than a 6-pack I'm pretty hammered. It looks more brown than amber to me, clear with slightly brown foam. Average carbonation. I just wish more restaurants carried it...........

Love that they serve this in the KLM Crown Lounge at IAH. I've had it many times here but always forgot to do a review. I'm kind of going off of memory and I'll update this again when I have another one.

Look: Clear, light amber with a medium amount of head.

Smell: Definitely very biscuity/crackery but with also a good helping of herbal hops.

Taste: Very bready with herbal hops and quite a kick of bitterness. Can be described as malty but hoppy, in between a lager and a pale ale. Not as toasty as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but quite bready and maybe buttery.

Feel: Clean, bubbly, but also creamy. To be honest good texture but the bitterness is a bit biting.

Overall: It's good, and I'm quite happy that they offer this as complimentary alcohol in an airport lounge. Saint Arnold is my favorite Houston brewery because even if they are a bit conventional they do a solid job and have a good bready flavor going for them. Definitely good enough to be a staple beer around Houston.
