Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

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.

Had a pint at Hobby Airport while waiting for a flight.

Barkeeps had been at Saint Arnold's Brewery the previous day and were stoked about their beers.

A - Amber, clear color, very minimal off-white head that recedes immediately, very little lacing.

S - Get some citrus, is a relatively clean and crisp nose.

T - Good balanced beer, get the citrus, slight malty character and maybe a bit of spice, leaves a crisp taste in your mouth.

M - medium bodied, medium carbonation.

O - A good session beer, could easily drink a few of these while chatting with friends.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: A nice am amber color, leaning on the brown side. Nice head, the beer has a very crisp look, defiantly makes you want to drink it.

Smell: A nice smell, somewhat toasty. A little hop character in the aroma as well, balanced nicely.

Taste: A good taste, very good projection of the smell. All of the flavors that I could pick up with my nose I can just as easily pick up with my tastebuds. Very drinkable, very good flavor.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, slightly intrudes on the flavor. I feel this beer's flavor is not enhanced by high carbonation, it would be better if it were smoother.

Overall: This was a very good beer, as person who has family in Houston it is nice to try all the beers from St. Arnold Brewery, and this is another good product. While I may prefer their IPA, I can see myself getting this again if I am down there.
