BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coastal Extreme Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This first beer from Newport Storm continues to be one of its most popular. The goal was to create a flavorful ale where delicate malt and hop flavor were in perfect balance. To meet this goal, the brewing crew uses North American crystal malt for color and sweetness, and Munich Malt for body and mouthfeel. The perfect amount of spicy Tettenang hops are added for flavor and aroma which compliment the bittering properties of the Magnum hops to round out this session brew.

I really don't like Newport Storm. I'd rather have Dos Equis Amber in a restaurant, and those are usually the choices in places in RI that have Newport Storm on tap.They do events around Newport,and seem like nice people but they don't draw a craft beer audience.No local craft beer fans want to drink this beer.

Not great. Part of my beer of the month club. Let's just say Wisconsin breweries do a much better job with ambers.
