New World Amber Ale - a no nonsense recipe that takes its character through a blend of ingredients sourced from New Zealand, Bamberg and Dublin. This vivacious Ale has recently won the “festival of beer” in the storehouse in Dublin. Do you we need to tell you anything new? Skip the rest and order yourself a mighty pint. We keep our house strain of top fermenting yeast at slightly cooler temperature to allow the maltiness from the bohemian and caramel malts to team up with the volatile hop aroma. Talk about hop we have four additions, all aroma hops from newer more juvenile breeds like Smaragd.

From Tap @ the Brewpup. The head is robust, the body amber-brown colored, a bit cloudy. The taste is fruity- amber-sweet. Interesting hoppy a bit sweet, and a bit bitter. Good aromatic and hoppy amber beer. 12/11/12/12/-/12

skortila (5239) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2011
On tap @ the brewpub. The aroma has malts, some caramel, citric hops. Hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with a medium, slight off-white head. The taste is light bitter, has some malty sweetness present, quite hoppy. Dry hoppy finish. Nice one.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft at the brewpub in Vienna. Pours a hazy, dark, brassy amber color with a small, fading head of smooth, beige tinted foam. Settling to a thin film, the head gives pronounced clumps and spots of patchy lacing to the glass. The nose is very hoppy for an amber, bordering on IPA level floral and citrus aromatics. Notes of grapefruit and wildflowers come to mind, brightening up a caramelized cereal grain and buttered bread malt base. Flavors mirror the nose, showing pithy citrus hops, dry grasses, and some pine resin, all over a base of baking sugar-glazed cereal and crusty bread. The palate is medium-light in body, balanced, and slightly papery, making it incredibly quaffable. Nice brew. Very reminiscent of some of the better American hoppy ambers, like Mac ’n’ Jack’s African Amber.

Draught at 1516: Amber color, huge creamy head. Flavor is refershing, light malty, full notes of aroma hops. Light bitter, light dry finish. Refreshing, nic hoppy but not to bitter brew.
