COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Waves incorporates five different caramel malts to impart complexity, adding a little honey-like sweetness, as well as dark, roasted caramel flavors. To give it an aroma and finish that transports one to an orange grove, 21st Amendment’s brewers used All-American Centennial hops.

2011 GABF Gold Medal winner in the American Style Amber/Red Ale category.

Deep flavor with a hint of coffee accent. Overall dark brown in color. Would be good dinner beer to match a red steak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a bad amber. Pours a beautiful clear red with a light white head. Not much smell, slightly fruity. Taste hoppy upfront with a malty finish. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap at brewpub in downtown SF-June 2012-pours copper hue with a fizzy whtie head. nose of carmel, piney earthy hops. flavors have a very nice mild malt profile-sweet and crisp with some sugar cookie like qualities. lots of earthy hops in there as well. comes across more of an ESB with a sweeter malt profile. very clean ferment and more enjoyable than most ambers. For this style, this is awesome!

I was expecting something a little more balanced. Had a good nose but the palate was unbalanced for me... I was fighting a head cold when I visited... Still would try and buy again

A: The pour is amber in color, like you would expect, with a mild off-white head and some minimal lacing. S: Lots of citrus notes, primarily grapefruit and oranges. The caramel and bread notes round out the nose. T: I’m not sure where the grapefruit went, but there are certainly plenty of oranges. A good caramel, toffee, and sweet bread backbone. The bitterness is mild and the beer tends toward the sweet side of ambers. M: The body is medium with carbonation right in the middle of the road as well. D: A nice drinkable amber. I would have preferred some more bitterness, but it was good as is.
