COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We decided to rebel against the status quo when we created our amber. We took a Belgian Abbey Single, upped the ABV, added some rye malt, and created a complex, yet very easy drinking, ale. Grab a sample and let us know what you think.

Aromas of sweet breads, sweet candy, and a hint of plum. Amber orange in color, white head is thin. Sweet malt hits you first. Sweet candied fruit is next. Bitterness is dry and one dimensional. Mouthfeel is watery, and finsihes with an even bitterness. Interesting style...average beer.

Aroma is English malts, light Belgian yeast and a hint of banana cream/vanilla. The flavor is fruit/berries, lemon/citrus, malts, bananas and a tart finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Bottle to shaker. Certainty not what I was expecting from the description, although to be fair i wasn?t sure what to expect. Copper orange pour. Creamy head. Clean and clear. Typical American amber profile with just a bit more bitterness. Nice.

The Victorian getup on the sheep, the word "Kent" in the title and amber ale underneath made me expecting some form of ESB or ordinary bitter. Oddly, it tastes pretty much like an American amber and the brewery claims it’s some sort of twist on a Belgian ale. It is actually not bad tasting at all but I do find many things to be quite strange about how this beer was presented. Oh well, I am here to drink it, not analyze it... Or, more accurately, I am here to analyze it so here we go. It’s a very cloudy amber color w/ a thin head and a decent amount of lace. The nose is subdued spice and a general ale-like fruitiness. Definitely, there is some yeastiness going on here but it is not nearly as pungent as I’d expect from a Belgian. Flavor is a bit sweet w/o quite being cloying w/ a good amount of caramel and toffee notes as well. I do find to be a bit sticky for a lighter beer but that really isn’t the end of the world in this case. I am not sure what style I would call this if it was presented to me in a glass w/ no description. It is an OK beer though so I can get behind it.

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Light amber colored beer with a white head. Banana, apple, and some tart berries on the nose. Bread, toast, and a bit of popcorn. Tastes mostly just sweet and malty and grainy. Some popcorn, bread, and a touch of toast. Soap, some banana, and a bit of apple sauce. Weird.

Real nice. More like a Belgian. Rye really comes through. Generally not much a fan of ambers but this guy’s a bit different.

Malty flavor. Light body with amber color. Smooth texture with abrupt finish.

This one poured out as an opaque amber color with a short lived head. The malt had a bready-nutty thing going on, due to the rye. The hops were of an herbal nature to counter the malt package. Not my favorite, but adequate as a session brew.

Mid amber color. Thin white head. Light aroma, citrus. Taste is light malt, some fruit, and orange rind. The taste is not well defined, very heavy on that rind flavor. Bitter finish. May have been served too cold from the tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
