COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Owyhee Amber Ale is an easy drinking, amber beer for the masses. Brewed with 2-row barley, Munich, and crystal malts, this amber beer is a cleaner, crisper version of an ale reminiscent of an amber lager beer. Owyhee Amber is a true session beer as refreshing as a breath of air in the vast mountain range that it was named after.

Pours amber with a nice beige head and a faint roasted malt aroma. The flavor, too, is roasted malt with minimal hopping. Good enough to drink, but not exceptional.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Dark amber, somewhat hazy, moderate to largy frothy off-white head, bottle somewhat erupted when opening which made me believe it was infected but so far it doesn’t appear to be.   Lacing is fairly sticky.   Nose is somewhat of a mix between stale malt, wet paper, and cardboard.   I take back what I said about the infection.   Its not lactic, but it has hints that perhaps it may be past its prime.   Grainy oriented malt based flavor.   A little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are lacking a bit, but at least its not thin.   Finishes with a dirty malt flavor.   Not bad, but this one seems over the hill.   Would need to revisit.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Amber bodied with heavy carbonation bubbles feeding a luxurious, fluffy beige top. Toasted amber malt aromas with suitable fruity hop backdrop. A touch of sweet candi sugar, bubblegum, and toffee. A decent alt-bier like body with subdued, cold-conditioned tasting hops along with toasted malt and applewood notes. Some residual malt sweetness. A solid, toasty amber.

22. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a towering, fluffy patinum blonde head. Decent stringy lace showing on the sides on the way down. Nice big dark sweet brown bread nose with a little bit of yeasty spice knocking around. Creamy medium body, understated carb. Brown sugar, mint, and fusel alcohol on the mid-palate. Solventy. Not pleasant. Tangy, wrongish finish.

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pours a deep amber brown color with a caramel nutty smell. Taste like a slightly bitter and strong amber ale but overall okay. An amber ale I am glad I tried but nothing to be excited about.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Pours a deep amber with good head that has good retention. Smells like of fruity and I might be picking up a bit of diacetyl buttery aroma. Kind of a roasted coffee flavor with a slightly fruit finish. Medium carbonation with high mouthfeel.

boFNjackson (4131) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle... Poured amber with a thick, off-white head, nice retention. Aroma of tootsie rolls, caramel and cocoa malt. Mild hop bitterness up front with balancing cocoa malts and a grainy, bread-like finish. Caramel candy sweetness at the end too.

On tap at the 2009 NABA. Pours a rich caramel color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is rich caramel and light hops. The flavor is similar; rich caramel malts, light sweet flavors, and a small hop finish. Very quaffable and nice.
