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.

I wonder where the name comes from? Bomber - one of our campfire beers in the Hoh Rainforest. Pours clear copper with a pale orange head. Light body and medium carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel taste, dry finish. Refreshing after a long and soggy day of hiking, but nothing about this beer really stood out for me.

From a 22 oz bottle this poured a very clear red amber with an attractive rocky white head and good lacing. The aroma was caramel malts with some floral and pine hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly malts but there are some hops there. Finish is lightly bitter. Good for an amber.

Pours a medium amber with a decent head. Aroma is actually of chocolate and hops. Powdered chocolate, but chocolate nevertheless. Strange, but cool. Flavor is malty on the roof of my mouth and only slightly hoppy elsewhere. There’s not much flavor other than the chocolatey malt. Mouthfeel is good, nice carbonation with the medium body. Overall, fair to good.

2009 Bottle - Pours reddish amber with a medium off white head...aroma is a little dirty metal, a little weak grain, toasty malt...flavour is nicely balanced rough grain and caramel malt...a little thin on the finish, but totally beat my expectations...very drinkable...

A little bit of a caramel aroma. What a great surprise. This isn’t real malty, but no too hoppy either. It has a great light flavor, but enough caramel bite to it that it’s not at all boring. Great stuff. One of my favorites for the style.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Bottle from BevMo: Slight stench in the aroma of dirty laundry and bland malt which I thought smelled similar to fat tire ale. The appearance is a hazy red color with a large pillow of foam. Flavor is boring and bland with only a minor tasting of caramelized malt.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Pours with a small, off-white head over a hazy light amber body. Some lace. Aroma of light manure, light hops, grain, cereal, and caramel. Taste is caramel, lightly fruity with citrus hops, and toast. A bit fizzy and water like on the tongue.

BuckeyeBoy (2607) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 1, 2008
22oz Bottle pours out a amber topped with a sand head. Aroma of malts and light sweetness. Tast more of the sweetness and malts a little hop on it.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma with earthy grain. More caramel malt in the taste. A nice roasted malt, honey, and earthy, pine hop flavors blend well. Bitter metallic finish detracts a little.

Poured from bomber a caramel-amber with large off-white head. Aroma is roasted grain and powdered cocoa. Flavor begins with a subtle sweetness with bittersweet chocolate and quickly drys out with roasted grain, caramel and malt ending in a somewhat tart finish. There is a smoothness throughout the palate running from lightly sweet to dry tart. Overall nice flavors and decent beer but rather over-priced for what’s here.
