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.

Bomber from Hollingshead Deli; Nose of light citrus and piney hops mixed with caramel maltiness; hazy amber with a medium off-white head; flavor is hop bitterness and more light hop bitterness witha malty caramel background; finish is hop bitterness. Much more hoppy than most ambers.

Bottle. Ruby amber beer with a nice dark-cream colored head. Malty, light citrus aroma. Caramel malt flavor with light chocolate and citrus. Balanced, but chocolate and citrus clash a bit. Medium bodied. Lingering caramel, nuttiness, and light citrus.

Aroma is a bit cider-like. Pours deep amber with a very large persistent off-white head. Good amount of lacing. Taste is hoppy for an amber ale. Enough rich malts to almost balance the hops. Hops are somewhat citrus in character and overall this brew is quite crisp for the style. From a 22 ounce bottle, label says bottle conditioned. One of the most forward Ambers I’ve had. Maybe into APA territory which suits me fine. Good value at $2.99 US for the bomber.

bomber..gushes out as soon as cap is removed. After the initial gush ,I managed to get it in my mug, dark golden, large creamy off -white head, furious carbonation swirling around below. Nice enough aroma, of citric hopping and pine. Difering from previous reviewers i found the intial taste quite malty in a toffeeish way, semi-sweet, in my bottle the hops are well under control and only really assert near te end. Palate is weird, its very well carbonanted, but not thin and spritzerlike. After the carbonantion dies down the finish is smooth. In comparison to others, i found this a niceenough Amber, well drinkable ( maybe my bottle was "off" and that strangely improved things!).

unclemattie (4131) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
22oz bottle. Amber color. Aroma of piney hops and some malt. Flavor is lacking some malt character, big bitterness is to much for the balance. Could be better.

Thanks to Skyview. Copper pour with off white head. Aroma of light fruit, florala and caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt with the florals and some earthiness.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2008
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from LiquidSolutions.biz. Pours a semi-clear caramel amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thing off-white ring. Aroma of dry caramel malt, a touch of iced tea and grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a powdery caramel and toffee malt flavor. Finish is slightly dry, a little gritty texture with a thin caramel aftertaste that quickly disappears. An average amber ale at best.

[bottle] shared by skyview. Poured copper with a small off white head. The flavor matched the aroma and was moderately hoppy with caramel and toffee malt flavors. Fairly hoppy finish.
