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.

[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.

Thanks for sharing, Skyview! Copper color with a thin head. Slight floral aroma. Grainy taste. Thin and only barely detectable malt flavors.

Stine (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2008
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Dull reddened orange. Wimpy aroma of old berries, concentrate apple juice, wet cardboard and brown rice. Earthy, mild, and lean. Lemon zest, pithy citrus, white bread, sugar, and some floral sagebrush hop presence in the mostly unnoticeable flavor; the effect of drinking a floral tea insufficiently steeped. Thin, bitter, light bodied palate with fairly low carbonation, leaving the loose flavor body hung to dry. No impressions at all from this one in any direction. Had this only a couple hours ago; if not for the notes it would be quite hard to remember what it was like. Thanks for sharing, Bob!

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orangey-amber body with a small, off-white head. Smell: Rather restrained nose with only minor notes of toasted grains and fruit. Taste: Faint, lightly sweet toasty caramel maltiness. Slight fruitiness. Very mild hop character and bitterness. Bittersweet finish. Meek from start to finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Somewhat watery. Drinkability: A good choice if, for whatever reason, you’re looking for a lite amber.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2008
This poured an amber color like it damn well should! The aroma is malty with some citrus and caramel. The flavor is hard to describe because not much is going on with it. Yummy crystal malts abound. Overall run of the mill amber for drinking and not thinking.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a grainy toasty pale malty nose. Body starts slightly grainy and pale malty sweet with a hint of earthy bittering hops. Finishes slightly drier with an earthy, bittersweet, crisp finish. A decent amber ale.

BCMike22 (80) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Poured into snifter glass. Light colored for a amber. Malts are slight, but a little bitter. A little tart, hint of a fruit flavor. Very drinkable, but not easily distinguishable from others. Good beer. Worth a drink for sure.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2008
A nice amber ale that hits on all cylinders except aroma. Could pick up slight grassy hops and a bit of caramel, but not very strong. Pour was a cloudy dirty orange with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was nice and hoppy. Strong grassy hops in the front with a solid caramel malt backbone. Perfect balance of bitter then sweet.
