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.

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

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Pours amber with a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime and sticky lacing finally reduce to a lasting creamy spattered canopy. Solid aromas of salty baked biscuits. Nice! Medium nectar w/ good carbonation and a nice creamy texture. A big malty backbone supports a defined piney hop component. Nuances of biscuits, leather, cocoa, and citrus rind. The actual flavor intesity is rather mild giving this brew a very mellow nature. The finish has lingering piney resin on it and a persistant baked biscuit goinís onís. Overall: The complexities are subtle but present and the beer drinks good. I keep thinking about my grandmas biscuits. Sonny ?

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2007
From a 22oz. bottle poured a bright copper-amber body. Big fluffy white head that dissipated to a small creamy top with magnificent snowy lacing. Nose of citrus piny hops and robust sharp malts. Watery but carbonated mouth feel with a nice hoppy, grapefruity finish. Tangy, mildly tart, and big bitter finish. Really nice!

spikester (603) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2008
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 Iíve had. Maybe into APA territory which suits me fine. Good value at $2.99 US for the bomber.

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 14, 2008
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.

boFNjackson (4099) - 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.

LinusStick (2814) - 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.
