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.

Very disappointing, especially since this is my 1300th beer. It tastes really bad. Maybe I just have a bad bottle? Or maybe Amber Ale’s are just not my thing. I would love to try something else from Beer Valley.

"not bad, not a standout. Crystal malts impart a nice enough aroma and a sweetness that is toffee like. hops are a little on the tame side, making this a tasty, but ultimately average and forgettable."

Decent amber ale. cloudy amber with small creamy beige head. Mild malty aroma, more malt in the taste, with dry finish. Just OK, nothing special.

hopdog (9327) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2012
22oz bottle. Poured a hazy deeper golden, almost amber, with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toast, caramel, some breadiness - all on the softer side. Tastes of the same.

Bomber pours deep copper with gold edges and light tan head. The aroma is modest in strength and offers up roasted malts and a bit of sweet nuttiness. The taste follows suit with a good load of malt sweetness and malt nuttiness as well as a thin layer of roasted malts. Well off in the background I get murmurs of earthiness and spicy hops too. The beer seems to be at odds with itself. Kind of muddled.
