COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Bottled. A murky amber beer with a medium orange head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with strong notes of caramel and lesser notes of metal, while the flavor is sweet malty again with strong notes of caramel, but lesser notes of berries. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

malrubius (1765) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2008
#300. 12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Amber with lasting head and lace and flaoters, even though I left half an inch in the bottle. Very mild aroma of hop and light alcohol. Mild caramel and fruit and nut with medium bitterness. Fairly dry. Medium body and carb. Decent enough. Iím not much of an amber fan. A little hoppy for the style.

This amber has a nice note of hops its not bells best but worthy of the name. Fruit flavor is a little weak but the fulfilling palate of hops makes up for it.

Clear dark amber with a good off-white head. Aroma has a faint woody character coupled with amber malt (obviously). Flavor includes wood, nuts, and roasted malt. Good medium body; smooth with light carbonation. Overall: poundable and without flaw. Scratch that, a bit of a metallic flavor comes out as it warms, but still a fine brew.

poured into a pilsner glass (i like to stuff my nose in there), out of a 12oz bottle. aroma was of yeast and citrus, not very strong. came out with a decent 1 finger head with great retention and medium lacing. i picked up mostly citrus and an underbelly of malt. mouthfeel was average, carbonation was kind of heavy, but otherwise it was enjoyable. the finish was unexpected, built strong but then fell flat. regardless iíd drink another one, a decent brew.

Not bad, but kind of boring. This style isnít too wild in general, but Iím kind of pissed off I spent so much money on this six pack. Could be much worse though as it is certainly drinkable and quite good, but nothing I would buy on a regular basis and nothing that overly impressed me.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Caramelized malts galore make up most of this Amber Aleís flavour profile, for a well executed but infinitely linear recipe.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy, dull amber.
-There are so many caramel malt flavours here, the flavour profile becomes reminiscent of a diluted barley wine.
-Light fruitiness comes from the malts.
-Citrusy hops are really not important; this is not really balanced.
-The finish is storyless; just more of the same.

Bottle.

Draught at TND: Very slight aroma of malt. Poured amber/orange in color with a large, loose, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Very sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, light Earth, light hops, and light chestnut. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Earth and malt finish. A quality amber ale.
