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.

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.

Brief write-up. No, this one isnít very interesting, but itís drinkable and goes with lunch/dinner quite well. I could have used more hoppiness, though. Fat Tire fans will love it.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a bunch of micro floaties. Small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, not much else. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, nondescript. Medium body.

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - had this one a couple days ago and frankly, I can remember it. Not really a ringing endorsement.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Golden-orange color with a yeasty haze that sticks around; light, eggshell head, slightly creamy and quickly receding to a small collar. Aroma is kind of mild, there isnít much to it. Some biscuits, bread, and lightly toasted malt with a touch of mildly leafy and lightly spices hops. Touch of pine, even? Taste is equally mild... Mostly malty, toasted bread, light caramel even with some hops that seem of the English persuasion; leafy & earthy with a delicate spice to them. Touch of apple skin in the finish, though itís mostly made of malt. Not a bad sipper. Kind of bland, but still a decent, relaxing drink.

Realizing that I am not as much an amber fan as I thought I was. Solid brew from a fantastic brewery.

Pour is cloudy amber orange with a nice foamy white head. Aroma ensembles fresh baked bread and citrus. Taste is slightly bitter and breads with a smooth finish that leaves a strong bitterness. As far as ambers, I have certainly had better.

Bottle. Clear light brown. Carmel up front, nothing special but decent. Clean mouthfeel.
