COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Amber Ale is brewed with all American ingredients, showcasing a rich amber color with a pleasant malt sweetness on the front and enough hop body to balance the flavor all around for a crisp refreshing craft ale taste.

RichardW (1764) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
On tap at Cafe Tu Tu Tango, Orlando. Pours pretty flat, deep reddy-amber colour. Very reminiscent of an English bitter, slightly woody, with a late hop note that could have done with being a little more obvious.

SHIG (3982) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Can thanks to stephrocks: Poured a mahogany brown with a two finger beige head. Aroma is leafy malt and tobacco. Taste is a sweet toffee malt, it has a light hop bite that helps balance the sweetness.

BelgianBeerGal (3430) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Tallahassee TJ’s can. Slightly cloudy bronze color with a foamy khaki head that settles into a film. Aroma is sweet perfume with a hint of yeast. Flavor has a light hoppiness with pineapple fruitiness. Meh.

The aroma is malty and papery with grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a tiny head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall average.

Palidor19 (3076) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2015
Over cooked malts with a husky flavor, good looking color with a creamy white head. Low bitter, with enough character ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JFGrind (1918) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
Medium bitterness can not overcome the malt dough flavors. Wavemaker is an awesome name for an average Amber.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2015
Pedestrian as it gets but nothing offputting here. Would have liked a bit more from the hops, but seems like a decent gateway beer.

Draft sample. Dark amber body with a small beige head. Mostly doughy/malty with a bit of background hops. Not bad.
