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.

Medium bitterness can not overcome the malt dough flavors. Wavemaker is an awesome name for an average Amber.

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.

Having this via draft. Looks like a nice dark amber. Medium malty...almost zero hop flavor. Its fine.

TXBadger (1731) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours a clear copper orange color with off-white head. Citrus, caramel malt, and a hint of pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt. Decent amber style ale.

DocJitsu (1152) - Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a clear golden-copper with a short khaki head. Faint nose of metallic vitamin and light apple peel. Slightly oily and moderate carbonation. More toasted malt is noted in the flavor than in the aroma, yet still quite subdued. Apple peel, zinc, and old vitamins are also detected.
