Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2015
American amber ale apparently named after a city in Oregon. From a 35,5 cl can, this is one of those craft breweries which come in elaborately decorated cans nowadays - which isn’t even such a bad idea, given the complete protection from light (beer’s worst enemy) and it being a lot less brittle than glassware. Anyway: misty orange blonde beer under a creamy, medium thick, irregular, slightly yellowish white head leaving good lacing. Refreshing aroma of orange peel, pink grapefruit, red onion, celery (pretty strong even!), fresh tomato soup with meat balls (no kidding!), cooked green beans, papaja, persimmon, honey, overripe apricot, white bread, peanuts. Taste begins fairly neutral, dried fruits and a hint of orange zest, minerally, medium carbonation, nutty, bit metallic in the middle, sourish hint, finishing in an ’American’ hop bitterness involving pepper and citrus, long, leafy and drying the throat, ensuring an utterly quenching effect. Easy going but well-balanced and hoppy enough to qualify almost as an APA, this is a refreshing yet characterful beer I could drink for hours on a summer afternoon. Nice.

355 ml can. Canned on 10/2014? (not sure, print barely readable)
Pours amber color with a medium sized head. Resinous hoppy aroma with sweet malts, pine and orange too. Bitter malty flavor with resinous hops, sweet tropical fruits, mild grapefruit notes. Not a big fan of Amber Ales but this is decent.

tillmac62 (356) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a clear medium amber with a nice garnet cast. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. Nice nose of rich caramel over light citrus rind with a spicy note. Almost light medium bodied with a smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with effervescence from the middle on. The flavor profile is rather nice, reasonably intense, very well balanced and is simple, rather than complex. It begins with caramel coupled with a faint rind note. It flows to a mild herbal bitterness in the middle with a nice effervescent rush. The finish is a blend of caramel and herbal hops that slowly fade into a soft rind like bitterness. A solid session, beach or lawnmower offering.
