Brewed in the style of an American Amber ale, this beer is smooth and complex with a distinctive hop aroma and flavor. Its reddish hue is a result of our brewmaster’s unique combination of crystal malts and chocolate malt used during the mashing process.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Clear red orange color with minimal lacing. The aroma is very mild with a very slight musky feel. Bitter dirty palate that lacks a certain needed malt feeling. I’ve had better ambers.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Corny keg at Hamilton Creek. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of fruity ale esters. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of caramel malts, with some toasty and nutty nuances, countered by a tamed spicy bitterness. Sort of boring by itself, but a good gateway beer or something to pair with food (pizza, wings, etc)
