COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Description: Native Amber is an audacious blend of hops and malt. Caramel and biscuit notes carry the Cascade and Cluster hop additions through to an enjoyably round finish. The malt complexity proves rich and the dry-hopped character is invigorating.

Can courtesy of JCB. Pour is deep amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma shows biscuit and caramel sweetness with some herbal hops and a touch of pine. Flavor is somewhat sweet with underlying notes of apple, light citrus, and some floral/earthy character as well. Overall body is moderate and the finish is lightly bitter.

Can : Pour is murk dark golden with a large, frothy, off white head in this glass. It seems overcarbonated, I suppose - and turns into this chunks english muffin look - it retains well, sticky lacing. Anyway - the nose is tropical fruit salad and caramel for the most part. Definitely malt forward here - too much so in my estimation - and too sweet as well, but its still a fairly nice drinker. Tropical fruits, cream, caramel, and a hop bitterness does present itself near the finish.

Tallboy can - thanks, Gabe! Handsome pour, deep amber, moderately clear with a crisp head. Nose of soft biscuit malts, dry leafy hops, and just a hint of sweetness. Clean and dry and well-hopped, this is certainly better than the average amber ale Iíve had. Balanced and flavorful, pretty well done.

16 ounce can thanks to americbrew, pours an amber color, aromas of caramel, malt, pine and citrus. Flavor is the same, nothing great but nothing bad either, nice little brew that was a nice starter for the night.

jkwalking05 (3939) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Amber in color and hazy with a dense, creamy off-white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit, light floral, thick caramel and malt. Taste is of spicy hops, caramel, tropical fruit, and light grapefruit. One of the better ambers Iíve had. Probably because itís slightly more hoppy than an amber should be...at least itís not BORING!

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with an off white film.

Aroma: Caramel malts, bread, piny hops.

Taste. Citrus pine combo followed by some spicy sweet malt. Finishes with fruity bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, slightly astringent. Average carbonation.

Overall: Usually not a fan of amber ales, but when you put a generous dose of Cascade in it, itís some next level shit.

Amber color, nice lacing beige colored head. Toasty, biscuit, malts, caramel, rich smell. Taste is malt and hop balance. Taste is plainer, but not bad.

Weird, this has quite a dry hop bite at the start and in the middle, but the finish is an odd, slightly tinny orange flavor. Hard to say whether I like this or not; need to have again I guess.
