This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

12oz can from Binny’s in Buffalo Grove. Pours an unclear amber with a tan head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has berrys, heavy malt and sweet fruits. Taste is of sweet caramelly malts, some sweet fruit, some bread and a bit of earthiness. Brown sugar kicks in further down. Medium bodied and fairly thick. Finishes sweet and fruity. Shrug, not high expectations, and those were met. 13.2

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, biscuit, toast, light roast, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light roast, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, citrus zest, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid amber ale. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Leafs93 (2058) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours amber with a medium off white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is caramel, toast and some florals. Taste is sweet with definitive bitters that are not normally present in ambers. Medium bodied, slick texture and lingering finish.

Sour. Red apple skins, peach yogurt, red hot cinnamon candies, alcohol and hairspray in the nose. Burnt sugar. Medium body, sweet, phenolic and acidic enough to ruin the experience. Yeasty yogurt and cosmetic off-notes.

12 oz. can. Pour is a medium amber, hazy with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, with honey and some sweet citrus notes. Maybe a bit of pineapple. Taste is malty with plenty of caramel, some sweet fruit, a decent amount of hop bitterness. Not bad.

A respectable amber ale is a prototypical summer grilling beer. I can’t say that I was wild about this first experience with Crazy Mountain but at less than $2.00 it was low risk. That said I’d definitely not turn it down at a tailgating party or somewhere else where I was just hanging out with friends.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy orange base with vanilla head has a gentle presence. Warm woody hops tickle the air with orange glaze and melony cheesecake.

Flavor / Palate - Opening with a pleasant oakiness this slowly warms the tongue and throat. Light pine, orange glo, and traces of wood ash add some depth. This has a reasonable texture. A bit more depth might be nice. Overall though it is one of those interchangeable low ABV session beers that is perfect for when you don’t want a high gravity behemoth.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Decent amber ale, on tap at the los angeles beer festival, slight sweet aroma. Very smooth in flavor and easy drinking. Not too hoppy or bitter, so a decent amber ale for me.
