12 ounce can
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.

This beer is your portotypical 3.1. Not much at all. Light hoppiness with notes of water, caramel, grass, and water. Just inoffensive and average.

Wonderful hoppy aroma leads to complex malt flavors. Nutty flavors with an American hop flavor play together very well.

En regnig fredageftermiddag på Monk’s Café i Stockholm är Crazy Mountain Amber Ale det ljus i tunneln som inte är ett mötande tåg. När man ligger vid tröskeln till helg, och flåsar som en Feidippides vid Atens stadsportar, är det denna brygd som sveper upp en ur utmattningen och stöttar en fram till feriernas famn. För denna välgärning belönar jag Crazy Mountain med ett betyg som är högre än vad normala omständigheter hade bidragit till.

Drank out of the can, so hard to judge the aroma and appearance well. For an amber drinker, this is very refreshing. Not the best I ever had, but easy to drink and would definitely get again.

Bottle; poured a dark caramel/copper with a khaki colored head. Aroma of caramels, sweet malt, toffee and veggies. Flavor was very similar to the aroma with maybe a touch more of earthiness. Nice sweetness and caramel notes.

Average amber. In fact, it was leaning into pale ale category if not for the color, which was a copper-amber with a good sized head. Mild hop aroma with some malts in the background. Average palate weight with good carbonation. The hops bitterness was up front with a lingering malty flavor that didn’t blend all that well. Not a bad beer just not very exciting.

Can, shared at brew club. Pours a minimal head over an amber (SRM12) body....nose is moderate caramel, cereal.....taste light toffee/caramel, hints of sweetness from the malts, hops add a light bitter finish, esters minimal.....mouth fee light of medium, carbonation adds light acid finish. This is a typical craft Amber. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6
