COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fiery color and unique thirst quenching hop profile give this amber ale a signature all its own. Hand-selected Cascade hops from the NorthWest United States provide a distinct citrus flavor, while still allowing for a subtle malty sweetness.

MadRobin (2343) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sample at the District Chophouse & Brewer in downtown Washington, DC. Clear, amber-red with a cream-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of brown bread, caramel and mild floral hops. Taste of caramel, butterscotch, bread and floral hops in a nice balance. Medium body and medium carbonation. Velvet Amber, which is the same beer on nitro, was also on tap. It was a better looking beer, but with a less pleasant mouthfeel. The Velvet Amber was a clear, amber orange-red with a large khaki head and excellent lacing and no carbonation. The aroma, taste and body were about the same as the regular Amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Block (1676) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Probably my favorite beer from District ChopHouse. Nice amber pour with a white head. Aroma is hoppy and so is the flavor. Nothing unusual or spectacular but a decent beer and one of the best I had here.

DiarmaidBHK (3695) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Pours light brown from tap with a thin white head. A bit of biscuit on the nose. The biscuit on the tongue is a bit more pronounced twinned with some caramel malt. Finish lingers a bit which means I probably wouldn’t session with this.

Reviewed from notes. Pours amber with a white head. Mild lacing. Nose is amber malt with some biscuit and bread. Slight hops. Taste is pretty much just toast with some moderate bitterness. With the body this works fairly well. Good drinkability and a well made beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-09-2010
