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.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Copper/amber coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, nuts and not much else. Medium to Light-bodied; Mild malty flavours with caramel, nuts, raisins and some pitted fruits in. Aftertaste shows mild characteristics with only some nuts and malt going through - pretty bland indeed. Overall, a decent beer, good as an escape from some of the stronger beers, but thatís about it. I sampled this beer on draught in June 2010.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Tap. Amber on Nitro pour. Clear copper color, thick-off white head of cream. Much more pine aroma is apparent than the other Amber Ale Chophouse offers. Creamy smooth mouthfeel mellows out the bittering hops, adds to flavor. Nice toasted cereal flavor balanced out with a sharp bitter hop.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Draught at the brewery. Amber red color with a lasting creamy light beige head. Malty bread crust aroma with some light hops as well. Malty flavor of caramel and bread crust. A touch of sweetness and some subtle piney hops. Medium-light body and smooth carbonation. The board said that this was "seriously hopped in the west coast style" um... no. Just no. I canít really hate on it per se, but it this is just not hoppy by any measure, especially compared to the Capitol Amber Waves being brewed just up the street.
