COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg, special for Irish Craft Beer and cider Festival 2013
Our festival special is an American Amber Ale that we’ve called Amber-Ella. We’ve had our pick of the Aussie hop harvest so it’s all about Galaxy and Ella in this rather special limited edition brew.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle at Gulpd. Pours a deep hazy red amber with bubbles and a bubbly off white head. Light toffee, berries, ever so slightly soapy on the nose. Fairly mild aroma. Full of flavour, light sweetness and bigger clean bitterness. Bitter berries are prominent throughout. Clean dry bitter finish, slighly prickly. Very very tasty beer. Better than 5am Saint, in my opinion!

beerbomb65 (35) - Dunmore, County Galway, IRELAND - JUL 26, 2015
bottle 330ml. As the name says "amber" its a good amber colour with a good frothy head. Strong tropical fruit nose with passionfruit and mango and a bit of burnt caramel. Quite a bitter citrusy taste like grapefruit and a bit of pine, hoppy and not too malty.

mkel07 (4290) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2015
Taster at GABS Melbourne 230515. Poured from a bottle. To say that I am partial to an amber ale is an understatement and this one I found to be more hoppier and less maltier than I was exoected. Passionfruit in the nose with a smooth easy to drink flavour.

Davros (2320) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2015
Pours amber with a large creamy head. Nose shows tropical fruit, papaya, lychee and some soft bready malt. Aggressively bitter flavours, some soft toasty malt before pine and citrus rolls through in a tongue-coating assault.

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 30, 2014
Dark orange, slightly brown pour with a small dirty white head. Very hoppy aromas. Pineapple, mango, burnt caramel, pine, coriander. Good carbonation, tangy and delicious. Great stuff.

tomer (2160) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 25, 2014
Draught, clear deep orange to light red colour, aroma of passion fruit, lychee and pomello with just a hint of malt in the back, flavour of citrus and pine with a medium mellow bitterness and light bready malt in the back. Refreshing and very good.

didierlewallon (229) - ponferrada, SPAIN - AUG 15, 2014
Es una cerveza de color ámbar cobrizo con una pequeña espuma blanca. El aroma es de lúpulos picantes, con notas tropicales de melocotones, mango y un poco de caramelo. El sabor es equilibrado. Buena cerveza.

stravale (2490) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ The Oarsman, Carrick BBE 30/05/14 [240514]
Deep amber, hazy, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of piney hops, tropical fruits, resinous hops, caramel
Taste of caramel malts, piney hops, caramelised orange malts, tangerine, bitter grapefruit zest hops, over malty though
Palate - soft carb, medium body, oily, smooth, sweet malts and bitter hop foreground. Finish as main flavour, bitter zest, very bitter linger
Overall - Maybe over malty as close to the BBE, but has stood up quite well. To re-rate with a fresh bottle
