A traditional English-Style ale with an American twist. Hints of imported caramel malt blend with distinct American hops to achieve perfect harmony. Soft and balanced between malt and hops, the 1A.M. Ale finishes with a light fruitiness and pleasant sweetness.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Paddle sampler on tap at the brewpub (Downers Grove, IL). My first visit to Emmett’s. Pours a crisp amber gold hue, dulled glow from within and the edges. No haze as a transparent beer comes forward. Decent sized whitish head sits atop and rings, dies to a decent ring and laces small. Aromas are some touches of caramel and pale malts, biscuits and a mellow sweetness hit a dry floral and earthy hopping. Touches of fruitiness mix with the sweeter malts, mellow. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering some sufficient touches of pale malts, caramel, and biscuits. A mellow sweetness grows, mixing with some gentle fruitiness and spice. Calming, mellow body offers some dry florals and earthy hops into the finish but doesn’t keep the beer from being a bit sweeter. Ok. A gentle touch of American citrusy hop elements comes into play late and after it warms a bit more..

Tap at the brewery. A nice session beer. Honey colored pour with a thin head. Pretty much as billed. An English mild but with bright aromatic American hops.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
09-May-08 (22-oz bottle with a competition label only: Free bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) Every now and then, it’s nice to kick back and pour an easy-drinkin’ session ale. This is a wonderfully nutty ale, fairly malty, mildly chocolaty and toasty, but low in sweetness. Floral hops adds mild bitterness in perfect balance. The nose is very nutty and malty, and the hops contribute a nice, floral aroma in the background. Clean on the palate, light-medium in body, and light-medium in carbonation, this 4.5% beer is as easy on the palate as it is on the intoxication level. In the glass, the beer is dark-amber in color and fairly cloudy, but it pours only a quarter-inch of off-white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Overall, 1 A.M. Ale is not going to bowl you over with big, brawny flavor, but rather seduce you with great balance and solid craftsmanship. A nice change of pace.
