Our lightest in terms of alcohol comes in at 4.8% by volume so that malt can dominate the flavor profile. Caramel sweet malt all over the palate with a noticeable “jumping just over the barrier” citrus hop aroma. Surprisingly refreshing for such a malt driven ale. Truly and all season American Amber.

portableparty (2025) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a red amber with a foamy off white head that fades. Aroma grassy malt with some subtle caramel. Taste is more gass and grain malt with a caramel finish and a faint metallic flavor. Palate is thin and slick with a chaulky dry finish. Can’t say anything bad goes down easy and it’s refreshing.

22 oz bomber of boring beer from EZ. I wasn’t expecting much from an amber but at $3.99 I couldn’t resist. I shoul have. Man this is a boring beer. Poured a good looking hazy light chocolate brown body under a full foamy head that lasts the duration. Body is thinner with soft carbonation and easy drinking. Aroma of slight choclate and grains. Flavor of light caramel malt and toast. Boring.

22oz Bottle Thanks to Sam. Pours out a dark amber topped with a small head. Aroma was of malts, some citrus hops, and a little caramel sweetness. Taste was as the aroma with the sweet malts leading the way. A light bitter hop on the end.

Pours a deep amber, off-white head. Nose is carmel/amber malts, spicy hop. The drink is sweet, carmel, light peppery spicy hop, and hop bitters. Nice amber, does not offend and I can always walk the three blocks to get another one.
