This light copper American amber is brewed with crystal and Columbus hops that produce a mild hop bitterness. Snap-dragon nose and a well-balanced malty body with a light caramel finish.

draft at brewery, light and caramelly, heavy on the hops for the stryle, which is necessary because this style is too light. Tasty and clean. Great for the pool

Clear and light red with an off white head. Aroma is malt forward with a taste a good balance of malt and hoppy bitterness. A nice drinking amber with good balance.

Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a small off-white head that leaves a film atop the beer. Notes of toasted and amber and caramel malts, with leafy hops. Very simple, which is fine. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Straightforward amber with a good balance of several malts.

Called American Amber Ale at the brewpub. I popped the growler screw top and instantly got this dank aroma that rushed out of the neck of the growler. Cool beans. It pours with a clear copper body that has thick gold edges and supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up a dash of malt sweetness amid roasted malts, spicy hops and full up earthy dankness. Nice. The taste starts with a mix of spicy hops, floral hops and a modest level of roasted malts. Behind those notes lingers thin strands of estery like fruitiness. This has a nice flavor and the play between the roasted malts and spicy hoppy dankness works really well for me. I will definitely get more of this one.

Clear amber pour, off white head. Light aroma of caramel, biscuity malts, slight hops. Flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt and hops. A bit hoppier than most ambers. Finishes with a hint of tropical fruit.
