COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium-bodied with an appealing amber hue, this is the First Ale of the Republic. Its organic pale, Munich, and crystal malts create a gentle sweet character that is difficult to resist. From organic Hallertauer hops come a zesty flavor and aroma that beautifully balance Organic Amber’s malt profile. The result: Truly delicious ale that salutes organic farmers and all the goodness they bring to our tables.

penstemon (199) - Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head, not much lacing. Malts dominate the aroma, slightly sweet grain, honeyed biscuit, and cracker. Also soft hop aromas that are floral, grassy and citrusy. Taste is rye crispbread, grain, a bit peppery, and very light hop flavor (citrus and floral). Light bitterness. Light-medium body, soft, smooth carbonation. A little bland but easy drinking.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
On tap. Amber with a nice head. Breadlike maltiness with floral hops. OK, but not one to remember.

Arthaey (15) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Very smooth, malty amber without much hop bitterness. No real aroma to speak of, but it's a beautiful amber color. I'd be happy to drink this again.

Hypo_Luxa (58) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2014
bitter sweet, med bodied, bit of a soapy mouth feel, but not all that bad. Caramel malts leads nicely into the Hallertauer hops. Short citrusy punch at the end. Aftertaste is honey and caramel. Not a bad beer, but not great. Would be really nice on a hot spring day.

ccex (1074) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bomber pours an almost clear amber with small disappearing white head. Aroma is caramel malts and weak hops. Taste is mostly sweet with slight bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a soapy mouthfeel. OK for an amber, but not one I’ll eagerly try again.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Growler. Clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, herbal hops and light fruitiness. Flavor is mostly mild caramel malt with a faint hop presence and fairly clean yeast. Medium body with a smooth mouth fee. Solid amber, goes down easy.

portableparty (2056) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours amber with a tight soapy khaki head that settles to a soapy film. Aroma is sweet malt and crystal sugar and faint dulled hops (very very faint). Taste is light bitterness and watery with the sugary malt come into play. Palate is thin and watery with a dry finish. The aroma is the best part of this beer.
