COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Ales are mostly an American invention. And with its beautiful copper color and subtle hop aroma, our Redwood Flats Amber is our traditional take on a modern American classic. Featuring a unique blend of American hops and malts, Redwood Flats Amber is bold and assertive, with a strongly hoppy flavor thatís easy to drink and even easier to love.

Why this showed up at my local Alabama Piggly Wiggly, I donít know. Iím just happy that it did, because that store and its beer supplier donít care much about stocking anything other than the macro ímurkin drainpours. This beer: a fine example of its style. Will buy again at Piggly Wiggly, probably not anywhere else.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a short beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and redder fruits.. metallic and medicinal accents.. not so good. The flavor found sweet caramel and fruits with herbal and metallic notes plus sharp carbonation around.. finished sharp and a little bitter. Lighter-bodied and not all that pleasant to drink.

ben4321 (3859) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/25/12

Aroma: The nose is malty, with some caramel, a little butter, nuts, earth, and some crystal malts
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head, and some streaky lace
Flavor: it starts malty, but gets kind of buttery quickly, and has some off hay-like hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it does not have a great mouthfeel, and the finish is a touch off too
Overall Impression: I was not a huge fan of this one. Though it has some decent components to the early parts of the palate, the middle and late palates both have a lot off about them, and that leaves a somewhat unpleasant lasting impression.

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller tan head that went rather quick. Left a little bit of lacing on the glass. Weaker caramel, nuts and wood aroma. Very thin and watery body. Flavor was caramel and malts. Very weak mouthfeel. Not a lot to this beer. Very disappointing.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours a nice amber color with a light head. Aroma is faint and slightly sweet. Flavor is solid, medium-bodied....Nothing special at all, but a completely drinkable, decent beer.

S_Side_Smitty (444) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel with a faint hoppy pine background. Iím not sure why the score is so low on this one, but this ale seems really well balnced flavor-wise. Initially you taste mellow resinous pine that transforms into a very agreeable malty bitterness for the finish. The caramel sweetness remains throughout. This would make a great sessionable amber ale.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Mild aroma. The beer has a scratchy feel to it. Orange malt flavor with some perky hops. Flavors ok but not blended smoothly.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours a translucent, light copper with a thick, white head that stays. Excellent lacing. Lightly floral aroma. Somewhat thin and flat mouthfeel. Thin, slightly sour taste. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Finger of head with a reddish hue. Clear, copper colored body. Smell is faintly lemon, faintly. Plain Jane taste. Almost flavorless at first, mild bitterness to end it. Crisp and clean texture, medium body with moderate carbonation. Not bad, but not good or interesting.
