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 that’s easy to drink and even easier to love.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops and a salty note, almost like potato chips. The taste is caramel malts, nutty notes and a bitter herbal, citrus hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Decent.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark copper toward brown with a finger of tan head. Nose is caramel malt, brown sugary, with notes of toffee and spice. Tastes caramel malty, a bit like Yuengling, with a lot of malt, mild hops, and mile toffee.

shrubber85 (7960) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt aroma. Amber with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Not horrible but not a fan of the flavor combination.

Ughsmash (7182) - 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.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin off white head. Relatively flavorless and inoffensive, with some light malty sweetness and relatively low bitterness. Not awful.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. And here I thought, starting with the Dark, that they actually make drinkable beers. Arrgh, the aftertaste! I just ate a cockroach! A cockroach caked with metal filings and under-refrigerator lint! So bad it almost triggered the gag reflex. Shame on them for giving this a tolerable aroma. It's high time I finally made out a will, if I'm to continue reviewing beers of this nature.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2012
12/23/12. 12oz bottle from Warehouse in Albany, GA. Clear light red/amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring but laces surprisingly well. Mute aroma with a touch of caramel and chocolate and not much else. Light flavor, again with a touch of caramel and chocolate, and a certain mustiness. "Strongly hoppy flavor" ...hahahahaha.
