The Northwest’s original, unfiltered and dry hopped amber ale. African Amber’s pioneering and innovative style is proof that drink-abilty does not have to be achieved by sacrificing flavor. This beer erupts with a floral, hoppy taste, followed by a well rounded malty middle, finishing with a nicely organic hop flavor. Locally sourced two row grain and a blend of specialty malts give our amber its rich taste. Further complexity is achieved by leaving the beer unfiltered, providing exceptional flavor, as well as giving our amber its unique "cloudy" look. Lastly, we actually place a bag of fresh, locally grown, Yakima valley hops in each keg creating what has become the original, cult classic, northwest amber ale.

On tap. Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, earthy with biscuity malts. Taste is mostly sweet with some light hops. Body is smooth; soft carbonation - goes down smoothly. This is a "go to" beer when I visit the Pacific Northwest.

A great amber. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange with a thick white head. Smells like smokey apple pie. Taste starts and finishes slightly hoppy, with a sweet, vanilla middle. Thick taste, very unfiltered. Had on tap at Sirens in Port Townsend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown and light bodied. Poor head retention. Low hops and high sweetness. Surprisingly strong citrus flavours, despite the low hop presence. Strong malt flavours like a biscuit.

I don’t know much about how these ratings work (like ’Palate’ and stuff). I’m not a beer snob, I just know what I like...and I REALLY like this beer!
