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.

omhper (22999) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2010
Draught at Elk Public House, Spokane, WA. Hazy amber, small head. Mildly roasty with perfume amd grain. Mid dry with chewy mouthfeel and medium body. Nicely grainy with mild hop accent and enough malt depth to lift it way above the mainstream of microbrewed beers. Low to medium bitterness. A lovely amber ale!

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2001
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Finally, the long-awaited re-rate of African Amber! Cloudy, amber, nice thick head. Complex malt nose - toasty, woody, caramelly, like a really nice multigrain bread. The palate is similar, with toasty up front, lots of earthiness and a pleasurable amount of hop bitterness. Well-made amber.

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled on tap at the Taphouse, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, dry citrus fruits and bready qualities. Flavour is a very refreshing balance of caramel malt and citrus hops, with a quite a dry, slightly bready mouthfeel. This is how you make a good amber ale. Enjoyable.
