Dusseldorf-Style Altbier. Our Amber ale is a wonderful compromise between the light and refreshing, and dark and full-flavored beers available today. Our Amber is clean, and like our Blonde ale, exhibits a crisp, lager-like character. The firm bitterness is balanced by the sweet, caramel and nutty malt character provided by the generous use of Munich, Vienna, and Pilsner malts. 43 IBU

Aroma is all sweet malt. Appearance is nice copper amber with medum tan head, crystal clear. Taste is malt forward with some decent hop bitterness. Palate is medium light and crisp. Overall a clean beer.... but more like an American Amber without any Aroma or Flavoring hops. Cant taste the Pilsener in this and there is no malt depth here. Not a good Alt, a boring Amber.

Actually drank this yesterday but rating it now. A nice pleasant taste, taking middle ground on other parameters (since it is no longer in front of me) but it was a good value at Safeway.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a large fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty, caramel, vegetal and dark fruits. The flavor was malty, vegetal, sour caramel and dark fruits. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

Keg at the taproom, SD, 12/11/14. Rich amber with reddish hues topped with a light beige covering. Nose is caramel malt, candied fruit peel, earthy hop, biscuit. Taste comprises caramel, sweet fruit notes, earthy, candied sugar. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so.

tasty amber ale, malty caramel, perhaps a little too sweet? decent brew but I didn’t find it crisp like they describe?

not a huge fan, but not bad either. this amber/alt is reminicent of Alaskan Amber, not quite as good. low level hops and light malt. uneventful taste.

Thanx Cody. This was poured into a pint glass and a stange. The appearance had a glossy amber color with a one finger white foamy head in the pint glass and a two and a half finger white foamy head in the stange. Both had the same foamy stringy lacing after the head died. The aroma smelled the same in both glasses: light cooked fruity slightly caramel breadiness over top of a herbal grassiness. The taste followed the aroma, it was pretty much the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was okay for the style and for me. There’s a light toasty edge rolling over my mouth. Overall, decent altbier I think I could do again, its nothing special, but nothing bad.

Felt like I got hints of prune on the taste when first drinking. Not the style of Amber that I enjoy, feels less amber and more pruney.

Pale amber colored beer with a small white head. Fruity malty caramel aroma with a very small hint of hops. Semi-sweet caramel flavor with a touch of bitterness from the hops.

The beer has only a mediocre appearance and head, the aroma being feint and similar, but it sits delicately on the palate and washes down easily. I would have scored the beer higher if the aroma and appearance measured more evenly with the more superior palate and taste.
