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

Pours a clear reddish amber. Aroma is bready. Taste is slightly Sweet at the start followed by a crisp bitterness that rises from underneath an lingers overtaking any lingering malt balance. The result is a crisp dry finish. Nice pallet but a little bitter.

Pours light red with off white head. Nice light hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. Flavor is bisuity and a bit dank. No sweetness at all. Kind of strange. Finish is lightly clean with a bit more bisuit.

Great beer. Nice sweet start with a great hoppy finish. Really has a nice mouth feel. No head and little laceing is my only real complaint. Poured out of draft at tatoomoms.

cmc619 (372) - California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
At new Mission brewhouse in downtown SD. Pour 3/5 of flight. Third German interpretation in the range. Delicious caramel malts interact with huge hoppiness (especially for the style) to create a really good, balanced beer. Very herbal hop finish. Similar to Boston Lager in some ways, but way hoppier. Nice beer.

Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Weak walnut aroma. Clear amber, medium head. Sweet grainy flavor with white grape accents. Clean finish. Not a style I like, but this one has some neat qualities.
