COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We found some fresh hop flowers down the back of the couch the other day (in their little protective foil bags so they really were fresh), and we all said as one: “Fancy Pants.” Could we do it again? Easy said, only one way to find out. Long story short, its back: Fancy Pants Amber Ale. Stupid name, serious beer. We used Galaxy Flowers through our hop-back to give a full-on tropical fruit/spicey aroma. On top of alot of traditional ale malt we threw a liberal dose of crystal malt, a little wheat and fermented her warm with an American Ale yeast. It’s deep copper/amber with a full, rocky head. 5.2% alc/vol, 35 BU, served in the bar in our fanciest glass.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Tap from mountain goat brewery. Pours a deep copper orange colour with a creamy off white head. Lovely aromas of citrus, hops, grapefruit and toffee. Taste is quite refreshing and malty in the after taste with a nice bitterness hanging around the palate. This is like a half IPA/half amber ale as its quite hoppy and fruity compared to your usual amber ale. Love the chewy maltiness. A winner for me.

This delicious, rascally hoppy amber just made my (late) morning. There’s loads of citrus floral aromas underpinned by a sweet malt flavour. The malt is a little more prominent on tasting but the hops are still lively and lovely. A winner.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 [5/11] Tap. Amber with an inch of light beige head that lasts well. Aroma has fat caramel, grass, passionfruit, a little pine and citrus. Slightly oily body. Tastes pretty much as smells with some stone fruit and wood too. Sweetish with struggling bitterness despite the punchy hop aromatics. OKish. If this is Hightail without constraints, I look forward to their Prometheus ale. [3.1]

[4/14] Can. Previous pretentious smug bastard remarks reiterated.

Top beer. Intense though balanced aroma. Fantastic flavor of malts at first though the bittnes kicks in with a long finish. Pour a dark amber with red hues. Dry in the mouth. Really good.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2011 Nose is quite floral and citric. In the mouth it is 50%caramel 50% lingering citirc/floral hops. Well balanced but the malt tends to get more dominant as it warms.

Tap at the brewery. Very tasty. Aromas of roasted malt, caramel, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with a light bitter finish. Velvety palate, medium body. Amber colour, with a frothy white head.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2010
Draught at The Local Taphouse (Sydney). Another popular one with the GrandMistress. Looks more light brown than amber in the glass. Sour fruit on the nose. A smooth palate with a little creaminess. The malt and hops are quite mellow, but the balance works well. Toffee from the malt and citrus and fruit from the hops. I love the sourness - farmhouse ale like.
