Refreshingly balanced & flavorful, our Amber Ale pairs wonderfully with a variety of foods while holding its own as a session beer. Brewed with five mails and three hop varieties. IBUs: 30 / OG: 12.8° Plato

Bottle from Chuck’s.

I’ve been deeply impressed by a number of the Oakshire beers, so I thought this was worth the try despite being rather bored of the style. Reasonably well balanced, crystal malt and balanced if subdued hops, but without a spark that makes one sit up and take note.

Sampled in a bomber. Pours deep amber brown with a Lacey head. Quality brew that is smooth on the palate.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a decent white head. Aroma of yeast, grass, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Just a little thin but quite drinkable.

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of warm toasted malt. Med body more or less. Flavor is a touch of chocolate, with toast malt and enough hop to taste. Maybe carob rather than chocolate. Finish is fairly dry, and it’s bitter enough for 30 IBUs. Certainly drinkable.

22. Pours a clear very dark brown. Loose tan head. Big sweet malty molasses nose. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Molasses toast and caramel on the mid palate, along with a bit more tanginess than it really needs. Tangy sweet caramel finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle:   Deep dirty caramel, a little brownish, moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Hefty grainy malt like aroma.   Slightly earthy.   I can already tell its not my style.   Has an organic like flair when I take my first sip, earthy, soily, with the maltiness taking a backseat.   Mild sweetness, make that slight sweetness.   Needs more caramel malt like sweetness to counteract the earthy/soily graininess.   As it warms the earthy/soily aspect becomes more prominant, further pushing me away.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Certainly feels heavy enough, not thin, but just isnt my type of maltiness.   Having Mac & Jacks African Amber made only a few miles away has me spoiled.   This one is okay, but the graininess of the earthen/soil like malts just makes me want to put it down.
