COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

Otter Amber was first brewed for the trade in March 2009 as a mid gravity beer to complete the Otter range. Over the last 10 years the ’mid gravity’ beer has become popular with drinkers, delivering a reasonable strength with great flavour. This gave us the opportunity to develop a really special beer, which within a month of its launch, won its first award in Newton Abbot at SIBA’s prestigious Tuckers Maltings beer festival. Otter Amber has all the qualities of other Otter beers but with a more complex mix of aroma and flavour.
Appearance: Beautifully polished Amber
Aroma: Amber’s nose has a lovely blend of citrus fruit and spice.
Taste: The special Cara malt and carefully selected hops in Amber deliver a finely balanced bitter flavour, with hints of tropical fruit and spice sometimes even an impression of ginger.
Hops used: Northern Brewer, Styrian Goldings, Willamette

Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Looks like a typical cask bitter, but with a tighter, almost creamy head. Smells like a classic leafy bitter - some nice dry undergrowthy hops, some almost perfumey aspects too. Tastes similar, but is a bit less interesting. Just simple slightly sweet malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Easy lunchtime or session bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (2701) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2014
On cask at the Grosvenor. Appearance - amber and slightly murky. Decent head. Nose - toffee with a faint biscuity note. Some spice. Taste - more toffee and biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - decent if uninspiring.

jjsint (839) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber/yellow, very clear. Faint scent of honey with a bit of orange and biscuit. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish, simple but clean and wonderfully refreshing. More than the sum of its parts.
