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
