Well there is a hint of amber in this beer - it looks more like red wine to me. The aroma is spicy and fruit, quite pleasant. Has a sharp taste(?) with a roast coffee character. Really this beer is all about hops - lots of 'em. I like hops and I like this beer. Lip smacking good.

Bottle: O.K. nose kinda roasty, mild though. Beautiful clear amber color. Bitter hops with carmel/coffee qualities. Goes down east with lingering bitter finish. Lost points on the nose. Otherwise I'll always look foward to one of these.

Roasted malt flavor, light carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Almost no aroma. Decent beer but nothing too special about it.

Pretty dark. Taste in nose is closer to a Brown than an amber. Roasted chocolate/coffe. The thing that might allow them to call this amber is the hoppy finish.

This beer did not pour an amber as expected, but poured a very dark color like an imperial stout. The aroma reminded me of coffee, but not too stronly - reminded me of a stout, really. The taste was very similar to the aroma - tasted like a stout with hints of coffee. I'm not sure why this is labeled as an amber ale. Really not bad at all, but it seemed middle of the pack because it didn't have any factors that made me WANT to remember it.

A very easy beer to drink. This beer doesn't really excel anywhere, but it doesn't offend either. Toasty aroma and piney hops really invite you into this one. This amber did seem to be a little watery though; my only real complaint.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2003
Bottled. Deep chesnut colour, good off white head and good condition. Excellent mix of coffee and cascade hops, reminded me of one of the first American beers to really impress me, Anchor Liberty. Sweet in the mouth with a delicate coffee flavour underneath some caramel and malt. Roasty coffee bean dry bitterness coats the mouth in the aftertaste with some residual sweetness clinging to the lips.

All of Rogue's beers I've tried over the last 6 or 8 years are incredibly smooth and approachable. I had the American Amber at a tasting 3 days ago and was not disappointed. This chestnut colored brew had a small but dense head and a nose of wood, bread (malt), and caramel. Hops were mellow and it went down very easy; smooth and almost creamy. I'd like it if they took this recipe and hopped the Hell out of it to make an IPA.
