COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reddish copper in color, our Amber is brewed with a blend of Pale, Crystal, and Munich Malts. The slightly sweet, roasted flavor of the malts is ballanced with ample additions of Cascade hops, producing a classic American Amber Ale.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Pellucid amber with a small white head. Light floral aroma, bitter and floral hops, caramel and slight roast. Bitter hop flavors, more of the roast and caramel malts. Then floral hops show up. Hoppy palate and a bitter malt finish.

Pretty standard amber. Copper/amber pour with citrusy hops, malt, and some floral notes in the nose. Flavors are citrus, sweet malt, caramel, and some hops. Not bad for the style by any means.

Tap @ Nugget Hotel in Reno, NV. Orange to amber color with a laced head. Nut and malt aroma, with just a bit of hops and a light fruit character.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
A hazy golden amber ale with a thick dissipating white head. Pleasant light floral hops, with notes of strawberry jam. In mouth, a decent yet light ale with light mineral notes, short floral hops, a bit too short. Light to medium bodied. Not bad. Bought at Booze Bros, August 2007. Sampled May 26 2008.

Fatehunter (1213) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Poured a thin head that was quickly non-existent on top of a deep amber colored body. The aroma is faint with lemon and pine. The taste is moderately lemon bitter with a touch of malt sweetness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An average ale, but at ABV 5% it’s something you could have a few of.

dwyerpg (4566) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 1, 2007
A very malty aroma. Taste is dominated by malts throughout. Not my style of beer. The hops are hiding.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Tap @ O’Dunkens - I am stoked finally being able to knock this state off of my list. Clear amber coloring, with a floral hop nose, and a faint bit of toasted caramel maltiness. A decent touch of light fruitiness and minerality. Manages to stay clean and well balanced. Not overly complex, but not bad a general quaffer.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of jh1982, poured into a tulip. Pours a crystal clear amber with a big creamy beige head that shows great staying power and sticks to the glass well. The aroma is fairly run-of-the-mill for an amber with lightly toasted caramel malts taking the forefront with a fairly big citrus hop presence that brings a fruity sweetness to the nose. The taste is much like the aroma and is dominated by light caramel malts and toasted grains. There are hints of hops in the finish, grassy with some citrus, and a slight bitterness through the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and with plenty of carbonation. This is a very drinkable amber that doesn’t bring much unexpected or complex to the table. Not a bad beer, but not a great beer.

It’s been a long time coming, finding a beer made by a brewery in Nevada. You’d think that as big as Las Vegas is and how many people frequent that city, along with Reno that there’d be more craft breweries. Guess it’s just gambling and more gambling in those cities. Still glad to see Ruby Mountain at the store with all it’s different styles. The beer pours out a hazy light copper/amber color with a nice off-white 1-finger thick head. The aroma is mostly made up from light fruits (peaches?), caramel malts, with a light floral bitterness to it. Mouthfeel is slightly watery and sptrizy. Flavors started off with a subtle caramel maly roast quality and then finished with just a touch of floral hops. Decent beer, given how boring some beers in this style can be. Not a barnburner, but not bad for my first beer from Nevada.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 5, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a decent light tan head that quickly fades. Taste is of malt, caramel, some brown sugar, hops, some pine and some citrus. Has a similar aroma. Both the flavor and aroma are rather light, but pleasant. Has a nice, light lingering bitterness and dryness. The body is rather light and creamy, but a bit watery. Pretty good as it warms up. Rather refreshing, quite pleasant and very easy to drink. On a hot day, this would be a good thirst quencher and a nice alternative to a pale lager or other light bodied beer.
