COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A well balanced, full flavored, amber ale. It has a rich, malty body with a pleasant caramel character derived from a specialty Caravienne malt. A complex hop aroma, with a hint of floral and citrus comes from a combination of Cascades and Liberty hops. It has a rich, creamy head with a fine lace. The light fruitiness, characteristic of ales, is derived from a proprietary yeast strain. Saint Arnold Amber Ale is best consumed at 50 - 55° Fahrenheit.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle at a restaurant in Houston, 7/16/13

Aroma: The nose is on the malty side, some caramel notes, fruity notes, and some mild hops as well
Appearance: This one pours an amber color with a beige head and light-medium lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, caramel and malty, with a light hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent feel, and some pretty solid drinkability to it
Overall Impression: This one is another fine one from Saint Arnold that just doesn’t really get anywhere beyond fine. If it is the only craft thing available at a restaurant, I’ll drink it again, but I probably wouldn’t order it if there was something more interesting available.

From tap at brewery. Pours fairly dark amber with some off white head. Decent lacing. Nose is somewhat hoppy with a little caramel sweetness. Taste is also fairly hoppy and slightly dirty. Big, lingering finish. Not bad.

Thin orange, minimal head. Nose is light amber roasted grain. Sweet on the tongue. Middle is orange sherbert and malt. Finish is sweet, maybe a touch too sweet.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of mild wheat sweet honey hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Consumed straight from the bottle. Showed a surprising amount of hop character; citrusy and floral. Notes of pale and sweet malts, faint spice, and a little snap of grassiness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. Crisp and light and refreshing. Works as a summer beer probably. Pretty basic ale.

Pours out a soft, pale light almost more golden than it does amber. It’s not the rich almost copper color that some Amber or Irish Red Ales can be. Nice bright white head on top that stays throughout the course of the beer. Defiantly getting that pale malt build on the nose with almost no hop aroma mixed in. The maltiness come out even more on the tongue with just a slight bitterness on the finish. I was a bit disappointed as I would have loved to see the hops come out a little bit more on this beer, but overall, a solid amber that would go well with a burger, steak, pork, BBQ....pretty any much red meat you can think of. I think this would be a good intro beer to non craft beer drinkers, but at the same time, I don’t think it will insult the palate of the seasoned craft beer drinker.
