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.

Light amber brew with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty; notes of caramel. Taste is sweet although a touch of hoppy bite comes through. Medium body; lively carbonation. Not bad. I'd drink another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. It’s a clear, dark golden to light amber colored beer with a small dense offered-white head. Nice curtains. The aroma is rather malty, with caramel and some nuts. A little grassy, piney hoppyness too. Medium body, dry and too carbonated. There’s a decent bitterness in the flavor, with caramel and a little nutty touch. The finish is a bit boring, just like the initial flavor, with a touch of metal added. Certainly not impressive this one, but at least it downs easily. 130825

ben4321 (4026) - 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.
