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.

On cask at Ginger Man in Dallas. What a waste of taking the trouble to put a beer in a cask and on a hand pump. Had a small white head. Had a light gold and amber colored body. The aroma was slight oranges. The taste was thin with apples and some sourness. Below average in every respect.

wasn’t expecting much when I popped the cap. Nice surprise, interesting hop bite, no not a pale ale but a refreshing change of pace.

Cask at the Gingerman in Austin. Lovely brew. Man I love to watch a real ale poured. MMMM. Blindingly golden...not really amber. Always wondered about that. The head looks like it was served with nitrogen. thick...creamy...lacy...longlasting. Smells like apples. No really smells like granny smith apples. Sweet on the tounge...too sweet for more than two or three. Lovingly malted. Lightly hopped. Excllent mouthfeel. Its cask baby. Check it out. G-rat

This stuff is great on tap. I love the malt in this beer, and the flavor is strong across the board. I'm a big fan.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 cask. wow. tried this as a bottled beer and then tried it again at the Gingerman in Houston off the cask. Let me tell you--if you haven't ever tried a cask conditioned beer, you need to do it right away. Holy shit, the flavors are as different as a barleywine from a dubbel. The hops in a cask conditioned ale are so pure and so true to how they smell when you are brewing that you might as well NEVER drink a bottled beer again. The hops are present and forward, but they have no acidic edge--they smell floral and hoppy without the acid, without the bitterness. wow.

Brock's version of the classic American Amber is a bit too much on the malty side, but a fine representation of the style. The bottled version loses some of the rich flavor that is presented on tap. I recommend you visit the brewery if you are in the Houston area.

Gather 'round chillun and let me tell you about when I first had this yar beer. It was a might long time ago it seems. Been to the brewery. Had it there, had it here, in a bottle, on tap, cask. Memory tells me that it was somewhat hoppier when it first hit the street some odd years ago. Damn, how long HAVE they been around now? Must be ten years plus, right? Anyway, there's something that just doesn't sit right with the flavor. I'll take a damn Siebels class some day and finally put my finger on it. As many like the beer much more than I do. I'll just say it's not bad (and it isn't).

Amber? It pours golden, with a little head. Smells light, nothing stands out in particular. Flavour is mostly of citrus hops. Don't like much.

Really light clear yellow color. Some pale malt and hop nose. No really flavor up front but has a nice bitterness in the end. Slight carbination. A solid beer and good for having more than one in an evening.
