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.

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.

Medium bodied, satisfying amber ale. Hints of caramel in the sweet malt presence, slightly bitter finish is short and sweet. Nondescript, but well crafted.

What a great way to procrastinate from studying for my real estate exam, by rating a beer. This Saint Arnold Amber Ale was acquired in a trade with Andrew196 from Texas, thanks for the brew! ** This beer must have been a bit too cold when I poured it because the head was virtually non-existent. This Amber Ale is actually a vibrant golden orange in color; the palate is medium and smooth. The flavor isn’t lacking either the hop or the malt, actually, it is nutty and toffee like, with a nice bitter edge in the finish. The hops are certainly apparent in the aroma, smell is subdued but suggests citrus; A pretty decent beer overall.

Tasted much better on draft (at Molly's Pub)than in bottle. Small white head dissipates immediately. Body is amber, slightly murky, cloudy. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Pine? Flavor is a little medicine-like given the sweetness, but is very drinkable and ends bitter. Fairly balanced, but leans toward hoppy sweetness. Very little carbonation. One I could definitely drink again.

ok, this is much better. slightly tipped toward the bitter side and no off flavors or aromas. carmel leaning sweetness. a medium full aroma. fairly clean lightly particulate finish.

BBB63 (6152) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2003
On tap at Flying Saucer in downtown Fort Worth. As expected, amber hue with small creamy head and fair lacing. Interesting aroma of toasted malts, cookie dough, perfume hops, vanilla, and bubble gum. Sweet and malty taste with a spicey undertone, but not anything outstanding. Dry and soft mouthfeel leading to a slighty chalky feel. Quaffable, okay beer.

A good amber with full flavor. Malt balanced well with hops. It clings on at the finish just a little too long.
