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 - 55į Fahrenheit.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a light, quick-dissipating head. Nose is stone fruit, toast, and light spice. Flavor starts out rich and complex, but is kind of hollow in the middle; Finish is kind of weak, with not much depth. Starts out promising, but sort of fades away.

Meh...only non-mass market beer I could find in Houston airport (Shiner doesnít count). Super pale like a dark pilsner. Drinks like a pale ale. Bit of a metallic aftertaste. Fine but dissapointing...where is the malt?

12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from fiveacestx; THANKS Cam! Aroma of malt, hops, and a hint of caramel. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny and small-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, and some grain. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, malt, hop, caramel finish.

Bottle- pours a clear amber color with a nice head and some lacing. Herbal aroma with some malt sweetness with a hint of fruit. Taste of malty sweetness with hint of citrus. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp smooth and refreshing. nicely balanced. Another good beer from St. Arnoldís. Worth a try.

rougeau13 (2003) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2012
The color is kind of a pale amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts and just a touch of hops. Taste is pretty decent, though not extravagant, a touch sweet and a touch hoppy. Medium-thin bodied. Decent session ale, well balanced.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle. An all-around light amber. The color is extremely light for the style, a straw color only a shade darker than pilsners. The aroma has a distant hint of grassy hops and toast. The flavor has some bread notes and a quick, clean, hoppy finish. Itís pretty refreshing and clean, though Iím not sure what makes it an amber. Iíd say itís more of a light American pale ale.

My favorite Amber. Hoppy, crisp, thick, frothy head, although a slight metallic smell/aftertaste in some batches. A definite go-to at just about any bar in Texas. Really like this beer.

Light colored amber. Light in taste, with a nice malt, floral flavor. Smooth finish.
