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.

Pours out a soft, pale light almost more golden than it does amber. Itís 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 donít think it will insult the palate of the seasoned craft beer drinker.

Tried this beer on tap at Twin Peaks in Houston, TX. An amber ale with a slightly sweet malty flavor; light caramel notes with floral and citrus notes from the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks for the extra Brad! Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Founderís snifter. A: Pours a clear solid orange color with a little off white head that quickly recedes into a slight bubbly film. Iím very surprised how light colored the brew is as I was expecting a darker color. S: Big cracker malts right off the nose, this is the maltiest amber ale Iíve ever smelled. Slight caramel sugars come off as well with a light fruity note. T: A little hoppy forefront with a very big malt middle. A mix of bread dough and light cracker. There are also some semi-sweet fruity esters in the mix as well. M: Medium to light bodied with a semi-crisp mouthfeel. Leaves a nice little bitterness on the palate, but itís short lived. O: The was a very malty amber ale, but it was still a pretty good. Refreshing, just like the other SA brews. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-03-2011

A good amber but not the best. I found it a little on the boring side. If you're looking for a beer to drink for your 5.5 hour delay at the Houston airport go for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
