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.

Pours a golden amber. Smells malty with a hint of chocolate and coffee The tasteb is nicely balanced. Nutty and malty with nice hops on the finish. Smooth with a litte bite. Quite drinkable. Overall-I enjoyed this one. Defenitely have had better and worse. For a local outfit in Houston, it’s a pretty impressive offering. If your in H town, I recommend you give it a shot just for the heck of it.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle at The BA Lounge in IAH. It pours clear golden - amber with a decent white head. The aroma is fresh, floral, soft, stone fruits, apricot, peachy, toasted grain, light caramel and bread. The taste is crisp, soft bitterness, floral, bitter orange, harsh metallic twang from carbonation, bread, cereal and some lemon with a firmly dry finish. Medium body and moderate+ effervescent carbonation. Easy - drinking, but lacking in a bit of punch. Not so bad, especially for am airport beer.

Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, finish is a bit metallic, kind of like sucking on a penny.

12 ounce bottle. Golden color without a lot of carbonation. Very little aroma. Bitter taste and bitter finish, more like an ESB rather than an amber.

Originally rated on 6/16/08. Slightly disappointed in this offering from st. arnolds. While they normally have good beer i belive that the sixer i got was old. It poured a nice looking body, nice head, decent lacing, good carbonation, it wasnt amber in color, more yellow. It smelled great, better than i expected with notes of pine almost floral. The taste was bitter, and slightly sweet. I will re-review this one again in a few months
