The Red Amber Ale is crafted using a high percentage of caramel specialty malts, that provide the deep reddish-amber hue, and a nutty flavor profile.

"Another non-descript red going for the caramel/toffee/hop balance. A little more bitter than some reds, but doesn’t do anything at all that stands out. Just ok."

osiderworld (12) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 21, 2014
At brewery for lunch break. No aroma. Flavor is way to roasts for Amber and butterscotch flavor. Stuck to tongue...just unpleasant. Needed to eat their winderfull fries with tons of salt to wash it down.

crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
A toasty amber ale. It doesn’t bring much else to the table. It is exactly what they found in their first homebrew booklet.
