COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Amber is a beer with a great balance of malt and hops, and has an exquisite aroma provided by fresh Cascade hops. It is the perfect beer for someone who wants more flavor than the Golden but isn’t ready for the darkness of a Brown Ale.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Sampler at the brewpub - Poured a reddish amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with slight citrus and some malt... aroma not that strong. Flavor is slightly sour, some hops (citrus) and some fruity malts. Again, flavor is not that pronounced. Jut OK...

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Draught. Nose is robust cascade hops which slightly enticing to a fresh brew, light fruits linger in the background. One dimensional but decent aroma. Pours a muddy brown color with decent head retention. Initial taste is lights fruits, malt character and caramel. Mid palate to finish has a good hop character. Palate duration is above average. Decent head retention but average.
