COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Donít be fooled by Daylight Amberís easy going name. It is a bit more aggressive than the name implies. Daylight Amber has the upfront bitterness of an IPA, but that bitterness fades into a malt body influenced by caramel and toasted flavors, which are more typical of an Amber Ale. Too firmly hopped to be a pure Amber and too malty to be a considered an IPA, Daylight Amber represents the best of both worlds.

Tap. Pours clear copper Amber, medium beige head that dissipates fairly quickly with decent lacing. Aroma is malty, rye, Bready, some grass. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter. Strong rye notes, some grass, a bit of lingering bitterness. Medium body. Interesting.

Nice dark color, tight foam head, like a bed pillow. So many wonderful subtleties in this one: coffee, caramel, light smoke. Well-balanced. A wonderful beer for a hot day, or a late fall afternoon. Tasty.

Bottle as a wedding gift. Pours a copper color with a cream colored head. Aroma of candied orange and caramel. Taste is light bitterness with a bready grainy aftertaste. Very drinkable and unique.

brokensail (13201) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 7, 2015
On tap @ Track 7. Rich amber colored beer with an off-white head. Sweet caramel dominates the nose. Some bread, toast, and floral hops. A hint of burnt sugar. Thereís a nice sweetness to the flavor, but not a whole lot of balance/bitterness. Needs a bit more hop character. Some grass and citrus, at least. Okay.

"Nice Irish red/American red hybrid. Nutty & malty with caramel and chocolate, but with ample citrusy hops to provide a pretty nice balance and complexity."

Bottle (Bottled 10/16/2013) poured into a tulip. Pours a dark amber color with a half inch off-white head that fades quickly. Light lacing. Aromas of spices, toast, grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit. Tasting notes of grapefruit citrus, caramel, malts, bitter hops, light toast, a bit of pine/resin. Malt forward beer, medium-light body with a semi-dry finish.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Nugget in Vacaville CA. I was surprised at the amount of hop. There was a good amount of hop, but it did level off towards the back end. Great flavor and nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a clear, but dark amber colored body. The aroma is a strong lemon and orange smell blend. Pretty good. The taste is moderately bitter moving to a sharp bitter finish. There is a burnt malt note at the very end too, which makes for an interesting finish. The texture is soft and bubbly with moderate carbonation. I like it, itís a bit different that most amber ales.
