COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by Daylight Amber’s 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.

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

"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."

GenDV138 (1785) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2014

Fatehunter (1384) - 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, it’s a bit different that most amber ales.

Dodgrblu (627) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
5 ounce sampler at Flaming Grill Cafe; the commercial description is spot on. Thin, replenishing head, good effervescence. But for the ABV, very sessionable.
