12oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a small off white head. Nice citrus aroma of orange and grapefruit, with hints of wheat and honey. Taste of orange, grapefruit, pale malt, and lots of honey.

Hop Amber ale is one of my favorites, especially for a hopper red ale. Troegs puts out a number of quality products and this is up there near the top of my list for their beers.

floral aromas dominate this copper colored amber ale. lacing is good but doesn’t linger, head is minimal. initial sweet maltiness is followed up by the floral hops which give it a nice light bitterness which doesn’t linger. I think its a great beer for ipa lovers who maybe want to enjoy another style and still feel a little bit of an ipa’s bitterness.

Bouteille 330 ml. Achetée au Half Time (Poughkeepsie). Robe ambrée et collet beige. Au nez, un bouquet fortement houblonnée. En bouche, l’amertume du houblon est bien tempérée par le malt caramélisé. Sans aucune doute l’une des meilleures Amber ales que j’ai bues jusqu’à maintenant.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from sampler pack. This was my favorite of the four styles. Pours a nice, dark amber. Aroma has plenty of dark fruit, floral hops, caramel and cereal malts, and light toast. Flavor was great; sweet malts and dark fruit esters expected from an amber, but the nice addition of hops sets it apart.
