COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Troegs HopBack Amber gets its unique name and taste from the HopBack Vessel in our brewhouse. Packed full of whole flower hops, each batch circulates through the vessel, creating a fresh hoppy aroma, spicy taste and rich caramel note that defines this signature amber ale.

An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hops. The flavor is sweet and again dominated by caramel and hops, while the body is a bit thin.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pous a pretty amber with a slight haze and a small, off-white head. Fruity and freshly hoppy nose. Rather light-bodied with some caramel and a discreet residual sweetness. Flowery, aromatic hop finish. Very delicate for an Amber - a style so often just middle of the road. Thanks to xproudfoot for this one. 150306

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2005
Bottled. Reddish amber, near no head. Lycheelike hop aroma. Roasty and dry with firm, clean, rounded mouthfeel that turns somewhat soapy in the end. Really hoppy, yet fairly balanced. Lingering bitter finish. A solid beer that scores high for being tasty and drinkable, but does not score the extra points for originality.

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Nice amber color. Strong resiny aroma, but the mouthfeel is too thin, poor malt. Of course, strong ending resiny bitterness.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2011
Cask, 5.8%, dry hopped with simcoe. Grassy hop aroma. Hazy red amber colour, no head. The flavour is hoppy, slightly grassy, a bit sweet. Well-balanced. Low carbonation, probably because of the cask.

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Amber and fairly cloudy. Not much head. The aroma has some mild hops and caramel. The palate is more caramel and some light bitterness. A bit chewy. Medium-dry finish, fairly standard mildly hoppy amber like I’ve had a thousand times.
