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.

A nice golden amber coloring with an aroma that is definately floral. This beer has a taste that is very smooth but also offers some bitter hopness. A very good beer that I definately recommend trying.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
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.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a nice auburn with a creamy white head. I couldn’t detect much nose, and I expected to. Some caramel, malty toffee taste backed up by a good bit of hops, but not as much as I expected or hoped for.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Clear amber, thin head. Caramel hop and toasted malt aroma with some earth. Caramel flavor with a low hop compliment. Has some perfume and metallic notes. Rather watery in body. Finishes a bit dirty. Not the greatest, but I could see how when very fresh and on draught it could be quite good.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2007
12 oz bottle-Pours a dark amber coloring. Hoppy aroma, heavy malt flavoring a little too heavy for my liking on regular drinking. Medium bodied average carbonation.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2008
The beer has a slightly dark amber body topped off with a pretty thick white head. It has aromas of orange from what seems to be fresh hop. There is a very floral flavor with hints of green tea.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2008
355 ml bottle. Red/brown body with a descent beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and fruity hops. Well-balanced, sweet malt, some caramel and a sharp clean hop flavor. Straight forward well made amber.
