COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Amber Ale is a medium bodied beer with good hop character. The aroma is moderately hoppy, moderately malty, and lightly yeasty. The beer’s texture starts off crisp and effervescent, and becomes a little thicker – and perhaps even chewier – toward the finish. Goes great with a barbecued burger, which brings out some of the beer’s woodsy and earthy notes.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a smallish white head. Nose is a little toasty with a bit of bread in there. Taste is quite malty with the toasting elements coming through. Not a huge fan of this.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento, grassy, nothing to this one. Slight breadiness on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber pour with a smaller head. Dusty earthy nose. There’s actually a little hop profile on the taste - not bad. Palate is so-so.

August 3rd, 2011 - Twisted Pine’s Amber is pretty common in Colorado’s beer stores. It’s hard to stand out as an amber, but the drinker knows that the brewer knows this. I always hope that some ingenious head brewer has found a way to craft an amber that pushes the boundaries of the style in a way that makes it my go-to for the style. While Twisted Pine’s American Amber Ale may not be a Kuhn-esque revolution for ambers, it’s a solid offering. In color it is, not surprisingly, a light amber, with touches of orange and pink touching the edges of the glass. The aroma is deep and nutty, and even features some roasted walnut, with a nice malt extract base, and a touch of pine. The rich caramel flavor of the malt extract extends to the flavor too, giving this a depth that suggests a richness of ingredients at an affordable price. It features a nice depth, but nothing too dark for a meal, or even for casual summer drinking. No bells and whistles, this is a good, flavorful brew that doesn’t skimp on the taste.
