COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Amber Ale combines the timelessness of European ales as well as the innovativeness of American breweries, making it a uniquely new world take on a classic style. Our Rad Red Amber Ale’s extra hop kick takes this tradition of innovation a step further. Its solid hop presence, which comes from 100% American hops, is balanced by crunchy Caramel Malt, giving it a perfect amber color and chewy malt character. We kept the rest simple, using only Upland’s own yeast ale blend and pure southern Indiana water for this drinkable yet refreshingly radical brew.

Rated on 9-19-2009 at Mad Anthony Brewing Company OctoBEERfest in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer pours a medium sized ivory head with a lengthy retention, transparent gold body, visible carbonation, and excellent lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The Taste is bitter, caramel malt, citrus, pine hops and crisp. The Palate is mostly smooth and lightly fizzy. This beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is easy to drink, refreshing, not overly hoppy tasting, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Sample at Pint House during a tap takeover. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, floral hops and pine. The finish is mildly bitter with a short piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

b3shine (5826) - Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a fairly transparent amberish orange with thin off-white head. Smells and tastes lightly sweet and hoppy with some caramel notes. Average on the palate. An easy drinking amber, but could be more flavorful.

DrSilverworm (6943) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2013
16oz on tap at Dewey’s in Oakley. Clear orangered color. Good thin off-white head. Nice, thick creamy lace. Medium body. Good, smooth lighter carbonation. Nice creamy texture. Caramel malt, and a satisfying amount of spicy hop. Light tropical fruit in the aroma. Nice lightly spicy, light bitter taste. Mostly sweet, though. Very drinkable, smooth, satisfyingly hoppy amber-red ale.

Lemke10 (826) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a semi-clear reddish/orange color with a decent and long lasting head of light brown foam. Scent has malts mixed with some spices that stand out the most. Taste has a mix of burnt malts and mildly bitter hops to it. A little bit of sweet caramel hints as well. Could be a little heavier in the texture and is just slightly watery. A decent find from a pretty well known Indiana brewery. Can’t wait to try more of their stuff!
