Amber pour with thin head. Aroma of malts, caramel, and apple. Flavor was sweet malts, mild fruit and a surprising amount of hops to give it a bitter finish. I thought it got better as I drank more of it.

Bottle: Clear amber in color with an off white head. Aroma, sweet malts, some toffee, a little citrus, floral. Flavor, toffee, light caramel notes, sweet with some mild hop flavors as well, some fruits. Not bad.

I wasn’t sure what style beer Weyerbacher House Ale was even after I sampled it. Amber Ale will work for the style then. Copper colored body, with cardboard, earth, vegatable and caramel flavors lurking in this lightly carbonated beer. I’m assuming this middle of the road amber is an attempt to add a Weyerbacher line to some borderline craft beer bars.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6827) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a huge cream colored head. The aroma was sweet and lightly spicy with a light apple undertone. The flavor was tart and tangy, bitter and had a moderate floral and fruity hop presence. Seemed more like an ESB to me.

A blah amber from one of my favorite brewers. Pour was a nice deep amber but no head. Aroma was of hops and toffee with caramel in and out. Taste was sticky and caramelly with a nice hop undertone in the aftertaste. This just doesn’t have the bite of a good amber. Weyerbacher is 1 for 2 tonight.

Bottle. Has the color of a slightly tarnished penny... a one finger head that dies almost immediately. Aromas are kind of a honey/malt sweetness with just a little bit of a hops presence. Flavor is fairly malt heavy... a big toffee/caramel punch that really just sits there and doesn’t develop. You might be able to argue for some subtle nut-flavored undercurrents and a little bit of a hops spicing near the tail end, but this is mostly just a malt beer.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Amber color with a light malty aroma. Flavor is a light honey-malt, lightly hopped amber that is unremarkable. Why does Weyerbacher make such mediocre beers when they make anything with less than 8% abv?
