COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AMA is a transatlantic brewing project that carries the signature of Amarcord Beer, with its origins in a meeting in New York with Garrett Oliver, the Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster, and the internationally famous designer Milton Glaser, amongst other things the inventor of the "I love NY" logo.

Bright gold in colour, with a compact foamy head. Fruity and floral notes from the use of orange-blossom honey and slow refermentation in the bottle. Great elegance, harmony and balance on the palate. Every sip finishes with the tang of hops, with the invitation to continue the experience.

- Beautiful snow-white foam, creamy, dense, persistent.
- Light yellow opalescent beer.
- Good olfactory intensity and definitely attractive its aromatic finesse. The orange blossom honey is revealed clearly in the nose to medium-high temperatures, but at serving temperature the fresh feeling citrus and sour perfume prevails.
- Medium body and considerable effervescence.
- The palate feels notes of fresh citrus, very present the citric acid. As it warms it loads sweet aroma of honey and barley malt. A fresh finish, rich in citrus notes, a refined dryness in the end. The bitter content matches with the other marked flavours (acid, citrus).
- Aftertaste releases long and winding notes of fresh citrus that combine with sugary notes and malt.
- A refreshing beer , fragrant, well-balanced the sweet-acid notes, ending moderately dry invokes the next sip.

willisread (3250) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from Seiyu 150 yen with a best buy date of June 2016. Value is excellent. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Pours a fairly clear orangish golden color with a huge off-white soapy head that dissipates and leaves a nice rim around the beer. Very floral notes of apple, pear and orange with some clover honey as well. Light to light-medium body with lively carbonation. Very bright and floral on the palate with a nice dry and lightly sweet finish (the honey I suppose). Very solid Belgian.

bartlebier (3931) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
355ml bottle, bb? - from Mondial de la Bire, Mulhouse 2014. Beautiful design and label, on this rare occasion mercifully to be had for less than a modernistic design premium. - Honey golden, white bready pour, good lacing. Some herbal orange blossom, wild honey, special pale ale malt aromatics and a tiny whiff of alcohol - more delicate than many an ester-pungent BE Belgian ale. Flavour is nothing less than spectacularly subtle, delicate (again), fluffily layered: diluted mandorla biscotto, indeed orange peel and honey blossom, gorgeous German noble hop profile, integrated like a miniature gastronomic dish (caramel cantuccini dunked in aranciata, jazeker). Just the right strength, excellent drinkability and silky mouthfeel like a corduroy caress by your favourite long-gloved Italian cornuta. Lingering pollen-floral finish. Wish Id opened this sooner...
