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.

la_monica (7) - ITALY - MAR 31, 2015 does not count
birra ad alta fermentazione dal colore giallo chiaro leggermente opalescente, schiuma pannosa. profumi freschi/citrici/ che ritroviamo anche in bocca: inizialmente acidula e fresca, viraggio sull’agrumato leggermente abboccato (dal miele), finale secco, "simile" ad una blanche . eccellente prodotto, strepitoso aperitivo

ASPETTO: biondo limpido con schiuma bianca, abbastanza fine e persistente. AROMA: buon aroma di floreale, fruttato, con delle inaspettate ma piacevolissimo note di tabacco. GUSTO: molto buona. Sentori fruttati predominanti insieme a del mieloso. Leggero agrumato.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
355ml bottle, bb? - from Mondial de la Bière, 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 I’d opened this sooner...

Rodriguez (357) - Quito, ECUADOR - DEC 29, 2014
A golden beer with high carbonation. Low head retention. Medium body. Spicy aroma, seems to be fermented with wit yeast. It has some honey residual sweetness. A good beer, next time will pair it with pizza, or something Italian. Simple but excellent.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle at home, 05/05/13. Streaming gold with a fine slim collar. Juicy banana, clove and bubblegum esters on nose. Spritely juicy stuff with a perfumed banana, spice and hefeweizen thing happening. The Italians are devils at sneaking honey under the radar- it’s beautifully integrated here. Good brew.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
This is a beer that builds and builds. Off the jump it tastes like a really standard Belgian pale ale with an average hop profile but there is a palate coating feeling there that allows the honey, hibiscus, and rose hips to come through. Nice and complex when you pay attention. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle at Arlanda airport, nice surprise. Clear golden with white head. Aroma malty, yeast, dry grain notes, sweet and herby. Taste is medium sweet, estery, grain, herbs, flowers, nice bitter bite in the finish. Nice!
