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.

Amber, intense in colour and with a persistent head. Intriguingly aromatic bouquet. Soft and balanced, with enjoyable toasty notes, hints of red fruits and a slight spiciness from refermentation in the bottle, which adds even more interest.

- Hazelnut foam, abundant and compact, persistent, followed by beautiful Bruxelles lace.
- Amber ale with brown reflections, opalescent
- Round and hot body, medium carbonation.
- The olfactory intensity is good, characterized by clear hints of mature fruit, dried fruit, yeast, roasted (chocolate) and caramel. Scents of a classic panettone with raisins, fairly typical of real brown Belgian ales.
- The palate reveals a slight bitterness from the roasted malt, covered by the alchol notes and sugar candy.
- In aftertaste still feel the notes tasted on the palate, intense but not too long, offering a beer from the delicate final and sweetly easy to drink. A beer richly perfumed, intense, warm and full-bodied.

oc4111 (119) - USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours a very dark copper that shows highlights when held up to the light. Very active head that disappears quickly and but doesnt leave any lacing. Aroma is cherries, yeast and sugar. Taste was not as intense as the aroma which was a little disappointing. The carbonation threw me off at the first sip. Not sure what to make of it. Very dry finish. Interesting beer. Might have to revisit it to get a better grasp if it.

rumore (378) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 11, 2017
From 75cl bottle at Carlos Pizzeria, Rimini, Italy. Pours brown with linked foam. Aroma is malty and with an alcoholic feeling. Not much else. Body is medium with medium-low carbonation. Taste is predominantly sweet, with maybe a little bit of spiciness in the final.

Schlumpfhunter (179) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2017
Farbe: braun Schaum: gut, erst dicht smig, lsst dann aber schnell nach. Nase: gersteter Malz, karamellig, Zuckerrbe. Hauch von Cola dadurch dass es auch bitter ist. Geschmack: feine Kohlensure, ein Tick zu wenig. Rund im Mund, zwar deutlich s, aber ein gutes bitteres Gegengewicht ist da, so dass die Se erst im Abgang dominiert, karamellig, zum Nachgeschmack hat man sogar Waldhonig auf der Zunge.

GoufCustom (1913) - HONG KONG - OCT 21, 2016


355ml long neck bottle bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Looks: Clear copper brown colour with very thin trace of yeast particles; Half finger head and off-white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Very good sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet malt, with strong banana, dark fruits, strong caramel, vanilla, strong bubble gum, light chocolate, sugar, bread, strong Bel yeast and very light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet malt, with caramel, light toffee, light dark fruits, light floral, candi sugar, biscuits, strong Bel yeast, fair lemon and light bitter grassy hops.

Body: Medium body. Thin and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly good maltyness in thin background, Basic caramel and light toffee with light dark fruits, light floral and hints of chocolate. Candi sugar sweetness is fair as most of it thin out the beer. Fairly yeasty with touch of lemon to round. Pretty good!

Hoppiness: Very light grass in nose. Light floral, light lemon and light grass in taste; Bitterness is light for an abrupt, very low astringent sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Fairly Sweet and easy to mouth.

Comments: This one tastes somewhere between a Dubbel and a Brune. Its competent but all the main characters seems to be missing quite a bit - body is too slim, lack of dark malty roast and chocolates and silkyness. Only the Bel yeast and nice fruity aroma being the bright spots here. Its neat, but can be a lot better.

beertopgun (1) - FINLAND - AUG 28, 2016 does not count
Very nice botte design made me grab this one. The refermentation after taste is apparent and sugary, soft on the palate the malt is clear and tastes clean. Some chocoate tast I noticed also somewhere far far away.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-rtliche Farbe mit sehr guter, anhaltender Schaumbildung - Noten nach Trockenobst, Malz und Karamell, aber leider auch etwas zu heftig nach Alkohol - die Carbonisierung ist mir einfach zu hoch - geschmacklich kommen dann noch leichte Nuancen von Honig hinzu, aber auch hier scheint mir der Alkohol zu sehr durch - der Abgang besteht dann aus einer alkoholisch-herb-wssrigen Bitternis Fazit: Einfach zu alkohollastig

Pinky77 (248) - - AUG 13, 2016
Bevuta in bottiglia. Il colore di un bel oro ramato carica, quasi marrone. Schiuma di colore beige fine ma non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, di frutti rossi, zucchero di canna caramellato, miele e qualche nota agrumi. Sentori di tostato di cacao e crema al whisky. Al palato risulta morbida e amara. Purtroppo il corpo risulta un p debole, non molto carbonata.
