COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Owyhee Amber Ale is an easy drinking, amber beer for the masses. Brewed with 2-row barley, Munich, and crystal malts, this amber beer is a cleaner, crisper version of an ale reminiscent of an amber lager beer. Owyhee Amber is a true session beer as refreshing as a breath of air in the vast mountain range that it was named after.

Pours a hazy copper color with white head. Aroma is caramel, toasty, grainy, and a grassy hop finish. Aroma is malty, toasty, grain, and bitter grassy finish.

LinusStick (3299) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2008
A nice amber ale that hits on all cylinders except aroma. Could pick up slight grassy hops and a bit of caramel, but not very strong. Pour was a cloudy dirty orange with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was nice and hoppy. Strong grassy hops in the front with a solid caramel malt backbone. Perfect balance of bitter then sweet.

golden amber hue with a big laced up head, sweet malt nose, rich nutty flavor, well balanced bitters, creamy mouthfeel, floral flavors, well done

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2007
From a 22oz. bottle poured a bright copper-amber body. Big fluffy white head that dissipated to a small creamy top with magnificent snowy lacing. Nose of citrus piny hops and robust sharp malts. Watery but carbonated mouth feel with a nice hoppy, grapefruity finish. Tangy, mildly tart, and big bitter finish. Really nice!

bhensonb (14486) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Strong malty caramel aroma with some floral hop. Slightly hazy, orange/red tinged amber coloer. The off-white head was enthusiastic but left rapidly. It did try to lace. Near medium in body with firm carbonation. Starts with caramel and floral malts. Finish is nicely balanced. Its really good, and somewhat approximates an ESB.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Pours amber with a tall white head. Caramel malts, lightly toasty and warm, with a hoppy finish. Nice all around amber, though like others have said, not one that stands out in the sea of them around here.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Bomber: Caramel, toasted grain, and light, earthy hop aroma; creamy palate with a slightly vegetal detraction; burnt suagr maltiness with a barely perceptable piney-earthy hop finish. Yea, its an amber.

pinkzambia (1921) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle: Amber color with a medium bodied off-white head. Basic malty aroma with some mild pumpkin spice and something a tiny bit sour. The taste is fairly balanced like a good amber with the light brown sugar/coke sweetness combined with a semi-bitter flavor. The feel is thin and not too bad to drink. Sure, its not Mac & Jacks but for Ontario, OR - its probably da bomb.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Pours amber with a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime and sticky lacing finally reduce to a lasting creamy spattered canopy. Solid aromas of salty baked biscuits. Nice! Medium nectar w/ good carbonation and a nice creamy texture. A big malty backbone supports a defined piney hop component. Nuances of biscuits, leather, cocoa, and citrus rind. The actual flavor intesity is rather mild giving this brew a very mellow nature. The finish has lingering piney resin on it and a persistant baked biscuit goins ons. Overall: The complexities are subtle but present and the beer drinks good. I keep thinking about my grandmas biscuits. Sonny ?

IndianaRed (4021) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle pours a slear light amber with a modest sandy colored head with blocky lacing. Sllightly sweet woody malt aroma and moderate in most respects. Balanced I suppose, just unremarkable.
