COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Amber Ale, which carries the name 1890 Founderís Ale, is a tribute to the people who first incorporated Grayton Beach. A classic amber ale - balanced malt and hop character.

This amber packs a ton of flavor into a small space. A personal favorite.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2016
The Amberest Ale in All The Land! Or not. I donít know. Its a pretty typical amber ale, though. You know what youíre getting - Caramel, toffee, mildly hoppy finish. Nothing wrong with it.

arn8897 (379) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Pours a cloudy amber color with a khaki head of small tight bubbles. Aromas of malt and some caramel. Taste the same with a little hop bitterness. Nice bitterness at the finish. Not bad but nothing special. Light palate with little to no lacing in the glass.

nearbeer (5239) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2016
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy copper-brown with a quarter-inch of beady bubbles. Nose is dark, rich toffee with bits of espresso, orange and dry cocoa. Tastes of cocoa, orange flesh, earthy caramel apple, toasted pecan and a finish of light citrus zest. Long finish has some prune and tobacco to provide some dryness. Near-medium body has medium carbonation. Has a Scottish Ale fruit and earthy malt tendency that leans sweet, but overall pretty drinkable.

Pours a nice dark orange. Aromas of caramel, hint of fruit and hops. Nice malt taste with a nice hop bitterness.

Cybercat (5569) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2016
Pours clear sepia with a fairly thick and frothy pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but offers up a little malt and hops. Flavor presents bold, woody hops accompanied by toasty malt and subtle caramel and fruit notes. Firm body has good fizz and body, leaving a fruity and woody finish. A good beer for what was a good year - for some, anyway.

chinchill (4763) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2016
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A fairly gentle pour still raised a generous tan head over a hazy, dark amber body; Nice patterned lacing is left on the glass. Aroma: English hops. Moderately strong. Flavor: better than the aroma with nearly as much contribution from the malts as from the hops. Mild hop bitterness. Feel - medium body and medium carbonation Overall: hoppy and earthy for style.

Jabah (456) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2015
This is a solid all-around beer for the style. Maltier than the typical amber.....reminds me sort of a Biere de Garde. I was getting some light chocolate notes to go with the caramel, but deScription says toffee and roasted walnut, which corresponds to the flavors. Has a cloudy medium amber to brown appearance. Mildly hopped to balance out the sweetness. Only sampled a single, but this is one that I could go for a 6-pack.

ljstephenson (250) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Bright brown pour with a moderate tan head. Aroma is slight malt tones, not a strong aroma. Flavor is strong hop bitterness up front, more malt favors after initial taste. Finishes slightly bitter but enough malt to satisfy the amber enthusiast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light berries, and some floral notes. Flavor is malty with some caramel sweetness and a dash of hops. Light/medium body.
