COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Ales are mostly an American invention. And with its beautiful copper color and subtle hop aroma, our Redwood Flats Amber is our traditional take on a modern American classic. Featuring a unique blend of American hops and malts, Redwood Flats Amber is bold and assertive, with a strongly hoppy flavor that’s easy to drink and even easier to love.

Hey, I thought I had this before, guess not. From a bottle with a twist off cap. Looks clear and somewhat copper in color. Smell is waffing alarming malts. Thin creamy head. Yez, malt carries over to the flavor but it is not over the top. Tries to be assertive but then falls back behing the malts. Goes down fairly easy and never really gets in your face. Better than expected. Probably would appeal to many lager lovers. Well behaved with a gentlemans touch. Overall, not bad. Most likely one of the better ambers I’ve tasted. Nice sizzle on the palate. Pretty good but not as good as North Peak Siren Amber Ale, Olde Main Long Face, Atlanta Laughing Skull Amber Ale (2009 - present), or McKenzie Unicorn Amber Ale

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Reddish copper, thin ring of foam. Faint aroma, I’m gonna say caramel. Caramel flavors, too. Crisp, dry finish.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2012
bottle. Clear copper with fully fleeting soapy head. Light spicy hoppy aroma but mostly just one dimensional sweet malt. The flavor is malt sweet with a light spicy bitterfinish. There’s a metallic character throughout. I want to like this because I drank so much Henry Weinhards in high school when it was $4 a six pack. Those were the days.

Pours coppery amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, some toasty notes, floral and a bit of a metallic twang.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle. Light hazy translucent amber with little to no head. Fruity, light hop character, toasted malt nose-pleasant enough. Flavor is lightly fruity, with a mild grassy bitterness, and a strong toasted malt finish. Not as bad to me as some of the ratings suggest. It certainly isn’t a bright and full flavored ’American Amber’ but rather comes across like a more restrained and subtle English ale.

2.2
scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice red amber with a thin light tan head that fades quick. Taste is of caramel, malt, some fruit, some hops, some pine and a bit of resin. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink and a pretty good beer overall.

2.4
Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Name seems familiar...ah yes Full Sail’s retro/discount line. The aroma of this one is very subtle floral and somewhat tinny. Nice looking copper color. Tastes vaguely bitter and soapy. Light watery body, easy for quaffing. Apparently an attempt to make the least offensive ale on earth.

2.5
maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours an amber color with fairly little head to it. Not a lot to the nose of this, and very little taste, too. Unremarkable beer all around.

2.1
heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. A thin khaki colored head tops a rich copper hued brew. The nose is sweet with pears and notes of citrus. I also get a distinct floral quality. The smells are mostly about the hops and not the malt. This taste of caramel and light leather. There is also some pear, especially in the finish. Toward the end of the bottle I felt like I was eating hay. The body is low on carbonation making it almost lifeless. Boring and one dimensional. This is a halfhearted attempt at an amber.
