Our British Amber is a careful blend of five types of grain and a generous use of English Kent Golding hops for a big malty taste with a lovely floral aroma.

Amber color with a thin head. Slight cherry aroma that is quite nice. It has a grainy taste, but more like fresh grain from the field, not something that’s been in a silo for 8 months. More berries too. This is actually pretty okay.

I found this to be incredibly tasty. A very good amber that was slightly overhopped but that is the way I like it. Pours ... guess what amber in the color with a nice frothy head, and some great lacing. Flavor is balanced , but really hopped up with a delciate balancing act by the malts. This is without a doubt the best thing to come out of Hops.

Good malt/hop mix in the nose. Creamy, off-white head producing excellent lace. Moderately bitter and medium bodied. Good strong ESB-like flavor. A good session brew. This may be Hops' best or perhaps it just tasted that much better than the Nut Brown I had right before it.

Its a pretty looking beer and overall probably one of your best bet when going to Hops. It reminds me a bit of the sam smith pale ale but with some more body actually. Had 4 plates of bbq with a 20 oz serving of this beer. One characteristic hops has is that so far 3 of its beer has this pure grain wheat germ in youre biting into a handful of fresh malt. Not much aroma, reminds me of my home brew. simple, pleasing, not terribly complex but its A OK.

Nuffield (4106) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Hazy chestnut appearance, retaining traces of a dense head. Gentle aroma, mildly fruity, not suggesting any great burst of anything, although the Golding hops come out plainly in the tasting. A bit heavily carbonated for the style. The taste diminishes into a rather hollow ’post-beer’ blasé, with only bitterness to remind you from whence it came. (at Eden Prairie, MN location)
