American Amber Ales are like American Pale Ales but with more body, more caramel richness, and a balance more towards malt than hops (although hop rates can be significant, like in this one). Expect an enormous and delicious beer. Brewed for GABS 2015.

Big aroma of candy and toffee with a sweet first taste that trails off into a balanced bitter finish. Like an American Amber ale meets a double ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bold lime, lemon, orange and candy aroma. Pours a deep hazy red brown with perfect frothy light brown head and lacing. Caramel malts and syrupy texture upfront. Sweet fruit and roasted nut flavours. Some spice in the palate and obvious alcohol lingers. Solid flavours and sturdy body. Very sweet in the end. An intense beer, but very good.

500 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours fantastic ruby red with medium light tan head. Malty aroma. Flavour is big! Big on malt and big on hops. Ignore the reviews from Singapore. Must have been a bad batch or badly handled. This beer is outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (9973) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle at the Good Beer Company, Singapore. Poured a clear medium chestnut brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is woody floral hop, light sweet toffee. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a big toffee caramel malt, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I enjoyed the sample that I had but this beer was pretty much undrinkable in any kind of volume and not just because of the ABV.

kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle shared at The Good Beer Company, Singapore. Cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, with certiorari dark fruit and some light fruity hops. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter. Above medium bodied with alcohol warmth and soft carbonation. Not pleasant.

On tap at Beer Incider. A huge beast of a beer with resin, toffee and biscuit flavours running deep through it and a warming finish.

colui72 (1098) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2016
Pours reddish brown with a medium cream head. Powerful aroma of a fruit basket, with resin, toffee and biscuit. Smooth in the palate, creamy and tasty, with strong biscuit, resin, fruit, caramel and hoppy bitterness, although its character is malty. No taste of alcohol. Lovely "barleywineish" ale

Dervock (1441) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - pours red with a big white head. Aroma is prunes, toffee and hops. Taste us sweet dried fruit up front then a dry lingering finish. Full palate.
