COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Northwest’s original, unfiltered and dry hopped amber ale. African Amber’s pioneering and innovative style is proof that drink-abilty does not have to be achieved by sacrificing flavor. This beer erupts with a floral, hoppy taste, followed by a well rounded malty middle, finishing with a nicely organic hop flavor. Locally sourced two row grain and a blend of specialty malts give our amber its rich taste. Further complexity is achieved by leaving the beer unfiltered, providing exceptional flavor, as well as giving our amber its unique "cloudy" look. Lastly, we actually place a bag of fresh, locally grown, Yakima valley hops in each keg creating what has become the original, cult classic, northwest amber ale.

Before all these New Aged Guys came in with their Amber Ales that are really just IPAs, this was THE Amber Ale. Happy to finally try it. Growler shared by my Uncle Peter. Pours hazed orange with an off white head. Light sweet malty base, some toast, mild fruity hop bitterness, and a balanced finish. Quite drinkable.
