like it and always have! wonderful malt hop character. sometimes the carbonation is a little disappointing. always confused by what they called it and how it tastes. found a couple bottles at the gardenia deli. 8th ave 31st nyc. used to buy it by the case back when i was financially challenged. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2004
tasted a long time ago (95/6?)...Bottle. Kind of reddish amber color and large head with giant soapy bubbles that flee the scene quickly. Smells malty, mildly citrus sweet, and a touch hoppy. Pretty full-bodied, but strange medicinal acidic and rancid buttery taste behind the floral and fruit. Dry, acid/bitter finish. Not great, but cheeseburger makes it better.

Brewed in Saratoga Springs, but by who? New Amsterdam was one of the pioneers of the craft beer movement in New York in the 1980s. It disappeared for a while, and I suppose the brand has been picked up or restarted by someone else. Nice label. Brown pour. A bit of citrus tang and honey in the aroma. Pretty dry, medium-bodied ale, with a touch of esters and some honey in the aftertaste. It is still a good brew.

Pours a two finger cream head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Hoppy nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor has some caramel which is quickly overwhelmed by the hops, finish is typical amber - hoppy and bitter. Bottle is labeled Amber Beer Single Batch but recipe is same as New York Amber from July 2002 - two row toasted malt with cascade and Hallertauer hops. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Decent head with great carbonation. Color is a medium/light amber with good clarity. Aroma is malty with a trace of hops. Flavor is a little thin but well balanced between the grain and the hops. Slight bitter finish from the hops which is nice a leaves a plesant aftertaste. A good all around beer.

From old tasting notes. Orange amber color. Small bubble carbonation. Beige head is ample. Toasted malt nose is fruity and sweet. Flavor is hoppy with a semisweet toasted maltiness. Medium bodied with good balance. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Dark murky amber, medium head; not much lacing. Bread and cookies with a bunch of caramel sweetness and a mostly dry finish. A decent beer to drink with dinner. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Orange/copper color. Average head. Aroma of Saaz and malt. Mild to a fault. Thin and unimpressive. Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2004
A nice malty and sweet beer. Could be a little more powerful, but as it is now it is a good thirst quencher. People went crazy because I started to drink it on the street. What the hell is wrong with that?? Why the fu*k is it not allowed?? rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Malty apple aroma. Clear dark orange color with a small white head. Sweet beginning with a light amount of bitterness. Bitterness fades in the finish leaving a light palate and mild sweetness.
