COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

Otter Amber was first brewed for the trade in March 2009 as a mid gravity beer to complete the Otter range. Over the last 10 years the ’mid gravity’ beer has become popular with drinkers, delivering a reasonable strength with great flavour. This gave us the opportunity to develop a really special beer, which within a month of its launch, won its first award in Newton Abbot at SIBA’s prestigious Tuckers Maltings beer festival. Otter Amber has all the qualities of other Otter beers but with a more complex mix of aroma and flavour.
Appearance: Beautifully polished Amber
Aroma: Amber’s nose has a lovely blend of citrus fruit and spice.
Taste: The special Cara malt and carefully selected hops in Amber deliver a finely balanced bitter flavour, with hints of tropical fruit and spice sometimes even an impression of ginger.
Hops used: Northern Brewer, Styrian Goldings, Willamette

Fra cask på Cornish Inn, Gunnislake 26 Sep 16. Aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Lavt kritthvitt skum. Svak aroma. Antydning til karamell. Smaken det samme. Bittersøt etter hvert.

Half pint, cask ale at Cornish Inn in Gunnislake. Amber-gold coloured body. Filmy layer, poor lacing. Toffee and grass on the nose. Caramel malty flavours with citric notes, lightly spiced. Bittersweet endnotes. Easy going. Very standard stuff (Tamar Valley Rail Ale Trail, 26.09.2016).

Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is biscuity and light grassy with notes of lemon peel and straw. Taste is also lightly grainy and grassy with notes of grass and straw, biscuit and caramel. Light bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, decent

Mr_Pink_152 (5433) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Tried at the Tap and Spile, Lincoln. Golden to amber colour with an off white head. Not so much an amber as a caramely golden beer with a touch of citrus.

BlackHaddock (7585) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Cask half-pint in The Bloomfield Brewhouse, Blackpool on 8th Sep 2016. Guess what colour it was: yip, amber. Fruity and slightly citrusy in the nose, more fruits in the taste and a mild bitterness in the finish, light spicy undertones. Liked it.
