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

On cask at the Grosvenor. Appearance - amber and slightly murky. Decent head. Nose - toffee with a faint biscuity note. Some spice. Taste - more toffee and biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - decent if uninspiring.

jjsint (2993) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber/yellow, very clear. Faint scent of honey with a bit of orange and biscuit. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish, simple but clean and wonderfully refreshing. More than the sum of its parts.

3.3
tombyars (1683) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin tight creamy white head. Crisp sharp aroma of green apples. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit base with tart gooseberry fruit in evidence. Dry hop resins give a floral bite to the robust earthy aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with dry vinous oak cask notes with hints of marmalade in there. Reminded me of Inveralmond Ossian? A decent Amber Ale and well recommended.

3.5
wheresthepath (2315) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Cask at the Falcon (JDW),High Wycombe. Golden-amber with a moderate white head. Tastes of orange with a little grapefruit, good bright fresh flavours. Well balanced and tasty, Otter do seem to know what they’re doing.
