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

Cask condition handpull at Montefiore Arms, Ramsgate. It’s a pretty good, sliightly fruity bitter. Good hop on finish. Quite rich in mouth

TBone (18225) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2009
[email protected] Pale amber color, small white head. Toffee, diacetyl in the nose. Rusty malty flavor, some caramel. Woody hops in the aftertaste.

FatPhil (17079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 21, 2014
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Looks like a typical cask bitter, but with a tighter, almost creamy head. Smells like a classic leafy bitter - some nice dry undergrowthy hops, some almost perfumey aspects too. Tastes similar, but is a bit less interesting. Just simple slightly sweet malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Easy lunchtime or session bitter.

imdownthepub (15331) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Very fresh, I was there when it was pulled through and it showed, pleasant bittersweet hoppy notes on a thinnish, biscuity base. Some orange citrus notes and a honeyed touch in the close. Pleasant enough.
