A few years back, some friends and family formed our own "confederation" to enjoy making some delicious ales. In your hand is our first born Amber Ale. With a gentle malty sweeetness, and a perfectly balanced finish, it has that immeasurable ingredient....soul! Formerly known as: Robert Simpson Confederation Amber Ale

Bouteille 355ml étiquetée sous le nom "Flying Monkeys Amber Ale" mais avec le logo pareil à la bouteille Robert Simpson Amber Ale. De couleur ambrée pâle et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés et légèrement rôtis, léger de houblon herbeux et aux notes florales avec des notes de caramel, de noix et de miel. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse et avec de faibles notes crémeuses. Léger goût de grains de malt grillés avec quelques traces fruitées (agrumes) dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un côté plus sucré des grains, rappelant le caramel avec des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon à la fois floral et herbeux (gazon mouillé). Post-goût moyen-court et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux et floral avec quelques traces rôties.

Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from the brewery Consumed: from a pilsner glass Aroma: Smells malty and sweet. Appearance : dark gold with a tinge of red. Lots of head that last to the last drop. Excellent lacing. Taste: a little bitter for my liking. Not much malt or sweet flavour. Very bland other then the hops. Palate : medium body. Sweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: It was not what I was expecting. I would say it tastes closer to a lager or a lagered ale, but not as malty or heavy as an amber. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB.

Enjoyed with my better half at Pub Italia. From bottle, pours very minimal head and has a golden amber appearance. But for an amber ale, doesn’t really share its name. Has a rusty roasted malt aroma, with peppers and nutmeg. Flavours are roasted malts, Saaz hops, citrus, and spices are apparent. Hints of cinnamon and cloves. Slightly warming sensation and drying mouthfeel. Pretty good but prefer the brewery’s IPA output.
