COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To celebrate brewing our Amber Ale for 20 years, we are releasing three 60 bbl Amber Ale batches over the next few months, each dry hopped with a different hop variety (regular Amber Ale is not dry hopped). The first release will hit stores Monday, July 21 and is dry hopped with Liberty hops. This is the finishing hop that we use on Amber Ale already and is known for its soft, floral character. So essentially this will be a slightly more intense version of the classic Amber Ale. The hop aroma pairs well with the maltiness that comes from the pale and caramel malts used in the beer. The light fruitiness is the result of our proprietary house yeast, a signature of many of our beers. Look for this extremely limited release at grocery and liquor stores in our 22 oz bomber bottles.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong floral hop and grass. Nice bitter hop with pine and citrus, easy to drink. This was best over the other two one offs.

Should have done a side-by-side with regular Amber but didn’t have one handy. Still pretty mellow but flavorful. Caramel, floral and a touch of fruitiness.

if i’d had this 10 years back, it would have blown my mind .. . dark tan .. mild foam .. . liberty comes through nicely, subtle .. . not sure if this is an improvement per say, but it does offer an alternate to the situation .. . . i dont hate this, i don’t love it it but not really digging this.. i don’t even have a shovel anymore, or land as a matter of fact... one day though, i’ll show em!! i’m gonna be somebody!!

I really didn’t expect much, but this poured a gorgeous amber with a medium head. In the mouth, there was really nice malt. To be said it was dry hopped is an over statement. This was a really wonderful amber with great maltiness and at $3.99 each, I will buy all that I can.

Rating #1500 for my hometown brewery. Bomber. Pours almost crystal clear with a smaller white head. Nose is milder maltiness with a hint of hops and metallic aroma. Flavors of milder hops, grassy, and bitterness. Easy drinker-might look for a couple more of these while they are still fresh.

Clear light copper pour. Quick dissipating head. Aroma is bready and mild yeast. Aroma finishes with medium hops. Flavor is similar, but stronger with citrus and floral hops. Crisp mild sweet finish. ---Rated via iPhone

Pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of biscuit malt and light toffee with some orange from the hops. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of orange and floral hop character as well as some toffee and biscuit malt. There is a low bitterness level since there is quite a bit of malt character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
