Smooth, malty and hoppy Amber Ale... Really delicious texture on hand pump and showing nice citrussy hop and bright bitter notes.

Part of a tasting rack at the brewpub. Pours copper with an off-white head. Very simple, straightforward American amber ale, but very good. Citrus hop nose, with malt and caramel. More citrus hops in the flavor, along with citrus, malt, pine, and resin. Light body, well-balanced, and not oppressively hoppy. A nice crisp hoppy finish. Good take on this style.

Yum, American hops - lovely grapefruity citrus hops on the nose with rich toffee malt. Burnished red in the glass resplendant under a cloud of foam that lasts till the end of the pint. Didnít find this assertively hoppy, just nicely mellow with a lovely malt finish that moves towards sweet before the bittering hosp clean everything up. Had this once before and remember being slightly underwhelmed, but this was excellent last night.

Hops! Hoooooppppppsss! A generous waft of hop aroma hits you before the pint has even finished pouring. A fluffy enduring head and a gorgeous copper red colour greets the eye. Lush malts and bittering hops are involved in the initial assault on the palate which then takes hold of the senses and wrings them out. A touch creamy on the finish and good mouthfeel all round. I am spectacularly lucky that The Twisted Hop is my local, but this is bias with qualification. This beer is memorable (especially in its third yearly release). In fact Iím surprised I havenít rev iewed it before.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2009 A treat - gravity fed from a cask on the bar at Galbraiths (Auckland). Pours an orange-tinted amber with a filmy head. Plenty of fruity hop on the nose. A big hophead in the mouth - piney,resiny and a hoppy tartness. But i get some lovely chocolate from the malt as well. More hoppy bite in the finish as well. A treat indeed.
