American Ales Amber Ale has a perfect soft malt character with a rounded mouth feel which is enhanced and held together by floral hop character with pungent tones of pine resin and subtle earthy undertones. It has an ABV of 5.4% with a light brown colour and a fluffy white head. It has a soft rounded malt aroma subtly floral with slight spiciness.
Created as another twist on the American Pale Ale this Amber Ale takes all the hop attitude of the pale ale and adds another dimension to it by adding malt character. Originating in the Pacific north west this is a fairly new style of beer that is finding favour with beer lovers throughout the US. With hops from both New Zealand and the States characterised by their hard hitting spicy and pink grapefruit flavour and aroma the maltyness of this beer works beautifully.
