Dark copper color. Aromas of caramelized citrus, fig, and pepper bread toast with a crisp, frothy, dryish medium body and a nice wave of bittering hops on the long finish. An excellent, dry, well balanced food beer with a good dose of hops.

Amber ales can be anywhere from light copper to light brown in color and typically range from 4.5-6.5% in alcohol. They are light-to-medium bodied and are quite malty but not heavily caramelized in flavor. This is a more modern, non-traditional style, and many of these beers borrow heavily from the characteristics associated with more classical styles such as pale ales or bitters. Many North American brewers are now producing ales under this designation. We also classify “red ales” in this category. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail Amber Ale, Rogue American Amber Ale and Stone Levitation Ale.
