Brilliant copper red color. Dank, herbal aromas and flavors of grilled pineapple and grapefruit, pinecone, and honeyed toast with a round, vibrant, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, peppery greens, radish, and roasted nuts finish. A vibrantly hoppy and quenching amber ale.

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.
