Amber color. Bright, fruity aromas of fruit leather and honeyed lemon scone with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, interesting, short kiwi, bibb lettuce, and honey butter finish. A solid quaffer.

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.
