Created as another twist to the tail of the American pale ale the Amber ale takes all the hop attitude of the pale ale and adds another dimension with added malt character.
Originating in the Pacific North west this is a fairly recent style that is finding favour with beer aficionados is now enjoyed all over the United states.
Dont be fooled by its name this may be an amber beer but we've packed it full of hops from two parts of the globe! Pacific Jade from New Zealand, Cluster and Summit from the United States. These hops are characterised by their hard hitting spicy and pink grapefruit flavour, giving a superb aroma working beautifully with the amount of malt weve been able to pack into this beer.
Young's Specialised Dark ale yeast strain also helps to lift this beer from the ordinary accentuating both the malt complexity and the hop character.
The beer pours a fantastic amber hue with a rocky off white head, hop character oozes from the glass giving you a heady mix of spicy black currents, pine sap and grapfruit
On the palate this beer shows its mettle effortlessly medling the juicy caramel and toffee malt characters that belie its strength with a fantastic and complex hop flavour that actully leans towards juicy pine sap balanced with a good bitterness but not over bearing.Allergy Advice :- May Contain Barley and other Cereals, containing gluten Equipment Needed :-
