American Amber / Red Ale

An American Amber or Red ale is named more for its color (usually between a light amber and a dark reddish amber) than a particular flavor profile.

Most American Ambers tend to be more malt-focused in taste, although some have a more even balance between malt and hop flavors, although hop bitterness tends to always be low. Generally speaking, the malts are lightly toasted and slightly sweet caramel malt with the hops tending toward fruity and/or citrusy flavors.

Best served cool, around 46-54 degrees in a pint glass or beer mug.

A German Dunkel inspired American Amber Lager with a signature hop aroma. This lager combines mostly Munich malt with the addition of gently balanced caramelized malts giving it a rich copper color as well as a bit more malt backbone and overall character than the typical amber lager.
