Amber Ale

The Amber Ale beer style is a broad category. There are many beers that could be considered amber in colour and there can be a lot of cross-over among styles that share similar characteristics. In general, amber ales tend to be a malt-forward beer, often possessing flavours of biscuit, caramel, or toffee, and depending on the beer itself, may or may not have a fairly strong hop character. Town Square Brewing Company’s Forged Rye Amber Ale stood out. It possesses complex flavours that are at the same time subtle. A distinct nuttiness combined with a touch of caramel and a nice crisp finish make this beer a great example. Kirk Bodnar
