This American Amber Ale takes the hop attitude of the American Pale Ale and adds another dimension with added malt character. This fantastic ale originated in the Pacific North West and is a fairly recent style of beer but don't be fooled by its name, this may be an amber ale but but we have packed it full of hops from two parts of the globe! Summit, Cluster and Pacific Jade Hops all come together to give this beer a fantastic flavour and aroma. This beer pours a wonderful amber colour with a rocky off-white head, the hop character oozes from the glass providing you with a perfect blend of spicy black currants and grapefruit. On the palate, the juicy caramel and toffee malt melds together with the wonderful hop flavours leaning towards a juicy pine sap balanced with a perfect bitterness, but not overpowering. This American range of beer kits have been developed to bring the best of American Craft Brewing to your home. They have been made to fit the same philosophy as the American Craft Brewing industry which is to provide you with only the freshest and best ingredients from around the world, not sacrificing quality over cost. What makes this such a unique range of beer kits is the use of specialist yeasts such as US West Coast Ale sourced from an American Craft Brewery and Newcastle Dark Ale Yeast. These all come together to produce a wonderful flavoursome range of American Craft Beer kits.
This kit produces 40 pints of flavoursome 5.4% American Amber Ale.

Lovely hop aroma and flavour. So nice to drink as a session or treat. Sadly I've drunk it all now so have purchased the American Pale Ale to try next.
