Amber Ale – medium mouthfeel, deep amber colour, and a crisp finish. It has a strong malt flavour and notes of sweet caramel/toffee that complement the roasted malt taste. The subtle hop presence gives the beer an almost flowery aroma. Notes of honey and dried fruit can also be detected.

*Remember there is a difference between absolute bitterness and perceived bitterness, so try things first before looking at the number on the label – you might be surprised.
Due to a typically dry finish, amber ales are great beers for cleansing your palate and ideal with a wide range of foods like: chicken, seafood and burgers. They are also great with spicy cuisine – think Jerk Chicken. You could also consider amber ales when eating slightly tangy cheeses (like Port-Salut) and of course with desserts – items such as pecan cookies, banana pound cake, and poached pears with dulce de leche (a caramel sauce from Latin America).
