America, until recently, has had a reputation for some bland beers, but for a few years now, craft breweries have been popping up and making some amazing craft ales. Youngs have created their own American range and here we have the Amber Ale version.

This kit uses dry hopping, this means adding the hops (Pacific Jade, Cluster and Summit) at the end of the fermentation. This adds lots of extra flavours without adding the bitterness you would expect with a highly hopped beer, so you get lots of hints of Citrus and Pink Grapefruit punching their way through which works amazingly well with the rich malt flavours. Young's have even sourced a Dark Ale yeast to give extra lift, really making this a beer that stands out from the ordinary.

Looks:Light Brown
Smells:Rounded malty aromas, with subtle floral and hints of spice
Taste:Soft malt character with a rounded feel in the mouth, enhanced with floral hop, pine resin and earthy undertones

Tasting Notes:

On the nose this beer has a light aroma, with hints of caramel, lemon, hops and a gently hint of spring flowers.

Taking a sip, you notice the smooth texture of the beer with a slightly zingy, almost effervescent feeling on the tongue.

Initially, you’ll taste the malty sweetness, this gradually develops into bitters that arrive on the sides of the tongue, leaving the centre of your tongue with a gently dry feeling.

Now comes the mouth watering, slightly citrus notes, ending with a lingering gentle bitterness on the tip of the tongue, which makes you want to take another mouthful.

Dark golden in colour and slightly hazy when young, this American Amber Ale has an ABV of 5.4%, so is quite powerful, but it hides it well.
