A classic ale with a malty, fruity, nutty aroma and a complex, satisfying flavour.
Any beer less than a Dark Ale in color, ranging from amber to deep red hues. Taste tends to focus on the malts, but hop character range is very wide. A balanced beer, with toasted malt characters and a light fruitiness finish. Amber Ales range from a basic ale, to American brewers who brew faux-Oktoberfest style beers that are actually ales instead of lagers.
