Grolsch Amber Ale

Pours medium amber color, not much head, I may have it too cold. Definite caramel aroma – caramel overpowers hops in aroma. Smooth taste with caramel malts coming through along with a definitely hoppiness I would call medium to medium heavy. Detect a tiny bit of sweetness but very hard to discern among the bitterness of the hops. Definitely not a swigging ale, more contemplative sipping is in order. A nice pour on a cool night. The last few ambers I’ve had have been disappointing, thought I might have lost my taste for them, but it’s back now. As it warms hops really dominant, maybe a little much for me. It’s still good. Started as a six but finished as a five. Definitely worth another try. Love my new glass. Head got a little better as it warmed but was still thin and weak.

Grolsch Amber Ale Rating: 5 out of 10 (?)
