AMERICAN AMBER ALE



Why American Amber? Well because the colour is amber and the hops are American of course! Often originating from the Yakima Valley in Washington State, these hops give big flavours of pine and citrus fruits. This, combined with a malty hit from Munich and Caramunich malts give this beer it's personality.
Dry hopping is recommended. Falconer's Flight 7C gives a good result.
Note that the hops we use on brewday may well vary to those in the recipe, according to availability.
