From the brewer

The Northwest’s original, unfiltered and dry hopped amber ale. African Amber’s pioneering and innovative style is proof that drink-abilty does not have to be achieved by sacrificing flavor. This beer erupts with a floral, hoppy taste, followed by a well rounded malty middle, finishing with a nicely organic hop flavor. Locally sourced two row grain and a blend of specialty malts give our amber its rich taste. Further complexity is achieved by leaving the beer unfiltered, providing exceptional flavor, as well as giving our amber its unique "cloudy" look. Lastly, we actually place a bag of fresh, locally grown, Yakima valley hops in each keg creating what has become the original, cult classic, northwest amber ale.

Who's been drinking this

Had this a lot before, a nice hop presence with a good maltiness behind. Refreshing although very flavorful.
Kind of featureless, save the assertive hoppy finish. Needed some meat to balance it out. NO THAT IS NOT A EUPHEMISM.

Yeah, I can still go out all night immediately after getting off of a transatlantic flight... as long as I take the next three days off.
Solid amber - a bit of hops round it out and there's a slight sweetness. Easy to drink.
