With light-to-medium bodies and plenty of malty, hoppy flavour, amber ales come in an array of styles and flavours but are typically well-balanced. That makes them great for all occasions, but, as with most popular beer styles nowadays, there’s great breadth between breweries’ amber beers too – perfect for the connoisseur.
Amber ale beers are made with a small amount of roast or cara malts, which can add anything from burnt toast to caramel to the aroma and flavour.
Most amber ales come from the continent, Belgium in particular, where they have a strong fruit character that comes from their unique yeast strains. Famous Belgian amber beers include Brugse Zot Brun and Orval.
UK amber beers are also popular, with breweries like Pilot and Tiny Rebel experimenting more with the style to bring nutty, caramel flavours to the fore. American amber ales are another highlight, going just as nicely with rich and fatty American cuisine as they do with good company.
