Jumping Cow Amber Ale

Yet another pretty decent beer bought as a single from Trader Joe’s for $1.09. 12 oz bottle.

Very light color for an amber, this has a real orange color that is reminscent of a classic English IPA. A thin film on the surface and some minimal lace. Extremely malty and sweet in the nose and this is reflected in the taste. English type biscuit malts are very obvious. Nice.

Lots and lots of sweet, toffee and caramel malts. Kind of mild hop bitterness in the extreme finish.

Another, good value, solid offering from the Trader Joe stable.
