Offshore Amber Ale

The massive froth head that, at first is incredibly annoying but after walking away for about three minutes, leaves a huge amount of fantastic lacing and a spectacular rocky head. The lacing alone makes this a “5” on the appearance scale. After a ridiculous pour, it turned out to be one of the best looking beers I have seen in a long tome. Very hazy light, golden color in the pour too. All in all pretty interesting appearance.

Kind of sweet and light, reminded me a little of fruit juice. Aroma is not great – a little bit acid and apple like, but the taste does better than the smell would suggest. Lightness and acidity does come back a little in the finish though.

Mouthfeel is pretty light and this makes it drinkable but the downside is that it makes it a little light for me.

Not my favorite style, but this is a good beer that has crossover potential. Worth investigating.
