Happy Amber
(MadTree Brewing Company)

Happy Amber is one of three cans recently released from MadTree Brewing Company, the first craft brewery in Ohio to can their beer. We've been hearing good things about all of MadTree's beers for awhile now and are really looking forward to cracking this one open to see what all the buzz is about. Cheers!

From the can:

"This dry-hopped ale combines caramel and biscuit malt flavors in happy equilibrium with late addition American hops. The approachable balance is intentional, although the name is a "hoppy" accident."

Here we go...

Pour - bright auburn with some red and orange hues and a half inch of white head. Looks great as it settles and leaves some lacing inside the glass.

Aroma - biscuity, bread dough, light caramel and molasses with citrus and sweet pine.

Taste - solid malty base with brown sugar, toasted bread, crackers, baked apples, and caramel malts mixing in with a crisp, hoppy finish and a lasting bitterness. The dry-hopping defintiely figures in here and gives this amber ale more hop presence than others we've had - nothing wrong with that. 

Overall - an excellent American-style Amber Ale with definite leanings towards the hoppy side. Very solid and easy drinking, this will appeal to the hop lovers as well as those who might not be that fond of super hoppy brews. It falls magically, and happily, somewhere in the middle. Well done.


Note - one of the things we really love about MadTree Brewing's cans is that they provide the names of the folks involved in their art and design. All three cans have different artists involved and all three are very well done.
