Liquid Amber Ale
(Prescott Brewing Company)
The one and only Prescott Brewing Liquid Amber Ale. This is the only brew canned by Prescott and it is available in the greater Phoenix area for around $8.49 a six-pack. Its also sold at a lot of golf courses which is yet another reason to love craft beer in cans!
From the Prescott site:
"A medium-bodied ale, with a rich, malty flavor. Brewed with added caramel malt for a rich, amber color. Cascade & Tettenang hops round out the profile of this flavorful brew.."
Here we go...
Pour - dark golden in color with about a half inch of head adoring the pour. Some red and yellow hues come out in the light and I'd have to say this looks like a pretty delicious beer.
Aroma - brown bread with honey, molasses, caramel treats and bran muffins. This is a malt lovers dream.
Taste - the first thing this beer reminds me of is raisin bran cereal. It has a lot of that bran malty flavor along with some raisin sweetness. If you love malty brews than I think you'll be happy with this one. There is a lot of caramel taste to this as well as dark bread and butter and the overall taste of a brewery. It may sound strange but all of that comes together to form one nice, yet very malty, beer.
Overall - if you love caramel flavors and big maltiness then this brew is sure to satisfy. There is a lot of sweet malty flavors and aromas associated with this amber ale so if you're a malt head you'll love it. Personally I liked it for all those reasons and found it very smooth and tasty.
Would I buy more of it? - I might actually as this would be a good brew to have while sitting around the campfire or in the backyard around the fire pit.
Note - Prescott Brewing is celebrating 16 years of beer loving fun this year so if you happen to be in the Phoenix area be sure to stop in for a pint or two!
