This beer had a Best Enjoyed Before date of October 2010, but it's been in my fridge, so the temperature has been constant since I brought it home. Drinking straight from the bottle, I found the beer still tasted good - at least as far as I could tell. From my limited set of beer descriptors, I find the beer is chocolaty. However, most descriptions of the Peak Organic Amber Ale describe it as toasty*.

*A beer is toasty if it literally has a toasty flavor.

After drinking some of the beer from the bottle, I decided to pour the remainder of it out in a cup. Since I didn't have my pint glass, I used a whiskey glass. In any case, I proceeded to smell the beer and observe its color. While I was able to observe these two aspects, I was unable to translate my perceptions into words.

As the beer warmed up, it seemed to gain a little more flavor. In any case, the beer's flavor seemed familiar, but I couldn't put my finger on which beer it was similar to. Maybe it tastes like Blue Moon Belgian White.

Our Amber Ale is designed to start bright and lively from an abundance of Crystal Malts. We establish a strong contrast between front palate and back palate by adding generous amounts of Munich Malt, which provides a distinct toasty finish.

ABV: 4.9% IBUs: 37
