American Amber Ales are typically characterized moderate to high hop flavour with a moderate hop aroma using American hops which tend to be citrusy. The moderate to strong maltiness balances the hop character well and adds pronounced caramel flavour. These ales are amber to coppery brown in colour and are more rich then American Pale Ales. This is an excellent kit for those starting into all-grain brewing.
