Amber Style Tasting Confirmed!

 Hello fellow BIMPers. I’ve just confirmed the date for next month’s tasting! We’ll be holding our “Amber Armageddon” event at Isaac and Stef’s House on February 25th at 7pm. So what is an Amber beer? Amber beer can be either an Ale or a Lager. From what I could find the style is a spinoff of the traditional Pale ale. Amber Ales are generally amber to red in color, have a tones of caramel and malt, a medium to heavy body, and moderate hoppy flavor. Amber beer can also come as a lager. As with any lager, you can expect less fruity flavors derived from the yeast at higher temperatures. Lagers will also have a more malty/grain flavor than ales. If you are at a loss for what to bring PLEASE MAKE SURE THE BEER SAYS AMBER ON IT (duh… haha). Otherwise here is a list of Amber Ales, and here’s a list of Amber Lagers if that helps. Either way I’m looking forward to seeing you all again soon, and as always… Cheers!
