Beer: Antique Amber
Beer Style: Red Lager
Brewery: Crown Valley Brewing
Serving Methodology: Bottle poured into pint glass
Country of Origin: United States of America
Background: As stated earlier, I recently enjoyed a Gunslinger IPA and visited Crown Valley’s Branson, MO facility. Read about this here. Antique Amber was another I included in our a la carte mix a sixer.
Taste & Aroma: Dark fruits and malt are here. They smell great. This is a sharp perfume this beer’s wearing. No, that’s not an atomizer. That’s a great grain bill. The flavor is just as elegant and delightful as the aroma. It is almost a mirror image. The dark fruits at the start are welcoming and bright. There’s a sharp tart bite at the end with a lingering maltiness that’s oddly bright. I’ve not encountered this in a beer before. I love it. Solid aroma and solid flavor are here.
Final Analysis: I love this beer. I aim to obtain more of Crown Valley’s portfolio of beers at the soonest possibility.
