447. Henniker Brewing Amber Apparition
Amber ales are tough for me. There are very few that stand out from the pack and unfortunately this one does not. Pours an almost brown color with single finger tan head. Aroma is almost entirely sweet malts and taste is the same. Overall this is a good representation of the style but there are so many other amber/red ales out there that do the same thing I am not sure why you would choose this over another.
If you see Henniker bottles in the store or visit the brewery try the Hop Slinger IPA as it is better than the amber.
Pros: Good representation of the style
Alcohol Content: 5.2% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 32
Brewers Description: An American Amber Ale – rich and enjoyable with its carmel and toffee sweetness that is balanced by a subtle aroma and a complimentary flavor of hops. Amber Apparition pairs well with delicate seafoods, poultry dishes and salads.
