Sisyphus Argyle Penguin Amber Ale

Sisyphus Argyle Penguin Amber Ale, based on a recipe Sam used back in the home-brew days. 6.2% ABV.

Clear, dark amber color, slim, white head.

Soft, sweet and malty aromatics. Little bit of fruity esters, some caramel notes.

In the mouth: Malt sweetness hits first, with moderate hops just coming in to keep it balanced. Caramel notes appear on the palate, sweetness spreads, spicy/citric hop presence is felt a little better, keeping it all together. Bitterness rises just a bit in the mouth, almost taking over malt, but not quite.

You want an amber ale? Here's a good 'un. Go drink it.
