Nugget hops give this beer an upfront bitterness and an herbal nose that play well with the toasty caramel notes of the brew. If you desire added sweetness to balance the bitter try aging this beer on dried dark fruits for 2 weeks prior to bottling. Raisins, prunes, dates, any of those sticky and sweet options will do!
Amber Ales have a balanced flavor profile that hits a number of sensations such as malty, bitter, and herbal. This is a great food beer as it goes with so many options - Zesty Cucumber Salads will benefit from the caramel notes, freshly made Burgers pair well with herbal notes, and candied nuts have a sweet and savory flavor that will go great with the overall malty profile!
