Amber & Red Ale

Knowing the different styles

Amber and red ale is a relatively broad category and there is plenty of variety in the different types. In the beginning, these beers were easy drinking with a good harmony between the malts and hops. Today, hop presence varies greatly with some breweries creating very hoppy amber and red beer. American brewers in particular are producing more bitter amber ales and American amber was actually the most popular early craft beer style with its softer malts and fruity hops.

Amber Ales vs. Pale Ales

In contrast to pale ales, amber ales have a richer body and mouthfeel as well as a stronger caramel malt flavour with subtle notes of toffee. However, darker malts such as chocolate are avoided to ensure the amber beer in question doesn’t cross the colour threshold and present a hue and taste closer to that of brown ale. Generally, nearly all hops used to create an American amber ale are also home-grown, which allows for hints of citrus, pine and sometimes even tropical fruit to shine through.

Red Beer 

Red beer could very well be described as a ruddier, fuller amber ale, thanks to the emphasis on malt selection. Irish red ale in particular is all about malt content, meaning purveyors of fine red beer can expect flavours ranging from sweet toffee to biscuity and grainy notes. Try pairing well-known examples of amber and red ales such as Palm or Brewdog Five AM Saint with your favourite mild cheeses to enjoy a composed, layered taste. If you really want to bring out those hops though, try an American amber or red ale alongside a hamburger. Not only do the salty flavours from the burger make the beer taste fruiter, the toasted malts also bond incredibly well with the beef.
