Weezledog DickleDoi Imperial Ruby Ale (500ml Bottle)
Big, red and not shy on the malt, somewhat of a forgotten ingredient in many modern beers. A huge malt base of biscuit, dark crystal and a pinch of chocolate malt provides some fruitcake-eskey notes with a hint of nutty roastiness. The yeast is American, keeping it clean and allowing the NZ hops to really smash through late.
A style without definition, amber ales range from bland, vaguelly caramelly beers to products with a fairly healthy malt and hop balance. Often the differentiation between a quality amber and an American Pale is that the amber might have more dark malt character, or a less assertive hop rate.
