Good George High Tea Amber Ale (440ml Can)
We used to say we were Hamilton’s most hardcore brewers. Then one day we got a knock on the door from Zealong, a local tea plantation where they do some pretty mean brewing themselves. Rather than settle things with a to-the-death brew off, we instead took the Sesame Street approach and co-operated. The result is a fragrant, oolong-infused ale. Afternoon tea never tasted so good.
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.
