Encyclopedia > Amber ale

North American amber ales are beers which range from light copper to light brown in color (with some termed red ales if the color warrants). They are characterized by American-variety hops used to produce high hop bitterness, flavor, and medium-to-high aroma. Amber ales have medium-high to high maltiness with medium to low caramel character. They usually have medium to medium-high body. The style may have a slight fruity (estery) flavor and aroma. The butter-like influences of diacetyl may be barely perceived. A little haze from yeast is acceptable for bottle-conditioned products.

Ale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (705 words)
Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeasts at temperatures from 15 to 25 °C (59 to 77 °F).
Ales are also usually served at a higher temperature than lagers: in the UK typically around 12 °C (54 °F) for an ale as compared to 8 °C (46 °F) for a lager.
Ales are very common in Britain, Germany, the United States, and Belgium; however, Lager is the dominant style of beer in almost all countries, worldwide.
