American Ales: American Amber/Red Ale

More of a Pacific Northwest style that has more body and caramel flavors than an APA. Usually more malt flavor comes through but some can be hoppy. Citrus hops aroma are the norm but not necessary. Clear, good head and retention with amber to ruby brown coloring. A medium bodied beer with ample carbonation.
