Home Brew: American Amber

Just a nice generic Amber I brewed 4 weeks ago. Been in the bottle for 2 weeks, so I thought I would give it a try. And I'm happy I did, because this is very yummy. Somewhat light on fizz and head, but it has a nice light hoppy aroma, with a full-bodied hop flavor. Nice nuttyness too. And just enough bitterness on the back end to let you know it is an Amber. Great color too.
