Amber-Dark Beer

Hobart Brewing Co.

Beers that are amber to dark in colour are usually a reflection of specialty malts used in the brewing process and can include a broad spectrum of flavours from biscuity, caramel, chocolate, roast or cereal grain like.  These beers often (but not always) showcase elements of this malty character more prominently than their lighter coloured counterparts, and usually are more subdued in hoppy character. In Australia, dark lagers tend to be lighter in their overall flavour, while dark ales often ramp up the maltiness amongst other flavours.

These styles of beer are incredibly satisfying on the palate and well worth exploring if you haven’t tried one before.
