Columbus hops provide an earlthy, citrus hop profile for this amber ale. Melanoidin and light crystal malt provide a solid malty backbone.
According to Highland Brewing Co.’s website, “A deep amber-colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness. It has a universal appeal and is our workhorse, accounting for about half of our total production.”

Dear Replicator, I am an avid homebrewer and especially enjoy trying to replicate the great beers I come across in my journeys. I recently fell in love with Crazy Mountain Brewing Company’s Amber Ale
The Fender Bender is a classic example of the American amber ale style. It is clear and bright with colors displaying dark copper and light ruby highlights. A creamy white head shows great retention. The aroma features malt up front with a pronounced citrus background. Caramel malts dominate the flavor with just enough hop bitterness to offset the residual sweetness. Melanoidin malt provides a slight nuttiness with dextrin adding to the body.
Dear Replicator, During a trip my wife and I took up the Oregon Coast. We stopped for dinner in Lincoln City, Oregon at Road House 101. There I had a Fender Bender

Released each fall after the hop harvest, Nugget Nectar is an imperial amber ale featuring an explosion of pine, resin, and mango hop flavors and aromas.

Caramel malts lend whispers of toffee and an enjoyable sweetness, while a touch of bittering hops gives this beer its clean finish. Crafted for balance, Avalanche is a versatile and satisfying anytime beer.”
