DetailsMaverick Amber Ale is a new release we developed in collaboration with our friends at Half Moon Bay Brewery out on the west coast. It is a robust amber ale with a fantastic hop backbone. The specialty malts included in this kit provide a deep amber color and more than an indication of roasted malt flavor. The hop additions produce delightful bitterness and a floral bouquet.

5.0 / 5.04 ReviewsmaverickVery good beer kit. I used white labs premium yeast to be sure I got a good flavor profile. Beer was excellent!September 4, 2013It's good stuff - but I can't call it an amberWhen I purchased the kit, I expected an AMBER. Not a porter. This baby is DARK. Originally I imagined something like...any other amber - say Dos Equis for example. I have been wondering if I got the wrong kit but the "roasty" talk they mention in the description is spot on. Flavor is really good and I'm looking forward to drinking this beer and sharing it._x000D__x000D_I used the San Francisco Lager yeast by White Labs because my original plan was to make an amber lager. Instead of calling it "Maverick Amber" I'm calling it "Maverick Lager" which helps because everyone I've showed this to says "that's not an amber, dude."_x000D__x000D_We've used this beer in a sauce recipe for chicken as well and it turned out great. _x000D__x000D_I'd buy it again but think it needs to be reclassified (or the dark malts need to be cut back).February 20, 2015Great FlavorThis amber ale has a great malt flavor and malt backbone. I love how the hops are very subdued and it is very malt forward.April 16, 2013Great beerBrewed this on 3/9/13. Hit all of my numbers. I'd recommend a starter. I Got busy and it had to sit longer in the secondary than planned, but for the better. Great malt taste with good hop balance. I like this better than the Autumn Amber kit. I'm having to steer my friends to my other other beers so I can keep this one to myself. I will be brewing this one again soon.May 30, 2013
