OVERALL RATING:

BEERUSEBEERUSEBEERUSE

Sight: Clear dark amber body with a wispy white head.

Smell: The prominent aromas are a deep, sweet apple malt and a full citrus hop.

Flavor: Oddly, it tastes like a German lager, with that doughy malt flavor. There is a trace of hops that provide some semblance of the bitterness an Amber Ale should have. However, it’s just kind of bland.

Feel: Its thin body and full carbonation make the mouthfeel a bit off for the style.

Concluding Remark: Triumph Brewing’s Amber Ale slightly misses the mark for the style, but is nevertheless wholly drinkable. If you wind up traveling through Princeton, Philadelphia, or New Hope, you should absolutely stop at each city’s respective Triumph. However, just don’t order the Amber Ale (or the Holy Smoke–a bizarre smoked British cask ale). Do go for the Bengali Gold IPA, though!
