AMBER ALE is a wide-ranging term used to define any beer less than a Dark Ale in colour, ranging from amber to deep red. Brewers of Amber Beer have tended to focus on a robust malt structure in the past, but in recent times hop character has been enhanced, largely by American brewers, to great effect. Balanced, with toasted malt characters and a light fruitiness, Amber Beers are a faithful companion both day and night due to their “sessionable” nature.
FYNE ALES was founded in 2001 by Jonny and Tuggy Delap in Argyll, Scotland and started out as a traditional ale outfit, but they rapidly garnered local recognition for their innovative brews. With the advent of the craft beer revolution, they started to branch out into craftier offerings starting with the American hopped Jarl golden ale. They then moved into Belgian and American inspired farmhouse creations with their origins project, which sees them experimenting with mixed fermentation, barrel aging, locally sourced seasonal ingredients and weird and wonderful recipes.
