American Amber Ales are an amber, hoppy, moderate-strength craft beer with a caramel malty flavour. The balance can vary quite a bit, with some versions being fairly malty and others being aggressively hoppy.
ATF Hop Head Red is malty hoppy beer with a beautiful red hue. It has a wonderful mix of citrus flavours and aromas (grapefruit, orange, lime) on top of a luscious malty caramel base with hints of dark fruits. With a full mouthfeel and sufficient bitterness to balance the caramel sweetness it is the perfect marriage of malt and hops.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using two packets of Mangrove Jack's Liberty Bell Yeast.
Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to two packets.
