Four Saints Brewing Potter's Clay
What the brewers say
Our take on the American amber: malt-forward caramel sweetness with a bit of hop bite on the back, though not hoppy.
What our panel thought
Aroma pulls you in: caramel, raisin, pine, sweet oranges. Caramel notes are worty, like first runnings. Flavor brings a wash of grounding bitterness and woody hops, supported by caramel-malt backbone. Slight burnt note. Sufficient body. Dry, bitter finish.
What our editors thought
Toasted orange peel, bread crust, and piney hops on the nose for general American appeal. The sip leans sweet, with light-roast malt pushing sweetness to underscore that citrus. Piney hops scrub it clean in the finish.
