I recently tried New England Brewing - Sea Hag IPA and thought that was one of the best beers in a can I have ever had. At the time I said Sea Hag came across as being very sophisticated considering it came in a can. The same thing goes for Atlantic Amber beer as it also is sophisticated in spite of the can.
Atlantic Amber poured a rich amber color with a light beige head that lingered as a thin film.
It's aroma was pungent and heavy with thick-syrupy malt notes.
The flavor was an almost perfect balance between the roasted malts and hops. Nut, caramel, vanilla notes are deep, rich and warming. Yet the hops form a blanket over the flavors, tempering the underlying sweetness with dryness. As a result, this balance makes this a very smooth beer to drink. The hops were also soapy and similar to those used by Sam's Boston Lager. The only sharpness in the whole experience comes from the carbonation.
The body was medium with a high degree of carbonation.
Everything about this beer was first class. Even better than the flavor was the price. Given that beer prices are through the roof today, this beer can be picked up for under $7 bucks a 6-pack. This and Sea Hag are really great beers and worth checking out.
