Alien Amber Ale

This otherworldly 5.2% ABV amber ale is from Sierra Blanca Brewing of Moriarty, New Mexico.

The beer pours a gleaming copper and amber in color. There is a half inch of off-white head, not long lasting. The aroma is toasted malt, caramel, a small touch of dark fruits. The taste follows the aromas, lots of toasted and caramel malt. The finish is dry, lightly bitter. The beer drinks smooth and easy, with a tingle of carbonation. This is basic beer, but solid all around. If you are going to have a gimmicky label, put good beer inside, and they have done so.
