O’Fallon Hemp Hop Rye Amber Ale pours up with little head. The color is a dark golden amber, which is appropriate given these is an Amber Ale. The head fades to fine bubbles around the edge of the glass.
The aroma is a little fruity with a malt hint in the background. It is very enjoyable.
The taste is crisp with a light malty fruit taste of a dry wine. But, I wouldn’t say the beer is dry or fruity. I normally associate Amber Ales with a strong bold malt taste, which this beer doesn’t have in any way.
With the ABV of 5.5%, I could easily see this as a session beer. I have enjoyed it, but I would call it an Amber Ale.
