Amber Ale

(n.) Less a distinct style of beer than a description of its color, an amber ale is typically deep gold to red with a malty profile. Its hop character can vary from light to heavy, depending on the producer, but the beer generally has a citrusy edge. Amber ales are often similar to pale ales, but they have a more pronounced caramel flavor and more body. The darker styles may also be labeled as “red ales.”
