Beer Description:
Inspired by the iconic sailboats that are synonymous with Chesapeake Bay, Anheuser-Busch introduces today Skipjack Amber – a smooth, well-balanced amber lager brewed for beer lovers primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region. Available on draught in select bars and restaurants in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, as well as North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee, Skipjack Amber is a medium-bodied beer characterized by a rich caramel and roasted nut taste. It is balanced by a complex blend of citrus, floral and spicy hop aromas, and features a refreshing finish and a thick, creamy head. Named in honor of the skipjack sailboats that sail the Chesapeake Bay, this specialty beer was crafted by a small, hand-picked group of beer experts from Anheuser-Busch’s Williamsburg, Va., brewery. The group – which welcomed the opportunity to apply its extensive brewing knowledge and experience to local beer lovers’ preferences and tastes – chose the beer style, created the recipe and selected Skipjack Amber’s name and tap marker design. “As members of the Williamsburg community for more than 35 years, we took great pride in crafting a beer that honors the Mid-Atlantic States and the Chesapeake Bay,” said Dan Driskill, senior brewmaster of Anheuser-Busch’s Williamsburg brewery. “The team tasted a wide variety of amber lagers to determine how to best differentiate this beer. We’re confident adult beer lovers in this region will love it as much as we do.” Skipjack Amber is brewed with two-row and Munich malt, as well as two types of caramel malts, which give the beer a distinctive amber-red hue. It contains a citrus, floral and spicy blend of Saaz, Nelson Sauvin, Alsace and Hallertau hops for a balanced and pronounced flavor.
