Product description

Brooklyn Special Effects Hoppy Amber is a hoppy lager-style brew with an unexpected zesty aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. The beer gets its bready sweetness from a blend of specialty malts, and its surprising nose from dry-hopping with citrus-forward hops--a technique rarely used in non-alcoholic brewing. We use a specially developed fermentation method that limits the amount of alcohol that is created, while allowing more traditional beer flavors to develop. It tastes just like a regular beer, but therein lies the special effect: it's not.

    This was not what I received, however I've had the Hoppy Amber in the past and really enjoyed it.

    Very good taste without any off notes so it doesn't have to be ice cold to enjoy. I'm only docking it a star because I would rather it have more bite. Recommended if you want a beer but don't want the alcohol!

    My husband doesn't drink and I order him those. He says his favorites NAs are Athletic brewery, Clausthaler and then this Brooklyn offering, so it's pretty good!

    A non-alc beer with interesting notes and layers. I get hoppiness and complexity. Makes other booze free beers taste like a participation trophy.


Strictly speaking, there are multiple kinds of amber beers, but what we'll talk about today is amber lagers. These lagers are so popular they're a widely distributed, sessionable craft beer style that showcases a balance between malt and hops.
Amber lagers are medium-bodied beers with a toasty or sweet malt character (think caramel). Hop bitterness can range from very low to medium-high, depending on the brewer, but all in all they tend to be very balanced and drinkable.
These beers tend to be on the lower side of the ABV (alcohol by volume) spectrum, landing somewhere in the 4.5% to 5.5% range, landing them in the "session beer" category.
