I snagged a bottle of AleSmith My Bloody Valentine sometime back and once again did not pay attention to the style, but when I opened the 6.66% ABV brew it was obviously an American amber ale and a darn good one at that. The website lists 24 IBU, but to my palate I thought the bitterness was higher. It had everything you want in an amber and was a pleasure to consume with the toasty caramel flavor which was balanced by the hop bitterness to avoid becoming cloying. If you see it, snag a bottle! Happy Valentines Day!!!
