A good session beer. Not too hoppy, sweet, malty, bitter, sour etc. but a little too biscuity. Some ambers are good in summer. This would work in the fall. Also tasted like Germany...and it's not an ale...it's a lager. Holy hell. No Wonder it's so smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JHeath99 (834) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a transparent amber with super minimal off white head. Aroma of malts with a slightly fruity taste. Taste is very simple, more lager than amber, mostly malts.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with a short eggshell colored head. Nice looking beer. A bit of a creamy banana nose. Wet, yet crisp texture. A bit of a creamy flavor with the beer’s fruitiness. Doesn’t drink much like an amber.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label doesn’t list the abv on the label but there is a short description of the beer. It also appears to have a best before date system which marks the date with a small notch. (It was note notched however) Appearance: The body has a nice orange amber color with a smooth creamy off white head. The head holds on well and makes some slick lacing on the glass. Smell: It has a light overall aroma with mild toasty and nutty maltiness. Taste / Palate: The flavor has an easy drinking malty character with mild sweetness through out. It matches the aroma with light nutty toasted and bready notes with a touch of light hops for balance.

In can @ Residence Inn Baton Rouge. Good aroma, but didn't pour into a glass. Flavor is good with some nice malt notes. Very drinkable on a hot summer say in LA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355mL bottle. Pours deep golden with a 2 finger white head and a light toffee/spice aroma. Similar in the flavour with a slight citrus zestyness.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a medium amber – hey – with a white head. Slightly malty aroma, hints of caramel and hops, citrus. Dry, light bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Quite malty, citrusy taste, faint caramel. Quite non-descript. (2014-01-31)

Hazy amber with minor off white head. Aroma is notes of caramel malt, bready. Taste is sweet malt, bready, not much in the way of hops/ bitterness. Pretty generic amber lager

Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle in Shreveport. Aroma of bread crust and malt. Pours amber (hence the name) with a nice medium head. Taste is sweet bread crust, some raisin, but mostly malt. Nice medium wet mouthfeel and not too clingy of an aftertaste. This is a dependably solid vienna lager.

Amber in color. Smooth, easy drinking. Nice "buttery" aftertaste. My favorite for finishing a night.
