This smooth, well balanced, but not very pushy on flavor beer beats your old manís silver, white, and blue canned beers hands down. The spring water gives it a nice smooth feel, not too heavy on hops, a nice mildly nutty flavor without ever being boring.

Draught @ Malt and Mold. Clear amber with small frothy beige head, faint caramel aroma, lightly bitter caramel taste, medium carbonation, thin body, abrupt finish. Decent, not great.

Abita Amber 4.5% tap at First Draft for the State tick. Pouring more copper gold than Amber with a malty honey biscuit nose that may contain hints of diacetyl. Decent malt forward Amber type flavor but also has a salty sweet edge to it which is odd but overall ok.

Itzjerm (2186) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Burnt Amber flavors. Malty. Sweet and very basic beer like. Can't say it is remotely what I want out of a beer. Carmel notes thin. Pass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kerenmk (4015) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2016

Gespuccian (114) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2016
Drank this back to back with Yuengling...I think this one lost. Light amber color, some aroma of caramel. Taste is mainly malt and caramel, but in a way thatís not memorable. Drinkable, but, again, not memorable.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - APR 20, 2016
4.5%ABV. Amber Lager/Viena. Tapped out deep amber. 18ļSRM. Nose is beery with an hint of phenol. Some nutty sweetness in the nose. As an homage to local flavors...glazed pecans. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has deeply toasted malty flavors with nice nutty character of honey almonds, glazed pecans, and with an homage again to the sweetness of the palate with little or nothing to do with nuts, circus peanuts! The palate has a nice ale-like palate that has a very subtle funk to it with some nice nutty, slightly lactic, old wood flavors. All this on the back of strong and well-represented Amber or brown ale flavors. No hops. Overall, a full bodied amber or brown ale experience with a full-bodied malt experience if lacking in overall character. Well-provisioned and although Iím not partial to ambers will give this one a place on the list just because I can and likely because of flavor more than anything else. Goes on Favorites List!
