malvrich (63) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass A: Pours a clear dark amber orange with a very nice 1" beige head. Decent retention and lacing also. S: Hops come in on a weak nose overall. a slight white bread crust note. T: Much different from the smell with a not quite caramelly malt flavor and a nice tart bitterness overall. Simple but pretty nice. M: Fairly thin as expected at this ABV. Low visible carbonation but a nice tingle on the tongue. Pretty clean and refreshing. O: Simple, inoffensive session lager wont bowl anyone over but a nice quencher with spicy food. Good to try but I probably wont buy again.

Amber beers usually don’t have a lot going on and thus is no exception. That said it’s not bad. Some malt. No of flavors.

This is the pale ale of amber ales. Relatively flavorless. On tap in NO. No nose. Ever so slight bitterness. Not notable.

Boomersmancave1 (82) - Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Light malt and hop aroma. Bread like taste with a finish of hop. Not a bad beer. It would go good with pork or grilled chicken.

Draft in NOLA. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is of caramel and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Caramel malt, herbal hops and some grapes fill the mouth. Finish is medium, semi-dry. Not bad on tap.
