Thanks to richbrew for this one. Bottle: Amber brown color with a medium flaky head, lots of carbonation; aroma is quite inviting. Taste is straightforward, light body, clean and crisp.

Draught at Bisbano’s Pizza, Lafayette, LA. Clear dark amber with a white head. Faint malty aroma, a little buttermilk and sweet taste . light body, somewhat nutty, sweet finish. Quaffable.

Gespuccian (70) - 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 that’s not memorable. Drinkable, but, again, not memorable.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - APR 20, 2016
4.5%ABV. Amber Lager/Viena. Tapped out deep amber. 18ºSRM. 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 I’m 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!

Translucent amber body with with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet with a slightly moldy accent. Taste is hops & carmel, yet balanced right, not overly sweet, with a clean finish. Not bad.

Cybercat (4638) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Taps clear dark amber with a thick and rather persistent creamy eggshell head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma presents fruity and malty notes, not strong but serviceable. Flavor features malty and pomme tones, typical but enjoyable. Mouthfeel delivers OK, if slightly slimy, body and good fizz. Not terrific, but worth a try - have one with dinner or during a game.
