Bottle. The pour was a clear honey brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that had decent retention and a nice amount of spotty lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, honey and a mild fruity ester. The taste was malty sweet with a pronounced caramel presence throughout with the finish having a good crisp hoppiness and a smooth lager feel. The flavor was short lived, evaporating a short time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a pretty straight forward Amber Lager with a great drinkability and a pleasant taste...

Pours amber with a decent enough head. A regular lager aroma is boosted ever so slightly by a hint of caramel. Yep, the regular bog standard lager flavour too.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not that good, pretty much run-of-the-mill kind of stuff. Disappointed overall.

trapped (2231) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 5, 2016
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.

Doesn't have a smooth finish. 4.5%. Igor brought over. I haven't anything yet from Abita that was any good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (2296) - 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 (4091) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2016
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.

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.
