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...

12 oz bottle pour. Pours a darker copper color with a thin head. Sweet, doughy aroma. Caramel malt flavors, pretty bready. A little sugary with medium carb. This beer wasn’t great, but not bad either. Glad I tried this.

As lagers go, not bad and much better than most readily available draught beers in the USA. Bland taste, OK carbonation.

Flavors aren’t offensive, just really bland. Light notes of caramel and grains. Very faint hops.

HIGHB4LL (655) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, golden copper color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: caramel, wheat, light floral hops. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slightly watery texture. Taste: sweet caramel into ever so slight floral hops taste, finish is thin. Overall, nothing special, and even worse for the style.

"an average amber brew...more on the malty side, but even the malt does nothing that gets me too excited. the best ambers for me are well balanced,or have one stand out characteristic...this is neither."
