Rich, enjoyable lager in the Vienna style. Deep reddish color, rich frothy, long lasting head. Nice aroma of hops and biscuits. Malty flavor with lots of hidden flavor notes appearing at different points as you go from start to finish in the glass. If only every U.S. brewer made a lager like this one. Very enjoyable.

Excellent beer, malty and clean taste that leaves you quite refreshed as you should be with a lager. Decent hops and hearty flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dull amber. Scant, off white head. Slow, big bubbled carbonation. Caramel and light toasted malt aroma with flakes of spicy hops. Crisp yet firmly malted with caramel notes, toasty husks and a touch of cocoa. Spicy hop balance. Medium body. Quite full for a lager, though crisply finishing. Ends with a toasted caramel, spicy hop mixture and clean water finish. Not quite a Vienna but a good amber lager.

This is a very neutral beer. Not too heavy, not too light. This Amber Lager was pretty good.

Amber color. Small head. Aroma is sweet malt. A medium bodied lager. Malts are slightly sweet. Hops are soft and slightly spicy. Nicely balanced. Taste is somewhere between a lager and an amber/Vienna. Nice refreshing beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
