Fisherman’s Brew is an American Amber Lager, brewed by the docks of America’s oldest seaport, Gloucester, Massachusetts, from the finest 2-row barley imported from Munich, Belgium and England. At 5.5% ABV and a well balanced 30 IBU’s, this smooth lager offers a toasty malt flavor followed by a dry, hoppy finish.
Malts: Pilsner, Munich Dark, Crystal 70-80 LB, Cara-pils
Hops: Nugget, Liberty

Spicey and nutty earthy aroma with some metallic background. Clear orange color, collapsing head. Bittersweet caramel taste, very much an English brew in this way, although it’s a lager. Crisp clean body, for medium length sessions. Okay stuff, not a match for the heavy hitters in this category.

Pours a coppery amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of light caramel malt some grains and light fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with mild bitter notes. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is light caramel malt and grains, light bitterness and fruity notes, and a mild nutty ending. Overall not a very robust brew in flavor and aroma, just an ok brew.

Bottle. Nose lightly dusty with a sprinkling of sweet earth, Munich with the muted earthy-spiciness of English hops. Pours a beautiful dark copper-amber with a rocky beige head. Spicy English hops [aha! It must be the Nugget] and crystal malt with a little sweet darkness of Munich and some nice rolling malt depth, lightly woody; bitterness is very light and more nutty-earthy than bitter, also overwhelmed by the sticky sweetness. Light fruity edge-rounders and a pleasant buttery undercurrent. Love the toasty character here. Medium-fullish body, aftertaste dries a bit. This is my vision of a traditionalist Englishman brewing an Alt for his Rhenish guests with what was at hand; it has a wonderful balance between malt and hops and would do very well in multiple seasons, best late at night.

Slightly hazy medium amber, persistent heavy head cover, swaths of lace. Taste opens with sweet malt and light toast, joined by mild bittering midway through the palate, slowly dissolving to sweet malt again at the finish. Refreshing, easy to drink, good with seafood.

Bottle thanks to trade with phatdog1! Pours a clear amber brown with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of bready malts and a hint of astringency. Taste follows, nice caramel notes with a hint of spice. Solid Vienna lager.

Bottle:   Amberish, a bit hazy, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grassy nose, slight biscuit.   Notes of caramel, soft soil, grains, and toasted malts on the tongue.   Seems pretty clean too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems more hearty than your normal Vienna, darker, and with more caramel.   Better than expected.

Pint Glass: Pours a slightly dark yet clear red body with a decent transparency, one finger white foamy head; Aroma is malty with a decent amount of caramel added to it, Taste is mainly sweet through previously mentioned flavors, palate is slightly light/maybe medium, somewhat sessionable; Overall: ok, not bad, pretty sure I would have again, as its good for its style and good for me

(From notes 2011) Poured from bottle at Durgin Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Pours a cloudy honey color with a minor head and almost no lacing. Nice aroma of hopiness with a touch of citrus, not too overwhelming but certainly present. Sweet and slightly spicy in taste, very enjoyable. Average mouthfeel of a lager, good drink-ability. A very good session beer.

12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts with some light hops and hints of toast. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.
