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.

Beautiful browish copper appearance. Smooth pour with limited head and surprisingly little aroma even with nose deep in the glass. It appears the scent needs to go through the mouth rather than the nostrils; I enjoyed a lingering aroma of the beer’s hops for a few moments following my first few sips. Surprisingly strong hoppiness for an amber lager. Not bad, but left me feeling like this beer is trying to compete in a different category

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a daker and slightly hazy amber color with a large sized, frothy off white head. Aromas of lemons, toasted malts, light caramel, and all around fruity. Tastes of citrus, toasted malts and some caramel. Has a lively and fizzy body that I really didn’t care too much for.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottled. Pours amber with slightly lacy white head. The aroma is spice and fruit. Lightish body and carbonation. The taste is slightly spicy, with caramel malt and a lightly bitter finish. Tastes way better than Fisherman’s Friend, but nothing really stands out about this beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle courtesy of thaichile. Drak copper with nice off-white head. Aroma rather muted toasted grain, with faint caramel. Flavor again all toasted malt with some bittering hops towards the finish. Easy drink, just really nothing going on.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2006
Hazy dark golden color with a thin covering of off-white head. Has an earthy sweet caramel malty aroma. Body starts with a touch of sweet toasty malt and a decent bittering earthy hoppy balance. Finishes lightly sticky and bittersweet. A drinkable, ok beer.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Thaichile. Pours an orangish copper body under a one finger craggy off-white head. Aroma is mostly a general graininess with some toasted and a little biscuity malt. Fairly light in flavor with some biscuity malt under a moderately bitter hoppiness. Finish is short and moderately bitter. Lighter bodied and a little thin with active carbonation. An OK, but unexciting, "Amber".

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Poured a hazy copper color with a small light beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and fruit. Had phenolic notes. Sweet malty caramel flavor. Light bitter finish is semi-dry.

beastiefan2k (2522) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2006
As everyone put it, a decent beer but nothing to write home about. Pours with little head, slightly lucid beer with an orange tint. The taste had nothing distinguishable neither did the aroma.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2006
(02.22.06) 12 oz brown bottle received as gift in a trade with Thaichile. Yeast conditioned bottle only 75% full with about 3” head space. Slight gusher on pouring. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Soft carbonation. Juicy fruit esters on nose. Light-to-medium bodied amber ale that starts dry with wisp of malt sweetness and light malt flavor. Slight sharpness on mouth. Finishes dry with light nutty malt and bitterness fade. Slight metallic aftertaste. Thin, watery flavored, overly dry, and lacking complexity. No discernable oxidation products, despite large head space. Borderline drinkable. Maybe an old bottle?

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 21, 2006
(Bottle) Cloudy amber with off-white head. Rotten egg aroma. Some sloppy lacing. Dryish mouthfeel. Tastes fairly bitter up front, then some maltiness. Not really objectionable but pretty mediocre.
