It seems like there are a lot of new amber lagers coming out from pretty well known brands that are mostly known for regular American lagers. I presume this is in reaction the the popularity of Yuengling or however the name of that beer is spelled. Generally, they are just the same as whatever regular version of the lager w/ a red color but this one is actually rather different than regular LaCrosee. It is very malt, exaggeratedly so. It doesn’t taste bad so much as it’s just overly sweet and heavy. I like all beers but as beers go, this one I like less than most.

12oz can 11/22/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-40° in Lager Glass-Pours a lighter amber with an off white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of caramel, malt, and toffee. This medium bodied brew is pretty well balanced and not too shabby. I was expecting worse but surprised.

Poured a clear red/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts with a fruity hue. Taste was malty with mild hop bitterness and slighty nutty background. Palate of decent. Overall, a drinkable amber lager by the folks at City Brewery. I was pleasantly surprised.

ccex (921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2013
12 oz. can pours a clear orange/brown with quickly fading off-white head but decent lacing. Aroma is grainy, with lots of caramel and a bit of corn syrup. Tastes more sweet than bitter. Body is light but not watery, with average carbonation. This one greatly exceeded my expectations, given so many other foul ones from this brewery. Much better than a lawnmower beer and I would be glad to have tried it even at twice the price.

Tap at Bodega in La Crosse. Clear orange pour with no head. Faint nose. Taste is sweet grain and caramel - simple, not too bad.

bytemesis (3099) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Can. Pours crystal clear orange with a medium beige head that disappears quickly with some lacing. Aroma is grain, caramel, corn syrup, popcorn. Flavor is surprisingly OK. Medium sweet, light grassy bitter. A refreshing macro for a hot summer day. Light body.
