For those who love amber ales, here’s a limited edition amber lager is so crazy good you might convert to lagerism.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle with a twist-off cap; "Lower the decibel" is printed underneath. Pours clear reddish orange with a light beige head. Aromas of light wheat, red berry, and caramel. Bitter grass, lightly astringent, with some sweet malt in the finish. I’m not too crazy about this. [690]

Oscbert (1141) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
~Toasty bready malt aroma with sulfur quality. Biscuity. Light spicy hops. ~Pours clear copper color with small off white head. ~Bready biscuity malt flavor, slightly sweet with light spicy hops or balance. ~Medium bodied, med CO2, enjoyable sweet bready finish. ~Probably best Vienna I ever had, but I haven’t had that many. Enjoyable beer. Could drink a few of these.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Amber, clear, good off-white, almost light brown head with good carbonation. Taste is a good maltiness - sort of a slightly toasted bread with a touch of sweetness. It very much reminds me of a thicker, fuller, Negra Modelo. I really like this style of beer.

nealblind (1095) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2013
Lovely dark amber color. Smells of tart straw. Tastes first of straight up malt then moves into rich spiced caramel bread with a tail of hops. Light effervescence and medium mouthfeel. Very sessionable and similar to full sail’s session fest. Could hold up to even higher alcohol content. I’m thinking 7% or so.

Luvystypotables (1057) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Aroma of sour dough and malt, copper coloured not much of a head taste of dough and malt with a creamy feel an a sour dough palate.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Pours a clear rusty orange with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of butter (too much), dirt, toast, toffee, and green peppers. It’s kinda weird on the nose, but the flavor redeems itself with sweet caramel, toffee, earth, grass, and a slight peppery bitterness. Finishes fairly clean with lingering earth and toffee flavors and most butter characteristics are outweighed by mild bitterness. Still, I kinda wish it was drier given the sweet upfront flavor. Almost light bodied, with a slight cloying aspect and chewiness. It’s got some good points and bad points.

cstuartj (1019) - Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Colur like a dark pee when you haven’t drank enough water. Malty sweet smell and taste. Funky finish.

raphael (1015) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2011
malt-o-meal cereal aroma, with resiny hops, lemon. off white head doesn’t hold long over clear reddish brown. a little under-carbonated (bottle.). I taste brown sugar, wheat bread, pine. tangy finish.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark brownish-red with a one finger tan head that fades rather quickly leaving very little in the way of lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel along with noble hops. There is also some toast and nuttiness. Flavor has caramel and nuts up front nicely complimented by spicy hops. Toffee and caramel in the background along with a little bit of toast. Moderate bitterness with a little bit of a creamy mouthfeel. Clean finish with just the smallest amount of stickyness. Overall, a tasty lager but not one that really stands out from the pack. Really reminded me of SA Boston Lager. I would pick it up again if I saw it.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle at Columbia event. Pours a medium brown/amber color. Not much in the aroma, medium body, very sweet, finish really opens up, again, drinkable. Excellent.
