Bottle: beautiful dark amber color, with a small off white head. Sweet, malty aromas help the well rounded flavor. Itís got a great body and finishes nice and clean.

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 sailís session fest. Could hold up to even higher alcohol content. Iím thinking 7% or so.

12 oz bottle from Thriftway - Dark amber color. Clear. Not much character in the aroma. Very smooth taste. A little sweet and sour going on. Nice one.

Clear amber with brown overtones and a creamy off white head. Hardly any distinct aroma - perhaps a little graininess. Flavor is nutty with a little marzipan and caramel. Hopped just enough to keep the finish relatively dry. Nice beer but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely pours darker than the image shown on ratebeer however it is only by a little. Pours light-amber bordering on dark golden with amber highlights, decent white head, and clear as a filter. Head wafts of lager-like esters, sweet malt and slightly floral. Tastes right on for an amber lager, malty sweet but not heavy bodied. A decent amount of smooth bittering rounds out the palate. Hops are definitely of the noble variety with no ctirus or distinctly american hop characteristics present. Medium-light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a malty vienna lager that has more malt sweetness and a touch more bitterness than most amber lagers that arenít Oktoberfest style.

Pours a light copper color with barely any head. Aroma is a bit of biscuity malt with some strong yeast esters. Taste is smooth with a bit of doughy caramel flavor with some earthiness to it. Crisp on the palate. Fairly solid beer but not anything special.

Clear amber and nice maltiness with a subtle kiss of spicy hops. Lager lovers loves this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Aroma is rich caramel malt, some biscuit. Appearance is dark copper, clear, small tan head. Taste is rich malt forward. Fair amount of biscuit and bread as well. Minerally water. Smooth bitterness lingers in the end. Palate is medium light and very crisp and bright. Overall a very nice beer. Nicely malt forward but still crisp and very drinkable.

For a lager/amber i absolutely love this. This is one of those beers you need to keep in your fridge at all times, if only that were possible. Best of the LTD series yet
