Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Clear amber color with a foamy, white head. Okay head retention. Aroma: Malty nose with hints of grain and caramel. A touch of euro lager. Flavor: Closely follows the nose with some decent back bitterness. Mostly malt and light caramel notes though. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel and a medium, slightly bitter finish. Overall: There are better ambers out there.

Not too different than the lager. Tastes a little maltier. Slightly roasted notes on the nose and taste. Really crispy head. Malty, skunky taste. Not too bad.
