Funky mild aroma of bread and sweet malt. Darker than expected color, light orange with a tan head. Sweet bready malt up front, some mild notes of spices. Finishes with an off sweetness, and the bitterness is metalic and uneven. Oily mouthfeel. Meh.

Frank (2758) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
This is a clear orange amber brew with a scant white head. This is a mildly sweet lager and fairly clean aside from a slight metallic note. This isnít a complete disaster but really nothing Iím looking forward to drinking again.

Sample at the Moerlein Lager House on 9/13/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Malty sweet aroma, almost corny. Malt and sweet corn flavor with slight peachiness before a crisp finish.

burg326 (3543) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured an amber color aromas of grains, and some light malt. Flavors are the same, not off putting, but highly drinkable if you were going on a bender and didnít want to drink macro swill.

16oz red solo cup, from a keg. So iím slamming these at a house party not thinking twice, and after a bit I look down to notice this strange amber but nearing ruby color from my beer, surprised thinking iíd been slamming macro lagers all night, I discover Iím drinking "Hoody" or Hudy, limited flavor tastes like cheap beer, but has a nice looking appearance so high marks there.

11/02/2010: Hudepohl Amber Lager... Aroma: Thin, grainy caramel maltiness; sharp edge. Appearance: Clean, transparent amber-gold color with a thin, frothy off-white head. Flavor: Grainy maltiness; quite beery; slightly sweet in the front; browned butter (maybe more like caramelized butterscotch); sharp, spicy bite in the metallic finish. Palate: Medium, crisp becoming semi-harsh. Overall: The juryís still out on this one; I canít quite decide if it is bad or just edgy enough to be interesting; getting through a 6-pack wonít be easy, but itís growing on me. THIS BEER IS BEST OUT IN THE 24 FL. OZ. CAN (it tastes way better than in a bottle or on tap!).

12 fl. oz. bottle (twist-off cap) from Biggís Hypermarket in Harrison, Ohio. Rating #44 for this beer.
