Very smooth and drinkable, sweet nutty taste, just right on the palate - not too light not too heavy. Easy to drink and goes great with any meal.

On the palate this beer has slightly malty finish that evokes a bite of wheat bread. Stands alone well.

Once you open the bottle, it’s very hard to put it down. The only part you put down is the beer down your throat. It’s awesome!

With the first batch of his namesake Amber, Karl shared a beer and a passion that changed brewing in San Diego. Imported Munich malts give our original flagship the deep bronze color and crisp toasted malt flavors of a Vienna-style lager, while Cascade hops and our proprietary yeast strain lend a smooth body and clean finish. Brewed in small batches since 1989, Karl Strauss Amber remains San Diego’s original session beer.
Great light lager, smooth not hoppy, tasty malt.

A whole lot of Munich malt here -has a tootsie roll flavor, very flavorful for a Vienna. I like it.

Appearance: A rich reddish, amber color. Decent foamy head.
Smell: I got toasty and bready notes in the nose.
Taste: A ton of caramel and toffee malt sweetness. Not that this tastes like a sugar bomb cider or anything. Just a nice refreshing change of pace from San Di-Hop-o IIIIIIIPAs. First sip to last gulp, I’m a fan of this Amber ale.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, straight down the middle.
Drinkability: Definitely a recommendation and on my go-to list for easy drinking beers.
