The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

Tmoney99 (12415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle from Cock&Bull. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good to excellent lacing. Moderate roasted apple bread and cascade hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy food.

Drake (11156) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle from a sampler from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Looks nice... a deep copper color with small but stubborn head. Aroma is caramel and hops. Taste too has a nice bitterness balancing out the hops. All-malt this is not, but it does taste quite nice.

Another from the lakefront mix pack I picked up at total wine. Amber pour. Lots of caramel, light hops, grains and lots of boringness. Flavor is much the same. Not all that horrible. But boring. Malty and grainy...a bit sweet. Light hop bite at the fnish.

An Amber lager with a touch more character than most, but it is still an Amber lager how are you supposed to get excited.
