COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled Aug week 4. Poured amber with a creamy off-white head that settles to a ring. Malty aroma with a hop background. The flavor found caramel and grass hops with just a slight hint of spice. Light body and light bitterness.

First off, let me confess I donít have great expectations of this , or any other beer with "Amber" on the label. But, that said, this isnít bad. Clear light copper color, sweet with hints of roasty caramel and wildflowers, not much in the cascade hops but still has a touch of bitterness in the follow. I donít recall having a beer with Willamen hops, that must be the scent I canít quite nail down. Has a slight mineral quality as well.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Very inoffensive stuff. Not great but not bad either. Very malt driven with a touch of sweetness behind it and some floral hops. Solid session stuff

rosenbergh (9999) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head. Mild sweet toffee, malt and banana in the aroma. The flavour is quite easy but thereís nothing wrong with it. Dryish malt, banana sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. I donít know what the banana is doing here. Drinkable, forgettable.

TXBadger (2459) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
A very good amber lager. Roasted malt and barley on the nose with just a hint of pine. Finishes with a sweet caramel note. A small amount of floral hop flavor does sneak in on the palate.

Ernest (7247) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Not a whole lot going on, and rather metallic in the finish, but ok.

I donít know what to say. I thought this beer was mediocre at best. Now I find out itís Lakefrontís second best rated beer. No way is it a 3.6+. Let me let you in on a secret. This beer is the exact same as the Cream City Pale Ale. Only difference is this one is dominated by the malt. They used the exact same hops just steeped in more grain and used lager yeast. Too full bodied to enjoy for such a lame tasting beer.
