First off, let me confess I don’t have great expectations of this , or any other beer with "Amber" on the label. But, that said, this isn’t 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 don’t recall having a beer with Willamen hops, that must be the scent I can’t quite nail down. Has a slight mineral quality as well.

Intense grain and bread malts, caramel. Clear, dark gold, medium, creamy, off-white head. Medium sweet. More sweet grain malts, lively carbonation, light bitterness coming up in the finish. OK Amber, nothing too spectacular though. Keg at brewery, Milwaukee.

On tap in Burlington Iowa afternoon before the Dead & Co show. Pretty disappointing. Some malt and bread flavors, but generally a cardboardy lager quality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank this beer from a glass poured from a bottle,
this beer had a medium to dark brown and red pour with a good mix of haze and gave a one finger white and faint off-white cover that receded to a ring and thin layer of bubbles, it left some small fingers and spots of lacing on the glass,
the nose had munich malt with some melanoidins, a little dark toasted malt, some toasted bread and caramel like notes with light hops, a little malt sweetness,
there was munich malt with dark malt flavors, light citrus and spice hops, some dark toasted bread and faint caramel with malt/bread medium sweetness, there was a hint of brown sugar like sweetness but not quite there,
the mouth feel was light with average carbonation, it was creamy on the lips,
this beer resembled a dark amber beer with a mix of dark Octoberfest beer on the nose and flavor, it was tasty and in some ways reminds me of the Short’s older version of Noble Chaos before they changed the beer to it’s current state, this was a good drink.

Thank you, Lakefront Brewery, there in Milwaukee; this, too, is a beer that should make Milwaukee famous.

This beer is a sweet treat. If you like desserts. I’m diabetic. I want to like the flavor she gives me, but it’s an insulin depleting challenge.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber-orange with many fine particles and a decent khaki-cream head that leaves some soapy, stringy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, lightly metallic lager yeast, some noble hop spice and light pine. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, oily, active, with a toasty lager finish. Nice amber lager.
