COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Lancaster Amber is a high quality, session beer. Punching above its weight in flavour, Amber, at 3.7% abv, is a low strength bitter that is dark gold in colour and complements its flavour profile with an abundantly hoppy bouquet allowing the drinker to relish subtle floral and citrus aromas. This is a classic session bitter that is both aromatic and bursting with flavour.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"A thin but refreshing and flavorful (& destinctly English) beer. Aroma and flavor mostly toffee and nutty sweet malt, though some sharp floral hops come through just a little. Nice change of pace."
