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.

On cask at the White Cross, Lancaster. After 6 straight golden ales Iím delighted to be trying any other style. It says amber though itís on here as a bitter. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - hay, toffee and a hint of red fruit. Taste - red fruit and light biscuit. The toffee follows it through. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - yeah, could be argued as either an amber ale or a bitter. Good ale and great to hit something more malty after 6 golden ales.

Backlog rating on 12-17-2012 (Bottle) This beer forms a small beige head with a short retention, orange transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, citrus hops and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink and is a session beer. It has a light bitter aftertaste.

"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."

As the name suggests pours an amber colour, taste and aroma is well balanced with some nice malts. Quite a solid bitter. On Cask at Nantwich Food and Drink Festival 6/9/2014
