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.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, - MAY 12, 2013
Old Mill, Plumstead Common. Hoopy little session bitter. Clean, dryish malt with dusty hops. Old fashioned and lacking in character (probably a one-off yeast in sterile fermenter), but drinkable.

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

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Cask at the Basketmakers Arms, Brighton. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, toasty, leather, old furniture shop and dirt. The taste is toasty, earth, twig, leather, brown bread and wood with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. A fairly bland, twiggy number. So-so.

gegwilson (1164) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle in the Head, Sedbergh. Amber with a fading white head. Quite a malty brew. Simple, but drinkable enough.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a large, off-white head and visible force carbonation. Malt heavy aroma, with some synthetic sugary notes and floral hop. Light flavours; some grassy hops and nutty malty sweetness. Finish was cream-soda and typical pasteurised notes with some sweet malt.

Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Autumnal BF, Engy Green, 11/10/13 - Bday XXXIX. Clear copper with a thin off white head. Nose is toffee, bread dough, dark fruits. Taste comprises toffee, paper, fruit cake, bitter orange. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Average affair.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Rugby 15/06/13. More copper than amber for my eyes with a tight white head and lace. Creamy notes to the nose which may be the fault of the sparkler. Citrus in the mouth. Hops are decent, and the beer is plesant and refreshing. A good session beer.
