OK, it's only a lager, but the combination of malt, floral hops, and long finish, plus surprisingly complexity for a lager, made it quite pleasant. Of course, some of this may be location. I had this on a balcony in New York on Central Park West, overlooking the Park and the City at night.

Dry, low to medium hoppy flavor. Slightly acidic. Hop bittering makes for a long finish. A little woody. Very drinkable, a good companion for beef or portk. Distinct orange, persistant head.

Orange/copper color. Average head. Aroma of Saaz and malt. Mild to a fault. Thin and unimpressive.

This lager is just a touch sour. Itís frothy in the mouth and is more hopped than I expected. Fairly crisp.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 9, 2002
Chill hazed amber. Thin white head. Light carbonation. Toasty aroma, some light floral and citric hops and some wet cardboard. Medium bodied, quite full. Slightly citric and floral hop flavor atop a light toasted sweet malt base. A bit of oxidation and wet paper and semi-flat hops. Nice body for a lager. This has potential but Iím not buying this again until they have dated packaging.

I miss this beer so much. I cannot find this beer in my local stores anymore. Itís smooth, with a nice understated hop flvaor. Beautiful.

I havenít had it in a while. What I remember was nice copper color...and taste very similar to Sam Adams Lager. Very drinkable.

Iíve been a fan of New Amsterdam products for many years. More difficult to find now that Iím in FLA. This is a quality amber lager. Lots of toasty malt in aroma and flavor; generous hops; moderate bitterness; smooth, long, malty finish. Refreshing and clean, but still very full tasting.
