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

12 oz bottle, pours an opaque dark brown color with little head. Aroma at first is sharply hoppy and dry but later becomes sweeter and maltier. Flavor is bitter with a bit of sweetness, kind of roasty. Palate is average, kind of rough, but somewhat full body. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

this is an alright upstate ny beer much better than a genny light, but that isnít saying much. i think this beer is a little overrated. but still has decent flavor to it

amber beers are invariably supposed to be "balanced" and whatnot, and this beer is no exception. however, letís be honest with ourselves here, no one drinking a beer is looking to get "balanced" by it...

nice malty aroma, strong even from an american pint glass.watery thin orange/copper color. hint of a nice flavor and mild hoppy finish. seems like they started with a nice amber and watered it down.

Golden amber body, white, foamy head that settles quickly. Looks elegant in a glass. Aroma is not strong but presents a bouquet of malt and hops. Flavor is somewhat weak, light malty flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Goes down easy and certainly doesnít offend. Overall, I think this is a good session beer and Iíd drink it again. Note: The bottle said New York Amber Lager. I donít know about that because it tasted distinctly like an ale. Either the bottle is misleading or this beer is in the wrong category. Whatever, itís the flavor that counts.
