COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German Dunkel inspired American Amber Lager with a signature hop aroma. This lager boasts a bit more malt backbone and overall character than most Amber Lagers out there today. It has an elegant copper color formed by mostly Munich malt, with the addition of gently balanced caramelized malts. When you add in a complex combination of noble hops, it enables our lager to be paired with a wide variety of food items and will really hit the spot on those Hot summer afternoons.

3fourths (9057) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2016
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Clear chestnut brown with a tan-colored head of some retention. Malt and yeast-driven aroma is burnt caramel syrup, over-caramelized (scorched) barley, burnt popcorn, cookie batter, and faint soil / manure notes. Medium-light body, sweet with low bitterness, plump carbonation, syrupy finish with mild pepper and green leaf hoppiness. Terribly crude beer, it smells and tastes like raw barley and sawdust, what the hell, man?

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark ruby black color with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. The taste is very similar to a nut brown ale.

Soured_Hops (38) - California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Not as crisp as I'd want in a lager, but interesting none the less. Appearance is crystal clear Amber brown. Nice flavor and very smooth. An all day drinker for sure. Alabama is making some solid stuff.

REDMAN1 (2) - Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2014 does not count
Great smooth flavor. There seems to be a small hint of sweetness that I think is honey. Like the label of a black bear with a fish in its mouth, awesome beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
