COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by the original Wheat Beer Pioneers, Amber Weizen is left unfiltered for extra flavor and aroma. Rich amber in color, Pyramid Amber Weizen features three different kinds of caramel barley malts and nugget hops resulting in an exceptionally smooth and well-balanced beer that follows in the tradition of our flagship style, Pyramid Hefe Weizen.

Eh? Not my favorite, to me it just seems kind of typical. Nothing really stands out in my opinion. A bit of spice, fruit and wheat...thats it. I will finish my sixer, but probably wont buy again.

"OK" beer.Light amber hazy pour with small head. Mild malt and cereal. Fizzy and un refined. Worth a try but not a keeper.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Slightly brown, slightly red, the head was almost off-white, fizzy and produced minimal lacing. The aroma was malt, dry wheat and some fruit. The flavor was like a light dopplebock. Banana came through with some malt and slight wheat dryness. The mouthfeel was thin and the finish was fairly dry.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2008
On tap @ Oakland Airport poured a cloudy amber with a lasting light amber head. Aromas of wheat, carmel, light spice and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, wheat, light fruittiness and light spice with a smooth malty finish.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Poured a hazy orange color with a huge sparse head that disappeared quickly leaving little lacing. Aroma was spicy with hints of wheat and yeast. Taste was sweet malt and some citrus. Not a great wheat beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Unfiltered orange with large quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, wheat, and cereal. Taste of caramel, yeast, sweet malt, lemon and wheat. Creamy body is a bit thin but it packs a nice crisp spicy finish. Middle of the road (at best) wheat beer.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Listed as Pyramid Amber Ale at the Ale House inside the Oakland Airport (on Tap). Not really appealing to drink. Pours a murky/muddy brown color with a small, off-white head. Aroma of wheat and amber/caramel malts. Taste is a nutty wheat beer with a bit of metal on the finish. Watery and fizzy.

scooterbub (813) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2008 Bottle. Pours a hazy red-caramel color with a large beige head that completely fades away rather fast. Aroma is of yeast, wheat, alcohol and is sort of sweet. Taste is similar, but malt is present. Not a bad beer as it is inexpensive, but it was pretty hard to pour. It would probably be better if I had a fresher batch or if it was on tap.
