Our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts. The flavor plays slightly toward caramel and toasted lager malt but remains balanced and drinkable with a clean finish perfect for a summer session.

Pours a clear reddish copper with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, light nuttiness and a clean floral lager yeast Aroma in the background. Taste is much of the same with a smooth malty base complimented nicely by a smooth clean and crisp finish. Sierra Nevada is a brewery that brews excellent beers to style!

Tried at Craft Beer Market YEG. Sierra Nevada tap takeover Nov 18. Toasted caramel malt flavour with some caramel and grain flavours. Easy drinking!

So much maltt. Very solid beer, will made. BUT so what? Kudos to then for making such a fine beverage but it gets no points on the above measures. Appearance is a high point. Malt is non offensive. Everything else is non offensive. Really minimal flaws but leaves nothing positive to say. So um, there is my rank.

12 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Aroma is dough, chalk, caramel. Pours slightly hazy orange with a medium beige soapy head with good retention and a little lace. Taste is sweet, biscuity, spicy, toasty, clean. Body is a little thin, but it’s not a detriment. Possibly the best example of this style I’ve ever had.

Sweet caramel malt aroma. Deep brownish amber with a modest off-white head. Malty caramel taste with medium bodied feel. Clean refreshing finish. Quality brew.

12 oz bottle. Bottled on 8/10/15. From a trade with IslandHaole. Thanks Dan!
Slightly cloudy amber color with a small white head. Caramel, fudge, bready malt and mild hoppy dryness in the aroma. The flavor is dry hops, mild bitterness, bready malt and some dark sugary sweetness. Decent.

Bottle from Fall pack. Clear orange-amber pour with fine-bubbled white head, poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. Minimal lacing. Gently toasted grain accompanied by moderate honeyed sweetness. Short lightly bitter clean finish. Overall: First bottle I had I found really disappointing. Tonight, though, this is doing the trick. Not a style I’m ever likely to love, but right now it’s hitting the spot.

Aroma is malty, caramel, rustic, yeasty, pretzelly. Actually, I wish I had some pretzels on hand to drink with this, they’d probably pair well. The taste is malt-centric, but not overwhelming, somewhat comparable to the all-malt Michelob with perhaps a slightly better profile and a little more hops (Or a much better more malty and hoppy Yuengling). It’s bready like a soft pretzel or caibatta bread. The hops are definitely there and easily distinguishable as being present, but are muted relative to Sam Adams Boston Lager, which I guessing this beer is Sierra Nevada’s answer to. I’ll take a Boston Lager, personally, all else being equal, but this is a pretty solid basic beer.

Amber with an off white head. Toast. Sweet caramel. Earth. Semi dry. Minimal bitterness. Tips sweet but not unbalanced. Good drinkability. Enjoyable but not special.
