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.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out herbal notes, some grassy notes and toasted bready malt. Flavour brings out bready malts and herbal notes. Pretty bland, but clean and drinkable. Itís okay, but very meh.

This is a pretty decent take on an amber lager. It is maybe a hair too sweet but not a disaster or anything. Itís a little cloudy w/ a foamy white head and lace in rings. There is a slightly piny hop note but itís mostly raisin-like malt. This is a full bodied brew and slightly sticky; I kind of wish it were a bit lighter. It finishes w/ a touch of bitterness and some grainy malt character. Iíd say this is serviceable but not a home run.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ BBQ. Amber in color with white foam. As expected, a good bready malt character and some toasty malts as well. Light floral hop note, some baked apple ester, and a little bit of brown sugar. Kind of grainy for my tastes, but itís not bad. Kind of bitter on the finish...okay.

IslandHaole (1133) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - SEP 30, 2015
A interesting mix of hay and cookie dough with hints of caramel and floral hops. A clear copper color with an off-white head. Sweet but not cloying, a touch of honey but enough hop bitterness to balance it. Not bad.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has musty, earthy hop qualities and a mild sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Not that bad.

12oz bottle, from my local kroger, split with jstax. Bottled 7/01/15. Clear amber red color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Up front, I get corn, vegetable, DMS. Some toasty malt, bit of caramel, and bigger spicier pepperiness. moderate sweet, light bitter taste. Medium body. Kind of crisp, mild soft lighter to moderate carbonation, mild slick finish. I have a lot of respect for sierra nevada, and really high hopes for this one, but it was pretty sweet, plain and disappointing over all.
