COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Listigovers (611) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Pours amber with small head. Smells malty, biscuity, sweet bread. Tastes very bready, toasty, light bodied but the maltiness makes it less refreshing. Pretty good.

Tasting at Matt’s, packaged 07/01/15
Amber color, small dissipating head. Very simple malt aroma and flavor, low bitterness; clean; nothing bad with it, just terribly boring.

Taste of caramel malt, soft spicy hops, touch of grain, dull

Overall - Less sweet than Brooklyn Lager. Didn’t do a lot for me - found it dull.

beer_rookie (261) - USA - DEC 19, 2015
Pours a beautiful orange or light bronze, or amber. About one finger tan head. Well carbonated.

Aroma is very malty, lightly toasted. A little nutty. A little caramel and toffee. Subtle, yet complex.

Taste is very malty. Did I mention it was malty? Sweet, but almost cloying, not quite. Enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. Toasted malts shine here. A little nutty, a little caramel. Reminds me a lot of a marzen, but maybe a tad sweeter.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Dry, super clean finish. Super drinkable. Maybe a tad bitter right at the very end.

Overall, this is great. Much better than I expected. This is a winner. Do try this one!!!

Tea, honey, pecan, dried leaves nose. Clear orange, medium head. Honey and pecan, honeycomb cereal finish. Mildly sweet, far from cloying. Light body, easy carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Reimer96 (1731) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
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!
