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.

Bottle from OBriens, Athlone [161215]
Amber, clear, frothy white head, little head retention
Aroma of soft spicy hops, hint of citrus
Taste of caramel malt, soft spicy hops, touch of grain, dull
Palate - Medium carb, medium to light body, bit fizzy. Finish is soft bitter, fairly dry, hint of toasty malt
Overall - Less sweet than Brooklyn Lager. Didnt do a lot for me - found it dull.

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 (1743) - 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!

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 its not a detriment. Possibly the best example of this style Ive 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.
