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.

Draft. Amber beer with a low whitish head. Low spicey aroma. Light caramel and spicey flavor. Medium bodied. Lingering spice.

I had this on tap this past weekend at the Sierra Nevada Tap Room. The bartender informed me that this new brew has only been out for about a week at this time. Normally I prefere ales, but I’m always willing to try new brews, and occasionally I do like a lager or pilsner. Anyway, as lagers go this one was pretty good. Aroma was almost non-detectable; very slight malt. Poured nice dark golden color with a slight head which dissipated fairly quickly but left a nice lacing all the way through the pint. Carbonation was good and nice medium body. The foretaste slightly toasted malt with a nice bitter finish, much as you’d expect from an ale. As lagers go, this is among the better offerings out there and definitely worth the price of 2.25 a pint.
