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 in pint glass. From Signal Variety Plaistow NH. Aroma is strong bread and caramel malts, light hay, hint of chocolate. Appearance is gorgeous, clear, golden amber with light sparkle and finger-width off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Taste is rich sweetness, caramel with a pleasant mild alcohol flavor. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and slightly bitter, dry (like removed moisture from my top teeth feeling) finish. Overall, this beer is very true to the style and to the brewer’s description (a seeming rarity). Appearance is the big winner but with a nice aroma and taste.

2015 bottle. Color of fall leaves with a milf white head. Very light bready aroma with a smidge of caramel. Taste is toasted bread with caramel and a little spice and bitterness at the end. Well balanced and mild. Nice transition beer from the summer to fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Bread, malt, toast aromas. Toffee, toast, caramel flavors. A very refreshing amber lager. Plenty of flavor, yet still very drinkable and tasty. Very nice Sierra Nevada.

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Solid easy drinking amber lager with a good balance between malt and hops, a clean, crisp finish and a decent body. Low on flavor and aroma.

DATE TASTED: October 12, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner pokal... OCCASION: Happy sixth birthday, Michael... APPEARANCE: handsome dark amber body; reasonably effervescent; thick, rich three-finger off-white head that settles into articulate Cyrillic arcs and arches ... AROMA: slightly smoky; superior caramel malts; some pepper and peppercorn; some oats and dough late--a burnt toffee ending... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly creamy; slightly crunchy, with clean finish....TASTE:sweet, tempered toffee malts meld with spirited hops--bright and slightly floral--to develop a symbiotic sip... OVERALL: a crisp, malty/hoppy lager that delivers a sweet toffee reward; a good appreciation of the genre....
