COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full-bodied and proud! This amber-hued lager may be an Octoberfest-style beer, but it is available to be enjoyed year round. A strong, robust micro-brewed lager, using imported 2- row Pale malt and 2 distinct Munich specialty malts, Sin City Amber balances its full-bodied, malt character with imported German Hallertauer hops.

(draft @ Sin City Brewing Company - Las Vegas, NV) Dark copper with a very thin amount of white head. Heavy sweetness and malts in the aroma. Some light grain but mainly sweetness. Flavor is sweet and malty with just a very light hop touch. Not very well balanced, but has good flavor.

Got on tap at some burger joint in Vegas. A light amber beer but not all that much flavor. However, I did win a poker tourney right after this so I have fond memories of Sin City Amber.

On tap at Sin City in the Flamingo as Oktoberfest and apparently as the Amber as well. Had it as the Oktoberfest, and the bartender who didn’t seem to know anything about the beer wasn’t really forthcoming, so I’m glad we didn’t get a duplicate of what was a mediocre beer at best. Pours a clear light brown with a thin white head. Light malt and toast on the nose. Malty, with a bit of banana and a light toffee flavor. Sweet and lightly bitter finish.

Taverner (1081) - San Ramon, California, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours an amber with wispy white head. Flavor is a yeasty bready aroma. Very lagerish - very drinkable Oktoberfest beer.

Enjoyed this a couple of years back on the Miracle Mile while on vacation in Las Vegas. A decent brew, but nothing special.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Enjoyed at the Flamingo brewpub. A tan head of large bubbles. Light malt and roasted nose. Sweet malty flavor with nuts and a bit of floral notes. Well carbonated.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Draught @ Flamingo hotel Sin City brewery. Large creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy golden color. Light malty caramel, toasted and a hint of nutty notes. Over the palate a whiff of floral notes. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Light sweet malty finish.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a light copper color with minimal head. Some light citrus notes. Overall a basic beer that is akin to your average commercial beers, not a good depiction of an amber style beer.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap at there Planet Hollywood location. Served in a plastic cup, which is quite lame, but it is Vegas. Not a big fan of this one at all. Looked fine, a dark amber color with a nice head. Aroma of caramel and sweet malt. There was something very offputting about the flavor; something akin to rotting rye. Can’t see myself every having this one again.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2009
draft @ Sin City inFlamingo, Vegas. Pours copper, off white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste, malty with very light notes of caramel, hoppy finish, possibly some light fruit notes. Too basic and boring, yet drinkable.
