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.

Draught at Sin City Brewing at Flamingo. Strong aroma of caramel malt penetrates the nose with some nutty aromas mixed in. Big amber colour with a lot of foam. In the mouth it is full and well bodied and a well brewed beer with some complexity.

Sampled this one on draught at the Sin City Brewing Company, which is not a brewery, but a draught oulet in the Aladin Hotel and Casino’s Desert Passage Mall. The beer is actually brewed at Gordon Biersch Las Vegas. This beer is a marzen/Oktoberfest by style, and it is a decent, domestic example of one. Pours to a beautiful, bright, amber color, with a thick white head, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with some nice aromas of toasty and nutty malt, paired with light hints of grassy hops. The palate is smooth and clean, with some good flavor of toasty and nutty malt. This beer finishes with more toasty and nutty malt up front, then ends with some good grassy hop bitterness to balance this beer out. A pretty straight foward example of marzen. Not the type of beer that is going to make a beer geek sit up and spin, but one a beer lover could enjoy. I would have liked a touch more malt character, but this being Vegas, and with the blazing heat, I enjoyed the fact that this beer was so drinkable, and still delivered some character and flavor. Worth a try if you are in Vegas.

draft at "pub"-call me crazy, or quality beer deprived being in vegas, but I enjoyed this. Crisp, flavorful malt with spices with some nice subtle earthy bitterness.

On tap at pour 24 in ny,ny. Pours a clear copper golden with a small frotht white head. The aroma is a fruity malt with caramel and raisin. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet fruit malt with raisin and a nice crisp finish. Easy to drink a good marzen from sin city.

Had on tap at the New York-New York. Nothing much to this beer. Reminded me of a macro amber....reddish orange color, thin off white head and medium bodied. Little aroma or actual taste, and the finish was okay. Nothing wrong with this beer, just nothing that stood out either. Ho-hum.

On draught at the Las Vegas Sports Lounge at the airport. The beer pours a clear dark ambe color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grainy malt and mild hops. Light body with flavors of sweet caramel malt and grain, along with touches of druit and hops. The finish is sweet and malty at first and leaves a short light hoppy aftertaste. Average overall.
