COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

schweinhund (33) - Racine, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2012
12 oz can from Pick N Save in Racine, Kenosha’s big sister! Very nice Vienna style lager from one of our first microbrewers. Pours a coppertone with light wig. Gentle, small bubble carbonation. Aroma, taste and palate are a sweetly hopped bouquet of the brewer’s art Think: the girl from Ipanema at your lips! Compared to Capital Amber I have to give this the nod. Randy Sprecher’s benchmark offering now available in 12-pack cans, adding convenience for many of us. Very nice, Mr. Sprecher! Prosit.

Bottle at Oakcrest. Special Amber is a copper colored lager with a decent amount of hops and a slight bitter-grassy aftertaste. Medium-to-light bodied, and not especially smooth.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber pour with fine tan bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, toffee, a bit of trash, banana laffy taffy and peel, plus alcohol. Taste of old stale grain, banana, bit spicy, clove, and stale linger.
