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.

I guess amber lagers are this way, not impressive, but ok. Clear copper color, thin white haed. Hints of malt aroma, no hops. Caramel and malt flavors. Medium bodied, hop bitterness that lingered.

16oz Bottle. Pours a dark amber/orange with a nice, white, lingering head that laces very nicely. Aroma is mainly sweet malts with a hint of hop presence but nothing super notable. The flavor comes in sweet in the front with a bit of bitter at the end. So I guess that makes it fairly balanced. :) I do feel that there could be a little more to the flavor, it’s a fairly "safe" beer, however, it’s not bad.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Very slight lacing. Sweet caramel aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel, but more hops than I would have imagined. Would be a nice session beer, in my opinion.

One of the best beers I have ever had. It went down so smooth and tasted excellent. The finish was money. Yum yum, Milwaukee you are still the greatest.

A nice balance of hops and malt, not my favorite Sprecher though. Something feels skunky. Drink their Imperial, it’ll blow you away

cloudy orange/red color with thin head. very malty sweet aroma, a bit bready and hints of carmel. very sweet malty body with carmel and spice, alcohol comes through on this one...good hoppy bit in the finish.

Pours a great orange tinted brown. Large foamy head. The aroma is caraml, and a great hop boquet leaning towards the floral hops. Some decent lacing is evident as well. First sip is a blend of caramal sweetness with a mild hoppy bite, again mainly floral. The feeling is a light on the tongue, but dances around the taste buds. The finish is a decent light yeasty floral hoppiness, not too dry, not too wet. Very well rounded beer.
