This lager is excellent. It has an appealing aroma, in a pilsner glass it has a pleasing clear amber color. It ours forming a neat head of about 1í, after drinking laces the glass nicely. The taste is par excellent, easy on the palate and finishes nicely, not "dry" or bitter, leaving one desiring more. Overall it reminds me of a great German Lager, but half the price. The brewer sought to mimic German Lager and he is largely successful, it is brewed in Texas and Ohio, and distributed by MillerCoors, an excellent tandem making it very accessible. Nice Website.

I love this beer, itís one of my favorites, an AMBER well balanced with just enough attitude to stand on itís own two feet and say "hey, iím special". It has a nice complexity and a balance of roasted malty goodness without being too bitter (though it has a nice complexity from the hops itís well balanced). At certain times, however, when iím not very accustomed to drinking beer it seems a bit sweet. Generally speaking itís a nicely balanced amber and would beat our typical Texan bocks, or blondes hands down. The brewerís passion for beer is apparent in the fabulous and well balanced flavors.

Had this at our second annual Easter Beer Hunt. A gold medal winner, and I can see why.

Pleasant aroma, beautiful, amber color. The head is fairly thin and dissipates quickly, no real lace. But, the taste is very nice, after finding out it was made by Coors/Miller I was expecting a corn/rice flavor, but itís fairly malty. Also, feels very good on the palate. All in all, pretty good beer. Iíd buy it again.

Looked good. Amber to a bit tan and clear, very nice head that lasted quite a bit and left pretty good lacing. Smells pretty good too, both hoppy and malty but more on the hop side. Taste is pretty good too. A good malty base accented with a surprising amount of hops. Body is light, well carbonated, and extremely drinkable. I wonder how many of the reviews of this beer are negative because itís a coors product. Whilst not being a big fan of the big breweries, this beer is pretty good, and should be given its due. However, had I researched it a bit more I may have passed on it once I discovered it was from coors. That in itself should say something to any coors representatives reading this review. However, once again, a good beer is a good beer, regardless of who produced it. This is a good beer, and my review reflects that. Is it the best vienna lager ever? Probably not. But itís damn enjoyable.

Wow, Coors fooled me here for sure. Pours somewhat clear but a bit hazy amber with a smaller gray head. Aroma and flavor are sweet, clean malts with a balanced crispness that go great with pizza.

Third Shift Amber Lager has an extremely thin, white head, which quickly dies away and very little lacing left behind. The appearance is amber and clear, with some streaming bubbles. Aroma is of sweet bread crust and is faint. Taste is of sweet, roasted malt, bread crust, a little bit of caramel, and a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery, and Third Shift Amber Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and mild. Overall, this is a good beer, and I would think itís worth trying at least once. RJT
