Cloudy, red amber body with a substantial, but disappearing head. Aroma is floral hops, and spicy with some sweet malt; not very strong. Flavor is floral hops and fruit (tart apples), malt, and buttery. Somewhat watery, but in a drinkable, refreshing way. Light mouthfeel.

I was fairly impressed with this beer in that I got more than I expected. As the name implies, it is amber in color with a slight malt aroma. The hop aroma is even more slight. Decent malt flavor, but lacking in mouthfell. Only slight bitterness, which I would expect. This doesn’t approach the complexity of a good marzen, but not bad. I should add a caveat - I don’t general like lighter lagers at all.

Pours a deep golden orange color with a light off white head. Some sour aroma. Sour flavor as well. Very little carbonation.

Looks great with a good white head and a deep amber body, smells great with a creamy malty aroma and then taste like an old tin can. There is definatly something lacking in the taste of this beer which is a big let down because I liked their black raddish brew alot.

I have had this beer on tap, in bottles, and in the takeaway fresh kegs and really like it. It is not a heavy beer, but is refreshing with a nice creamy head and good bite. You can drink a lot which is good at the beach.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with a yeasty aroma and watery, yeasty flavor. Soft bitter finish and subtle spiciness can not bring any life to this. Not terrible, just terribly boring.

I was surprised at how watery tasting this beer was. While it looks nice, it has a very light malt taste and smell to it and that's pretty much it. Easy to drink, but altogether kind of boring.
