KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear honey brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that had decent retention and a nice amount of spotty lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, honey and a mild fruity ester. The taste was malty sweet with a pronounced caramel presence throughout with the finish having a good crisp hoppiness and a smooth lager feel. The flavor was short lived, evaporating a short time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a pretty straight forward Amber Lager with a great drinkability and a pleasant taste...

Bottle. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel, bread and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, bread, malts and a touch of hops. It had a medium body with mild carbonation and a sweet aftertaste. Not bad.

Hazy, light amber color with a thin head of semi-creamy offwhite colored foam. Caramel and raisin notes on the aroma. More caramel and some toffee on the taste with a subtle floral hop character going on.

draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained off white head, over a clear dark amber (SRM 11) body.....nose is toasted malts with melanoidin, no cocoa, minimal hops, no eaters......taste is toasted malts with cracker and toasted bread tones, no caramel, no eaters, dry throughout, slight hop spice, finishing with moderate bitterness........mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol high carbonation. This is a very clean, lightly toasted beer, nicely balanced between malts and hops, but overall simple in aroma and taste. It is an easy drinking summer beer. BJCP 9/3/16/4/7

Slightly bready malts with a watery aftertaste. Nothing impressive on the flavor front but nothing really offensive.

It might not be the hottest beer style, but, this is one of the best Ambers out there

Shared at a tasting, small bubbly creamy head, clear dark orange color, aroma of candy, stewed fruit, caramel and cakey maltiness, light caramel flavor with some stewed fruits, dry and a bit sour. Drinkable but a bit bland.

Pretty solid Amber. You can taste a little more spice than a usual Amber. It's good though. Nothing special, however. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
