COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Lager

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
Draught GBBF 09. An amber coloured beer with a sponge like whitish head. The aroma is malty biscuity with brown bread. The taste is quite rough burnt bread, fruitcake and oats. Undignified and a little unpleasant in the mouth in some ways.

PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml swing top bottle. Light copper, cola colored pour, spritzy off white head. Aroma of fresh lake water. Brief caramel in the flavor with some nuttiness and a metallic finish. Thinnish mouthfeel with too much carbonation. Unremarkable.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2009
Flaske 0,5l fra bestillingsutvalget til Systembolaget. Gyldenbrun på farge. Høyt luftig skum som varer noen minutter men flater nesten helt ut. Aromaen er maltig med litt frukt. Smaken er avrundet og sammensatt først med innslag av frukt så litt røstet malt og krydder. Glir over i en tørr bitterhet. KI=5

jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle. Chestnut, golden foam. Fresh saaz with light nutty undertones. Malt character stays in the background on this one - a nutty roaastyness with complements a elegant sublte flowery start, light citric notes. Chewy body, light sparkly mouthfeel. Earthy and roasted retronasal. Nice.

3.3
larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with strong carbonation. Vague earthy caramelly aroma with rubbery notes. Sweetish earthy caramelly taste with roasty mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy rubbery roasted caramel aftertaste with syrupy rye crisp bread notes. Very nice, and highly drinkable, with real character. The roasted caramel flavour is impressively vivid. (0.5l bottle, from Toft Vin, Copenhagen.)
