Lancaster Amber is a high quality, session beer. Punching above its weight in flavour, Amber, at 3.7% abv, is a low strength bitter that is dark gold in colour and complements its flavour profile with an abundantly hoppy bouquet allowing the drinker to relish subtle floral and citrus aromas. This is a classic session bitter that is both aromatic and bursting with flavour.

Cask at Sun Inn. Pours a clear amber gold with a white that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma is full of biscuit with sweet grains and hay backing. Flavor following the same notes with biscuit, sweet grains and hay throughout.

Cask at the Running Horse, Leatherhead. With so much good beer everywhere now, I find it hard to keep patience with this sort of old-school bitter. Some earthy, metallic bitterness but a water palate and nothing going on of interest. Drinkable but really quite boring.

vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle at 3.6% ABV. Music amber pour with average off-white head. A thin foam layer stays. Nice laces. Aroma: caramel, buscuit, metal, hopy hints. Light body. Malty front taste. Pretty dry. Caramel. The ending is balanced. The hops show spicy and earthy light bitterness. Some esters break through in the aftertaste. Mediocre ale.

very nice amber. very fruity, and the apprearance is delightful.It is not easy to brew it to such a multy taste with such low alcohol .

On cask at the White Cross, Lancaster. After 6 straight golden ales I’m delighted to be trying any other style. It says amber though it’s on here as a bitter. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - hay, toffee and a hint of red fruit. Taste - red fruit and light biscuit. The toffee follows it through. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - yeah, could be argued as either an amber ale or a bitter. Good ale and great to hit something more malty after 6 golden ales.

Bottle from asda, wirral. Copper beer with medium head. Aroma is toffee, male and nuts. Taste is quite nutty, toffee and a slightly dry malt finish. Decent stuff.

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Backlog rating on 12-17-2012 (Bottle) This beer forms a small beige head with a short retention, orange transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, citrus hops and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink and is a session beer. It has a light bitter aftertaste.
