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.

SilkTork (5752) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, - MAY 12, 2013
Old Mill, Plumstead Common. Hoopy little session bitter. Clean, dryish malt with dusty hops. Old fashioned and lacking in character (probably a one-off yeast in sterile fermenter), but drinkable.

vinivini (2535) - 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.

SarkyNorthener (4672) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
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 (5173) - 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.

allmyvinyl (10687) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Booths Penwortham. Pours clear amber, short-lived thin white head. Aromas are earthy, herbal, caramel. Taste is more of the same. Light body, thin finish. Ok.

slowrunner77 (12133) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"A thin but refreshing and flavorful (& destinctly English) beer. Aroma and flavor mostly toffee and nutty sweet malt, though some sharp floral hops come through just a little. Nice change of pace."
