Decent head with great carbonation. Color is a medium/light amber with good clarity. Aroma is malty with a trace of hops. Flavor is a little thin but well balanced between the grain and the hops. Slight bitter finish from the hops which is nice a leaves a plesant aftertaste. A good all around beer. Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2004
A nice malty and sweet beer. Could be a little more powerful, but as it is now it is a good thirst quencher. People went crazy because I started to drink it on the street. What the hell is wrong with that?? Why the fu*k is it not allowed?? jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep rubyish/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of bread and cereal malts with a little toastiness and some light hops. Not that hoppy on the finish. Average texture. Decent, but not great. gripweed57 (2462) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2017
From old tasting notes. Orange amber color. Small bubble carbonation. Beige head is ample. Toasted malt nose is fruity and sweet. Flavor is hoppy with a semisweet toasted maltiness. Medium bodied with good balance. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2002
This lager is just a touch sour. It’s frothy in the mouth and is more hopped than I expected. Fairly crisp.

Dark murky amber, medium head; not much lacing. Bread and cookies with a bunch of caramel sweetness and a mostly dry finish. A decent beer to drink with dinner. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours a two finger cream head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Hoppy nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor has some caramel which is quickly overwhelmed by the hops, finish is typical amber - hoppy and bitter. Bottle is labeled Amber Beer Single Batch but recipe is same as New York Amber from July 2002 - two row toasted malt with cascade and Hallertauer hops. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

12 oz bottle. I remember drinking this back when I first got into craft beer, or microbrews as they were called, back in the early 90’s. After cracking this one open and drinking it I must admit it’s pretty much the way I remebered it.....decent looking amber body with a smaller slightly bubbly off white head, sweet aroma with notes of caramel and toffee and a similar taste with a medium mouthfeel but lots of carbonation. Nothing special by any means other then the nostalgia for me but boy does this one take me back. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Malty apple aroma. Clear dark orange color with a small white head. Sweet beginning with a light amount of bitterness. Bitterness fades in the finish leaving a light palate and mild sweetness.
