COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

(on tap) A very even-tempered brew. Medium copper color with a thinnish head. A very full taste that leans a little to the bitter side. Maybe slightly over-carbonated, but very nice!

fairly ok beer. real robust malty flavor. but I don’t think I can drink many of these. big downside is that blasted 16 oz bottles warm to fast for a bocce ball sipping beer. Major penelty on overall score because it is horribly overpriced.

A quality amber lager. Looks a bit better than the flavor that I got. Pours a gorgeous copper color with a puffy white head. Very nice. Aroma is decent, though not quite as floral as a top Vienna, like a Sam Boston Lager. A bit over bittered on the back of the palate. Enjoyable, but not one of the best. Would definitely order again, if given the opportunity.

Big solid frothy head. Clear amber color body. Aroma: sweet, hoppy, fruity, notes of peach and bread. Flavor: sweet, honey, anice, flowery, bitterish end. Dry finish; sticky palate.

I guess amber lagers are this way, not impressive, but ok. Clear copper color, thin white haed. Hints of malt aroma, no hops. Caramel and malt flavors. Medium bodied, hop bitterness that lingered.

16oz Bottle. Pours a dark amber/orange with a nice, white, lingering head that laces very nicely. Aroma is mainly sweet malts with a hint of hop presence but nothing super notable. The flavor comes in sweet in the front with a bit of bitter at the end. So I guess that makes it fairly balanced. :) I do feel that there could be a little more to the flavor, it’s a fairly "safe" beer, however, it’s not bad.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Very slight lacing. Sweet caramel aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel, but more hops than I would have imagined. Would be a nice session beer, in my opinion.

Lace, brown color. moderate hops, great malt taste. Drank with a burger. Typical amber ale. Caramel and light chocolate malt. Delicious. A

One of the best beers I have ever had. It went down so smooth and tasted excellent. The finish was money. Yum yum, Milwaukee you are still the greatest.

A nice balance of hops and malt, not my favorite Sprecher though. Something feels skunky. Drink their Imperial, it’ll blow you away
