Notes/Commercial Description:
Full-bodied and proud, this amber hued lager may be an Oktoberfest-style beer, but it is available to be enjoyed year round. A robust micro-brewed lager made with imported and specialty malts, Sin City Amber balances a full-bodied malt character with imported German Hallertauer hops. 5.7% alcohol by volume!

Poured on-tap at the Sin City bar in the Venetian in Vegas. The beer was a very deep copper-red color, with a nice foamy 2" head. Aromas of sour mash and malt. The flavor was malty and crisp, and the finish reminded me more of a lager than an amber. The beer was light and smooth in the mouth, and very pleasant to drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Half finger head on a golden copper body. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, breads and sweet syrup. Flavor is way too sweet for me with caramel malts, syrup and candy sugar. Light body especially for the style with moderate carbonation. Too sweet, under hopped. Just it very good but also no off putting flavors.

Served on tap at Sin City Brewing (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours a crystal clear dark ruby red in color with some light visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a thick ring at the edges of the glass with a thin film over the majority of the surface and a thicker patch towards the center. Significant lacing is observed.

S: The smell is dominated by the toffee sweetness of the toasted malts. There is a light earthy hop presence as well.

T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by the rich toffee and caramel malt sweetness with just a hint of earthy hops present.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: An enjoyable beer that was very easy to drink. This beer is quite sessionable and I would certainly get it again if I was at Sin City Brewing in Las Vegas. There is enough complexity to the flavor and smell to make this one enjoyable.

Had on tap at BLT burger in Vegas at the Mirage.

A - Pours amber to red with a thin creme color foam. Some carbonation, and slight lacing.

S - Scents of caramel, toffee, and fresh malt are present. This is clearly a Marzen.

T - Smells carried over to the taste. Has all the flavors of a traditional Marzen. Caramel flavor, and malt with some fine grains.

M - Very enjoyable. Smooth, light bodied, and a perfect beer to hang out at the bar drinking. Was pleasantly surprised that this was so enjoyable.
