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!

4.78/5  rDev +40.6%

On tap at the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas.

Appearance: Glorious deep red amber, clear, with bright head that managed to leave lacing on the plastic glass it was served in.

Aroma: Powerful, rich malty sweetness with a touch of hops. Perfect for the style.

Taste: As in the aroma. Lots of rich malty sweetness balanced with a touch of hops. Perhaps just a little more intensity might really lift the flavour out more, but it was very tasty. The plastic glass may have muted it a little.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, carbonated, medium. Perfect for the style.

Drinkability: This is very tasty from a plastic glass, probably even better from a real one. Would have this again.

on tap at the burger bar

A- golden orange in color, with a cream colored 1" head, left some lace on my glass.

S- crisp and clean is the best way to put it. Some sweetness hits the nostrils also.

T- Starts out with a smooth and malty, then crisp with a taste of grain, and finshes incredible with a clean malty sweetness with a touch of grain to balance it out. Some lingering aftertaste, not much though.

M- impressive medium body, some roughness from hops. enjoyable, overall smooth.

D- very very drinkable brew here. Delicious, only gets better as the glass empties. Went very well with the burger i was having. I'll be seeking this out again.

On-Tap @ The Burger Bar in Vegas.

First beer from Nevada. Not sure what the turnover on this beer is since most people were drinking the standard domestics. The beer was well presented with about a finger head. The flavor was very bread-like, common for the style, with a little bit of sweetness and only a touch of hop flavors. Rather drinkable.

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.

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.

A nice deep amber color with a light tan head. Head is pretty thick and tight, fading slowly but lacing is not evident in this clear plastic cup.

Malty sweet aroma, subtle yet pleasant. It is inviting for sure. Taste is some nice caramel malt, sweet with a touch of hops in the middle and a very nice clean finish. There is a subtle spiciness here as well, orange zest or something.

Fairly light bodied, not thin but not substantial in the mouth. It's a nice drinker though and I followed the first with another to accompany me back out onto the strip.

Like the story of this brewer and I love the location of their pub in the Flamingo!

3.53/5  rDev +3.8%

A - A pure copper color with one fingers worth of light tan head which quickly fizzes away... Loads of big bubbled, medium paced carbonation rises throughout...

S - A fairly mundane aroma... Only very minor gain, malt, caramel, and nut scents were noted.

T - Loads of malty goodness... Robust caramel flavor... Biscuit... Orange zest... A vague nuttiness... A small hint of hoppiness

M - Medium bodied with loads of prickly carbonation... Clean and crisp... Fairly smooth... Quite refreshing...

D - Quite drinkable and refreshing... Far from the top tier, or even second tier for the style, but a respectable interpretation of the style and quite enjoyable all the way around...

Had this at the airport while waiting for my layover flight.

A: An amber color, slightly darker amber, with a decent white foam head.

S: A faint hint of caramel malts. the faint smell is rather sweet. Not much happening here.

T: A malty sweet taste, mostly caramel, citrus?, and some bready. Better tasting than the smell.

M: A decent medium body beer. Does not leave much on the palate, sort of a dry sweet taste.

D: Not my most sought after beer, but easy to drink.
