American Amber / Red Lager |  5.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A German Dunkel inspired American Amber Lager with a signature hop aroma. This lager combines mostly Munich malt with the addition of gently balanced caramelized malts giving it a rich copper color as well as a bit more malt backbone and overall character than the typical amber lager. The complex combination of noble hops enables our lager to be paired with a wide variety of food items, and its clean lager finish creates a beer that will really hit the spot on those hot summer afternoons.

look: 2.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Listed as an Amber Lager, but is surprisingly dark for this style. Very little foam.
Smell - Malty with a hint of coffee.
Taste - Quite possibly the best tasting beer I've had. Caramel and coffee, quite malty with a bit of hops.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with a nice malty aftertaste.
Overall - I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I had quite a few craft beers while in Alabama and this one definitely stood out.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a beautiful deep brown/amber color with an unimpressive head. Virtually nonexistent. No lacing. Smells like malted barley and hops. Very sweet aroma. I'm sensing some raw pumpkin in there as well. Tastes like spiced pumpkin with a semi-dry hopped aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, but finishes crisp and over carbonated. Unimpressive body. Kind of flat. Overall, it's a subpar brew. The color is fantastic but everything else was mediocre. Taste and nose were flat and the body was weak. Try it out for curiosity sake, but don't buy a 6er
