3.5/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

06/28/05- Purchased at Osco Drugs in Billings, MT.

Presentation- 12oz dated bottle of best by 07/05 nothced on the label. Poured into my Anchor X-mas pint glass.

Appearance- Light amber colored pour with a nice 1/4 inch head and very light lacing.

Smell- Smells that of an amber. A bit darker than a normal ale and nice malt and light hop scent.

Taste- Lightly malty. Very light for an amber ale. Maybe some toasted malt in the flavor. Tastes like a stronger pils from the hops they use.

Mouthfeel- Average carbonation, slightly fuller mouthfeel. Leaves mouth a tad dry.

Drinkability- Pretty crisp and smooth brew. Kinda light tasting for and amber though. But, otherwise a pretty decent brew.

I find it interesting that they call this beer Amber, and the style listed here is Marzen/Oktoberfest, which I think is correct. I have tried this beer several times, as a friend just loves it. I don't. I think it is an average Marzen. Color a bit off to be called an amber and the head is just not impressive, but not too many Marzen beers have a good head. There is a strange after flavor I cannot identify, maybe that is why I don't care for it, don't know what it tastes like.

Bayern Amber is not amber, it is however a dirty brownish cloudy yellow, no amber to be seen, I guess it fits though for a Marzen, so why call it amber? ...gets a thin white fluffy head that poofs away and leaves some spotty lace with a ring. Smell is faint sweet musty malts and very light and dull citrus notes. Taste is mild mellow frothy malts, lightly sweet and moderately crisp, light and easy, nothing stands out, kinda bland and boring. Feel is thin and favors a lighter medium body, one thing going for it is that its not watery. At least thats something. Very average drinker all around.

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty. A lighter bodied amber. Malts are prevalent and slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Smooth flavor. Clean taste. Nice drinkable amber. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

This is another quality beer form Bayern. The light amber color is inviting. The flavor and body profile is very similar to the Trout slayer, except the amber has a slight roasted malt character to it.

Crisp, hoppy, and refreshing. Well balanced with a sweet malt enhanced by the hop bite. A fest beer for year round drinking.
