This one is solid. Solid. I really don't see that many Amber Lagers out there, and the ones i do see are usually lackluster.

This one has a little hop to it, is very clean, lightly malty, and very very drinkable. It's not exciting, but it's not supposed to be. It's a great step up from a pale macro lagers and probably the best example of this style i've yet had. That may be damning with faint praise, as i mentioned i haven't seen many of these in stores around here, but nevertheless; it's enjoyable.

3.5/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Pours a light brown or dirty copper color with a frothy head that has good retention. Some lace is left behind on the glass and the brew exhibits decent clarity.

SMELL: Bready, hoppy, soft caramel, malty. As it warms the malts come out more with more toffee, brown sugar and caramel.

TASTE: Firm malt notes with plenty of caramel and toffee, Bitterness is mild and the hop character is leafy, herbal and maybe a slight lemony citrus. Kind of has a noble thing going on. Agreeable amber lager that reminds me alot of an English pale ale for some reason, but this is far more bready.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a fuzzy mouthfeel from a high level of carbonation. Finishes with a bit of malt and bitterness rinsing the palate.

OVERALL: A good American Red Lager here from Lakefront that would not be out of place in my fridge. Malty, bready lager beer that drinks easy and has pretty solid flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at our hotel in Milwaukee.

The beer is dark copper with a mild haze and sports a half inch off off-white head. The aroma bring caramel malt, bread, grain, a hint of sweetness and mild alcohol. Perhaps a touch of citrus in the flavor with a light bitterness in the finish. Pretty drinkable, though the beer itself is rather bland and uneventful. Ok...
