Poured all of the 12oz. into my Shiner tumbler glass. I've been kinda looking to try the other brews from Cape ann for some time, i've only had the fisherman ale last summer and found it to be a great kolsch. Oh well on to their Amber Lager. Oh on a side note bought this in January and as the seasonal had the pumpkin stout here's hoping the flavors have held up since its been around for 5 or so months I'm guessing. Wish the company would tell what seasonal was in it, not just a generic title called seasonal brew. I would of never brought this variety pack home.
A: Pours a well carbonated Amber orange color with a white big soapy bubbled head here. Also transparent. Don't know why but was expecting a more bold red lager on this one, but appearence isn't why we came to he table here.
S: Kinda boring has a grain, German mustiness with a tart wheat kinda smell going on. Kinda smells like a munich helles here, not much caramel or sweetness going on. No hops at all must be from the age on this one.
T: Hum, um well, lets take another sip here, Actually kinda complex. First your hit with smooth cleanness with a quick hop bite. Then it transfer to a sweet Irish Red kinda flavor which I find has toasted malts with a sweet licorice notes with in. Then your palate gets hit with an ample amount of earthy hop character in the back end. I would rename it an Irish Red Lager here.
M: I'm leaning towards the lighter side of medium here, with a drying sensation throughout.
D: Kinda low for me was hoping for more of a traditional American amber here but was giving a sorta mishmash of styles, but overall the beer did its job with easy. A nice safe lager here which gives you more the the big guys, but not more than anything you could ever remember.
I'm hoping that time has not been kind to this beer at all cause I kinda had high hopes for this one, but if I come across a fresh bottle will definitely give it another far shot.
