BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hamburger Mary's / Andersonville Brewing
Illinois, United States
hamburgermarys.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
The beer that started it all... Gangster was our first ever brew - way back in 2009 - and continues to be one of our most popular! It is a cross between a classic Pale Ale in bitterness and an American Amber Ale in color and body. Gangster is brewed with a blend of Vienna, Munich and caramel malts, and generously hopped with Centennial, Chinook and Willamette hop varieties.

Sampled today at the Rec Room bar, review from notes.

Amber gold color, no head, just a thin circle of lace around the edge, barely there to begin with. The liquid had a thin body when swirled, and it didn't do much but create a wisp across the surface. It had the typical homebrew smell, grainy and sweet, sort of unmelded together. Thin bodied, but with some decent hop bitterness and flavor. Fairly indistinct flavor. Light and easy enough to drink, but needs more body and malt flavor to really improve.
