Notes: Shipping out of Boston celebrated the rich and storied manufacturing history of New England. We built this beer with local ingredients inspired by the factories that were once world suppliers. It is a malty, sweet, and lightly hoppy amber lager that pays homage to the past, while manufacturing a bold future.

Crystal clear, deep amber color. Impressive head which recedes in a rocky fashion. It does settle completely to a thin layer of bubbles. Some streaks for lace, less than I expected.

Light caramel to the otherwise earthy malt nose. Some booziness to the smell.

The malt is rich throughout the tasting as is the body. The carbonation leans to the effervescent. The hop comes in as a spice, certainly enough to give this a more bitter presence than many Ambers. This leads to a balanced finish which lingers.

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left lots of small specks of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts are present in the nose along with notes of dark fruits.
T: Like the smell, the taste is sweet and has flavors of toasted malts with notes of dark fruit and hints of caramel malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied, very clean, and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: While this lager was very malty and rather sweet, I found it to be very drinkable.

Serving type: can

From a 12 fl. oz can. Sampled on May 3, 2020.

Attractive looking amber brown with golden hues in the light and a modest cream colored head.

Big aroma of caramel and toffee malts with a lower profile earthy or floral sensation.

Light to medium body.

The taste is sweet and malty with a good caramel, toffee, and Graham cracker flavor. Just a wisp of floral hops playing up on the backside.

This one pours a golden amber brown color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like toasted malt, caramel, and floral hops.

This is fairly simple, but tasty enough anyway. It’s mainly built on crisp bready and toasty malt. There’s a small hint of hop character, and not much sweetness - maybe just a bit of caramel.

This is slightly creamy, with a nice crispness to it. It’s pretty drinkable.

This is a little simplistic, but still worth a try.

16 oz. canned 03 12 20

Amber orange color with a frothy dissipating white foam head. Fruity floral earthy nose, some thick caramel and toasty malts too. Tastes extremely toasty with caramel, light toffee, toasted dark bread, amber honey, some mild apricot, citrus marmalade, grapefruit, finishing crisp and dry with flowery earthy herbal pine. Feels smooth and crispy, medium bodied with slick moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice amber lager.

Clear copper/light amber in color--lighter than expected.

Smells of toast, honey, hay, and spices.

Tastes like medium-browned toast with honey, toffee, roasted nuts, hay, and vague fall spice. Maybe a touch of ginger. Lightly sweet but crisp and clean. Medium-light, well carbonated feel and slightly sticky with residual sugar.

A really tasty amber lager!

L: deep red/amber with a thick, slow dissolving reddish-tan head.
S: lightly floral and rustic country farm bread
T: Rich, slightly sweet toasted malt flavors with enough hops to keep everything in balance
F: moderate carbonation gives it a full feel at the start and a refreshing, satisfying dryness at the end of the swallow
O: a very good amber lager. Not as much of an edge as their pilsners and more filling.
Rich, malty, slightly sweet, well balanced. A very good beer at a very good price.

12oz Can from Harvest Market.
The can says amber lager so I guess its this listing not the Kellerbier listing.
Deep amber color with a decent sized off white head. Bready crackery faint cereal graininess. Light floral and earth to counter. Light sweet and toast. Quite easy to throw back and have some nice flavor too.

Canned on 3/2/20

Pours a slightly hazed burnished orange body capped with a half finger of creamy, off-white head which fades quickly to a spotty cap, thin though frothy collar, and a quickly vanishing splotching of lacing around the glass.

Aroma presents freshly toasted brown bread, bold and crisp, in tandem with a deft caramel malt semi-sweetness; accents of floral bubble gum and candied orange zest add further depth to the overall bouquet as it harmonizes steadily.

Taste offers a familiar caramel malt and bread crust combination, now touched by grassy hops for a vaguely herbal appeal before wisps of orange peel and a rounded, robust malt character highlight a satisfying finish; a metallic tone is present, though fleeting and incredibly minor.

Mouthfeel shows a stiff lighter body with a moderate-high carbonation becoming spritzy as it peaks along the mid-palate; evens out nicely on the back end, refining a crisp, light, and palatable snap on the finish.

A red lager of focus and casual finesse; an elevated Yuengling quietly rounded with caramel malt complexity and a nuanced balance of sweetness atop dry hoppy accents. This shines with clean drinkability and the building savory, malty intrigue I seek out in the style.
