BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Old Black Bear Brewing Company
Alabama, United States | website

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A German Dunkel inspired American Amber Lager with a signature hop aroma. This lager combines mostly Munich malt with the addition of gently balanced caramelized malts giving it a rich copper color as well as a bit more malt backbone and overall character than the typical amber lager. The complex combination of noble hops enables our lager to be paired with a wide variety of food items, and its clean lager finish creates a beer that will really hit the spot on those hot summer afternoons.

Appearance - Listed as an Amber Lager, but is surprisingly dark for this style. Very little foam.
Smell - Malty with a hint of coffee.
Taste - Quite possibly the best tasting beer I've had. Caramel and coffee, quite malty with a bit of hops.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with a nice malty aftertaste.
Overall - I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I had quite a few craft beers while in Alabama and this one definitely stood out.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark ruby black color with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. The taste is very similar to a nut brown ale.
