Notes: Elegant and balanced. Ramstein Amber Lager has a rich malty aroma, a smooth toasty palate, and a fresh noble hop character. The richness and spiciness of our Amber Lager makes it a delicious accompaniment to a variety of foods. Ramstein Northern Hills Amber Lager is a great beer for any festive occasion.

On-tap @ The River of Beer in Bloomingdale, NJ.

Deep amber with great clarity and a small white head that has poor retention. Mild caramel and toasted malt aroma. Earthy hops round things out. Flavor is subdued sweet malt and is pretty mild. Clean but could have finished drier. Medium-light bodied.

Poured from the bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Is this ever a real good looker. Copper bright red body color, with excellent clarity and touches of tangerine orange edges. Fleeting two finger khaki colored head, with no lacing and a bit of creamy collar. Body color on this just sings.

Sticky and pasty yeast notes, with a touch of toasty and bready sweet caramel on the aroma. A good surprising banana like ester as well with this creamy quality coming out on the nose as well. Real nice.

Palate just brings the solid goods. Light bodied and extremely clean finish. Touches of caramel and toast in the mid palate, with an almost crispy light toffee quality. A good amount of banana sweetness in a lighter doppelbock like quality also comes out nicely. Some touches of cream and milky sweetness as well, and love the toasty brown bread like finish.

This is a real impressive amber lager, but I just wish the banana quality wasn't so noticeable.

I am big Boston Lager fan. I have now grown more into finding Vienna Lagers. I recently had Devils Backbone Bienna Lager and fell in love. This beer resembles the simplicity of a tasteful lager and delicious brew. With low to no hops, it has a caramel look and biscuit taste!

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet malts are present in the nose. There is also an unusual aroma that I can't quite put a finger on.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is rather malty and has some sweetness. The unusual aroma in the smell is also present in the taste.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is nice and malty but the unusual smell and taste is somewhat detracting.

Ramstein Amber Lager pours a crystal clear golden amber/brown color with a moderate/small light beige head with okay retention. Leaves minimal lacing. Smell is light and consists of a bit of wheat/bready malt and floral hops.

Taste starts with bread and caramel malt, then wheat and floral hops. Has a bready, slightly sweet, floral aftertaste that lingers nicely. Mouthfeel is a touch on the light side with above average carbonation for an amber lager, these characteristics go well with the flavors in the beer, making a tasty, light, drinkable beer.
