The flavor and aroma of the beer were ok but they were hard to detect, like when a drink is watered down. Very muted aftertaste. While not as important as the beer itself, I found the design of the label to be similarly lackluster. Overall, it felt like a half-hearted attempt. Less like a beer and more like a beer flavored beverage.

L: pours brilliant copper amber to light brown under a cream colored to light tan foam collar with moderate retention.

S: light malts, some toast and very faint green apple.

T: Rich malty sweet with light caramel. The malt is medium and the hop bitterness is low. There is some anise and spice from the malt and faint apple.

F: medium to a little above, and the carbonation is medium.

O: altogether too sweet. There is some hop bitterness but no where near enough to balance the malt.

Just for old time's sake, I am reviewing this one from memory because I want to get my beer karma up to 300. This was special since it was hard for us to get for distribution and legal age reasons. But this tasted good compared to slamming warm quarts of Blatz in the treehouse.

Aroma, muted, is a mix of toasted malt, and solvents. Flavor has the toasted malt come out and become the best part of this beer. Body is a little off, bit thin, slightly over carbonated. Still, not a bad brew.

Trying the Amber Lager from a mixed 12. It poured a clear amber with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of malt. The taste was evenly balanced and was easy to drink. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with poor carbonation. Overall it's a good beer but more carbonation and head would be nice.

Amber beer pours amber color. Dark amber. Little bit of sweetness, oktoberfest like toffee and nutty notes.

Everything super mild, I guess its well done. Not my thing, its a sweet amber lager. I mean, I might be a sweet amber lover, but lager, that just doesn't do it for me. Middle of the road average lager with some color.
