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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear reddish amber color, with a medium sized white head. The aroma is slightly nutty with some sweet maple. This is a very average beer.
