Light pale medium brilliant deep color. Rich, fruity aromas and flavors of caramelized tropical fruit, lemon bars, and white nut fudge with a glycerous, soft, effervescent, fruity sweet medium body and an even, captivating, breezy watercress, peach, honeyed jalapeno cornbread, and pine finish. A fruity and round amber lager that is sure to please.

Amber lagers are amber to copper hued in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6%. Caramel malt flavors are typical and hopping levels vary considerably from one brewery to the next. Though based on the Vienna lager style, these beers are often hoppier. Amber lagers are a vaguely defined style favored by US brewers. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Great Lakes Elliot Ness Lager, Stevens Point Classic Amber and Boston Beer Co.'s Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
