Mahogany color. Grassy, herbal aromas and flavors of dried herbs and fruits, pine, honey butter, and prairie grass and nettles with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, medium-long lemon pepper, roasted nuts, and coffee finish. A vivacious and snappy amber lager that will pair brilliantly with roasted and grilled meats.

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.
