Brilliant color. Earthy aromas and flavors of roasted nut shells and root vegetables, cacao mulch and straw, and mustard greens with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, brisk grilled pumpernickel and pepper finish. A sturdy quaffer.

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.
