Amber color. Aromas and flavors of honeyed nuts and peaches and fruit cake and salad with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, appealing, relaxed nougat, apple sauce and brandy, and pepper finish. A fruity and somewhat boozy, malt liquor like amber lager.

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.
