Bright copper color. Inviting aromas and flavors of dark toast with nutella, banana nut muffin, swedish rye cracker with lemon-herb butter, and grassy earth with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, long finish revealing notes of spiced nuts and cocoa-dusted dried fruits finish. A very dry and nutty lager that is a natural pairing for roasts.

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.
