Medium red oak color. Aromas and flavors of toasted dark rye bread, chestnut toffee, and saltines with a satiny, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length brown sugar sautéed fruits, radish sprouts and lettuce, cola float, and grass finish. A light and easy-drinking amber lager with a nice caramel malt character.

Amber Lager

Serve in a Mug
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.
