    One of the best amber beers out there; light, smooth and with a slight caramel taste and only 4.5 ABV it is a perfect beer for a hot New Orleans afternoon on the porch.

    My workmates and I loved this great Louisiana beer made even better by the superb service of Drizly!


Strictly speaking, there are multiple kinds of amber beers, but what we'll talk about today is amber lagers. These lagers are so popular they're a widely distributed, sessionable craft beer style that showcases a balance between malt and hops.
Amber lagers are medium-bodied beers with a toasty or sweet malt character (think caramel). Hop bitterness can range from very low to medium-high, depending on the brewer, but all in all they tend to be very balanced and drinkable.
These beers tend to be on the lower side of the ABV (alcohol by volume) spectrum, landing somewhere in the 4.5% to 5.5% range, landing them in the "session beer" category.
