Product description

This is our Ol’ Faithful. No, it’s not a geothermal phenomenon. It’s the beer everybody, including professional beer judges, just seems to dig. Maybe they like how it’s smooth, medium-bodied, and semi-sweet, while not too heavy or bitter. Maybe it’s the amber color, or the blend of four imported malts balanced by two Germanic hops, or the fact that it takes five weeks to get right. Or maybe it’s all the above.

FAQs

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.
