Beer Review: Crown Valley Brewing - Antique Amber Lager

I am pretty sure today's submission is the first craft brew that I have had from the state of Missouri.

Our Antique Amber is a medium bodies American lager brewed with the finest noble hops and German Malt.

5.5% Alc. by Volume

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear golden brown with a thin to medium off white head that settles right over the beer.

Aroma: Crisp malt with some fruitiness and noble hops.

Flavor: Up front with caramel sweetness and maybe a little corn. A tinge of fruitiness from the yeast and a nice mellow noble hop flavor. Ends a little sweet but very crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to medium carbonation.

Overall: A very crisp and refreshing lager. The caramel malt plays perfectly with the yeast fruitiness. Reminds me somewhat of a lighter Vienna lager without as much as a malty presence.
