Amber lagers are seriously underrated in Australia. They have more flavour than a pale lager, a lighter body than a red ale, and are more versatile than an intense dark beer.
For this reason, Burnt Amber is a welcome guest. It’s also aptly named; hold it up to the light and see the gorgeous red sparkle through the glass. This European dark lager marries together malty notes – swishes of chocolate and roast and treacle and sweet biscuit – with a smooth fizz that gives it an enthusiastic feel in the mouth. When you reach your last sip, a cola bitterness and dry finish have you wondering how long you should wait until you have another. The answer is usually: not long.
