      Amber indeed, high carbonation, big head. Very clean aroma. Thick, but not sweet. Slight bitterness shows up late. Pretty gassy.

      Amber, moderate carbonation, good head. Hint of caramel aroma. Some caramel flavor and fairly bitter...but not nearly as hoppy as the Pilsner.

      Deep red-brown, moderate carbonation, low head. No aroma. Good body, smooth, a little roasty, a little bitter. Pretty dry, and drying at the end.
