Sam's Downers Grove

Sprecher's Special Amber poured a crystal clear light caramel. Great big carbonation bubbles rise rapidly to the loose off white head that formed on the pour. The head quickly fell to a thin cap. The head is a little of a disappointment but the body looks great.

The smell is very similiar to Great Lakes Eliot Ness. Lightly toasted malt with a mixture of raw grain. Caramel and toffee scents as well. Very malty. Very mild hop spiciness that's barely detectable.

Flavor is very much like the aroma. Toasted grains with a nice deep maltiness. Caramel and toffee overtones. Finishes crisp with a mild hop spiciness.

Medium body with prickly carbonation that makes this beer crisp. Mild hop bitterness after the swallow.

This is an easy drinker. Refreshing and crisp help this beer go down easy.

Special Amber is a good quality session brew. Very good flavor and a lower abv let this beer shine in a session situation. I will definately pick this up again, soon.
