Sprecher Special Amber Vienna Style Lager

The Sprecher Brewing Company is in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was founded in 1985 by a former brewing supervisor for Pabst Brewing.

This 5.0% ABV beer pours orange and amber in color, seemingly clear with the appearance of haziness.  There is a short head of off-white foam.  The aroma is malty, caramel sweet, a bit of sweet potato.  The taste is richly malty, caramel, some roasted notes, a touch of sweet potato, but a good dose of bitterness on the finish to prevent it being overly sweet.  A good amber lager.
