Third Shift Amber Lager

This 5.3% ABV amber lager is from Band of Brewers Third Shift. (This is actually a MillerCoors brand.) It won a gold medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup.

The beer pours a bright amber in color. It is well carbonated and has a short, thin white head. The aroma is sweet, light caramel, light roasted malt, a touch of spice and a bright note. The taste is light roasted malt, light caramel, some bitterness, and an unpleasant burnt toast/wet cardboard note. It has a nice tingling carbonation. This is mediocre verging on unpleasant. I don't see myself ever having another one.
