Review: Third Shift Amber Lager

Band of Brewers (part of MillerCoors) offers this new, limited-release lager, now available in select markets (Dayton, San Francisco, Reno, Sacramento, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Dallas).

It’s a traditional amber color and a big, malty lager — one of the maltiest brews I’ve had in a long time, sweet and sticky with a nose that recalls a touch of cider vinegar. The hops are quiet in this brew — if you’re looking for a bitterness bomb, try elsewhere. The finish is mouth-coating and fairly simple. Sweet, orange-inflected, and almost worthy of the dessert course.
