Frankenmuth’s Amber Ale is brewed with a combination of 6-row pale malts, Munich, Cara-60, and Cara-Pils malts. Again, a combination of Cluster and Perle hops are used to give this beer its hoppy flavor and fruity characteristics. A German Lager yeast strain is used giving the beer its estery characteristics.
Look for a mild caramel malt aroma and a mild floral hop nose up front. Note good head retention in this copper, clear, medium-bodied beer. Frankenmuth’s Amber has a caramel malt flavor up front and a bitter hop finish. Overall, another excellent, very well-balanced, clean beer from Frankenmuth.

AMERICAN BREWER - Reuters reports that the Australian sex industry is cleaning up its act and seeks a ban on the export of bulls’ penises to Asia, where they are prized as an aphrodisiac. One Australian meat company alone, Tenor PTA, has flown 8,000 frozen bull pee pees to China. Typically, the penises are boiled for soup or ground into a fine penis erectus powder. So now you’re wondering, "just what the "H" "E" double hockey sticks all this has to do with beer. Well... to make full use of the Torro’s manlihood, the industry has been converting the scrotum sac into insulators for slipping over the base of cold beer cans. "We’ve dried about 1000 scrotums for beer cans," said Tenarra’s Fred MacDonald, "and they make great Christmas presents. They’re quite nice to touch." Do you suppose Fred knew the tape recorder was on when he said that?
