Our rating: 3.0
In this week’s episode, the Six Pack Team cracked open a pack of Alamo Amber Lager by Alamo Beer Company in San Antonio, Texas. What Alamo has excelled at here is making a quality beer. On this show, a middle rating of 2.5 is considered to be the benchmark for what that style of beer should be. It’s a respectable rating, but doesn’t show spectacular achievement. With that, what we have here is a beer that exceeded the benchmark but not by much, and unfortunately that’s where most Alamo beers are going to stand because that’s what Alamo does best. They pick a style and make a great beer without too much flair. This lager hits all the right marks and beats that 2.5 hump by boasting a richer flavor than your average lager. Imagine your favorite t-shirt. It’s worn to just the right softness and fit but it’s not trying to be anything more than what it is. It’s soft, comfy, and reliable. That’s what this beer is.
