Hoppy Red Lager
What to do when you have a glut of German Tettnang and US Tettnang hops? You brew up a batch of the ol’ Two Tettnangers in a Microbrew. Hoppy red lager featuring the noble hop Tettnang, which is a spicy and floral hop used in many German pilsners and other German styles. The base beer starts with Pilsner and Munich malts, the reddish color and rich caramel and toasty flavor comes from the additions of caramel amber and victory malts. Tettnang was employed three times during the boil and once post fermentation. The New Zealand variety Nelson Sauvin was also used in the dryhop to boost hop aroma and add fruity notes.

On tap in a sampler glass. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops and cereal like malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Draft. Light amber body with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, toasted grain, bread, melon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Initial sweetness nicely balanced with grapefruit rind bitterness, citrus acidity. Clean malts. Enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (13583) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Tap sample at IBGWF 2013. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer that would go well with spicy food.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Hoppy lager that does not resemble a lager. Slight sweetness with tangerine and orange. Maybe apricot. Well balanced. Very good.

Draft to taster at AtG. Looks solid; a transparent amberish-copper with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; nicely hopped with a sweet, light backbone that goes down nicely. Good on the palate. Good beer.

ContemplateBeer (2006) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Aroma of strong lemon/herbal hops, moderate bready malts and some nuts. Appearance is copper/red with a sticky bone head. Hops are at the fore, with pumpernickel bread in tow; the finish is herbal and bitter. This beer is medium bodied and sticky with lively carbonation. Very well done.
