COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After years of commemorating our anniversary with deliciously wild and weird ales, we decided to mix it up a bit and create our first Anniversary Lager. SEVENTEEN is a celebration and case study of the aromas and flavors of German hops. And knowing our fetish for those beautiful green cones, you can be confident that the contents of this bottle are excessively hopped for your olfactory pleasure. Many thanks to all and we hope you enjoy our lupulin dissertation. Peace to all and follow your dreams! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, imported German hops, and German yeast.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick patch of soapy head while the liquid appeared as a dark black coffee. My nose detects a minor touch of roasted down malt and only the faintest scent of grassy hops, but that was about it. The flavor had more personality than the initial aroma lead me to believe and that was due to the same roasted profile of malts. There is also a bitter bite of hops in the finish, but overall I thought this was another average black lager.

Very dark brown with a medium, off-white head. Malty with hoppy notes. Malt, hops and caramel. Full body with a long, balanced (dry) finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2011
This brew is perfect I tell ya. Good head retention and aroma. Only medium full with superb carbonation. I thought it would be more rich and concentrated. Perfect balance with a nice hop presence and roast component. Not sweet at all. This is so f’ing good. Trump or no Trump, this brew is perfect in every way. I am amazed.

Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar well over a year ago ($7.89). Pours a dark brown-black with two fingers of frothy light brown foam with good retention. Mild aroma of roasted malts with notes of smoke and dark bread with hints of cafe mocha and dark fruit. Flavor of dark roasted malts, creamy chocolate, burnt toast, and dark fruit. Lingering bitterness at the end which appears to be derived more from dark roasted malts than hops. Really, I do not find the supposed hops here that the commercial description would indicate, but still good and greater than the sum of its parts. (326, 620)

Dark colored pour with a bit of hops in the nose and roasted malts. Taste is smooth and easy to drink. Pretty good stand out beer for what it is; and frankly something finally redeeming from Avery’s Anniversary beers. One that doesnt suck is a rarity at this point.

bottle - Dunkler Bock, RB? Really? Huh. I think schwarzbier is a much better fit, but okay. The category isn’t really that important for this unusual brew. It pours black with a lasting tan head that laces well. The aroma is of roast malt with notes of pine and citrus hops. The flavor includes well hopped bitterness and full bodied roast malt with roast and hop tastes lingering in the finish. Well done!

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2011
opaque mahogany with a dense tan head; full body with medium-high carbonation.

aroma: sweet dark malt, fruity alcohol esters, leafy hops, and hints of smoke and molasses.

taste: leafy hops and dark coffee-ish malt; with notes of cola, molasses, and burnt fruit cake.

i would prefer more caramel and chocolate malts, to give a fuller, rounder malt character.

Very hops aromatic smell and taste which otherwise mainly is comprised of roasted malt, but there are also tints of dark chocolate. A nice beer!
