COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the maltforward fest biers of Bavaria. Extensive malt aroma and taste trials over the last two years led us in crafting this recipe, a subtly-hopped amber lager that walks the line between dry and full-bodied, not too sweet but definitely not lacking in malty goodness. Lagered on our in-house toasted oak to round out this brew’s flavor profile.

[2/24/15] Draught at Base Camp Brewing in Portland. Clear copper-amber with a beige head. Aroma of graininess, caramel, a bit of toast and a corny note. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of caramel, toast, and a bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied.

It’s not typically my favorite style, or my favorite brewery but I do like this beer. I’ve had it both on tap and in one of their crazy bottles now. It has a good bitterness to it which I enjoy, mixed with that crisp lager flavor and texture and good caramel backbone. Refreshing but with some depth.

This amber hued beer is malt forward, toast and biscuits, with just a touch if hops. Not a ton going on but smooth enough I suppose."

On tap at Base Camp, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very feint with not a whole lot detectable. Flavour is also quite subtle, with sweet malts and herbal notes. Pretty weak beer with not a whole lot going on here. Decent.

At base camp with Steven. Pours murky toilet water brown. Aroma is smooth grainy, sweet Vienna malt. Taste is barley backbone, light earthy hops, malty woody.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy amber with a big cream-colored head and good lacing. Grainy, cereal, bready, grass, caramel, and raw wheaty aroma. Taste is fresh bread, rye, lightly grassy, cookie malty, and cracker with a lightly hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent stuff.

650ml bottle-shaped aluminum can pours copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and caramel. Taste is a caramel and grainy malt sweetness with an earthy bitterness. An interesting dark lager that I found enjoyable and recommend to others.
