COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The crisp, smooth Classic Lager is judged to be excellent with food, or by itself. It has a distinct malty smoothness and light amber color. The Classic Lager is the result of superior quality ingredients and award winning hand-crafted attention to excellence. It is expertly “double-hopped”with fresh hops grown locally in and around Fredericksburg and then cold conditioned for six weeks.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a clear yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was somewhat sour, tangy and had a sour mash old style lager presence. The flavor was tangy and tart with moderate sour mash and faint fruity hops. Medium length tart and tangy sour mash and fruity hop finish. Medium body. Pretty tasty for what it is.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draught @ Capital Ale House: This one pours a clear golden color. There was a small white head on it that did not linger nor leave any lacing. Mild but decent nose. Some malts, touch sweet, corn, maybe some floral hops. The taste isn’t bad. Better than most beers of this ilk. Clean, crisp taste. Easy to drink.

pushkinwow (2015) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2011
Bomber from 2010. Pours a cloudy orange, no head but white lacing. Smells or orange, bubblegum, and maybe off hops. Very thin, tastes like a sweet lager, citrus throughout, but not offensive. Much better then I thought it would be but lager’s just aren’t my thing.

Velkyal (296) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Pours a rich golden with a thin white head which vanishes quickly. The aroma was mainly spicy, with hints of grass and hay, with a graininess lingering in the background. Tastes of bread and some biscuit, cut through with a crisp clean bitterness. Quite nice.

Clear light amber pour. Fizzy white head and spotty lace. Nicely carbonated . Corny aroma. Grains, grassy hops, and honey. Crisp finish. Overall very solid especially for a style I’m not too fond of.
