COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Community Beer Company’s deference to classic, old world European lagers manifests as our year round offering Community Lager. A true lager, this beer takes about five to six weeks to make from the day we mill the malt to finished, sparkling clear beer. This all malt, Vienna-style lager begins with our own crystal clear water – run through our state of the art filtration system – which is treated to mimic the waters of Bavaria, before being mashed with the finest malts from one of the oldest German maltsters. Using traditional techniques, we craft this lager’s wort in our four vessel brewhouse, transferring it to our fermenters to settle in for the long haul that all true lagers must undergo. Our European lager strain ferments very cold and slow, leaving a crisp, clean, highly quaffable, light copper colored beer. While most of our beers are unfiltered, we feel it is vitally important to filter this delicate beer, allowing the drinker to appreciate the clean, subtle complexities of a truly world-class lager.

I had low expectations and will now be purchasing a six pack for the summer. very much enjoyed this brew - malt, bread and a freshness for lack of better word in aroma. taste was crisp, malty and PERFECT amount of bitter hops to balance - probably what a pale ale was before everyone went hop crazy. bottle.

Crisp amber with an off white head. Nose is rich malts, dough, bread, sweet, and caramel. Smooth palate, caramel, faint roast, clean, bitter, and an easy finish.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Tap at the brewery - clear straw color - aroma of toasty and bready malts, a bit Munich richness, lightly grassy hops - flavor is mostly clean, round carbonation in the mouth - fairly rich malts, followed by toasty notes, tempered by a peppery and grass hop bite on the end - the finish is slightly unclean, but otherwise a pretty solid offering.

Bottle thanks to Bill!   Somewhat of a weak soy sauce flavor profile.   Its grainy, mealy, and very dusty with a stale cupboard background.   Its like old crackers, meat, and bread all in one, with some old soy sauce.   Nope, this one is not working at all.

Tap at Zio Carlo. Pours a very clear dark orange color with a very frothy beige head. Aroma is malty sweet, grainy, biscuity, sugar and toast. Flavor is smooth, malty, grains, light sweetness with a gentle bitterness. This is very tasty. Jamie/Eric hasn't lost his touch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
