COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the Bohemian Tradition, this deep golden lager exhibits a bold yet balanced hop profile due to the use of premium Czech Saaz hops. We us the finest Moravian two row barley to give Detroit Lager its signature crisp, yet surprisingly full body. Our deliberate fermentation process and rigorous quality control ensure the freshest, most authentic pilsner style lager possible. 4.6 – 4.8% ABV

Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Very nice. Quite hoppy, very fresh, light, refreshing, full flavored.

Tap: golden body, light chill haze with a thin layer of white foam that transgresses to a measly skin quickly. Aroma is mild; notes of spicy Saaz hops, grass, & faintly sweet pilsner malt. Mild bread & honey. Taste is crisp & clean, though somewhat lacking. Notes of bread, pilsner malt, grass & spicy leaves from the Saaz, & the lightest tough of lemon zest in the finish. Some faint metallic notes here & there with a yeasty coating finish. Decent lager, overall.

On tap DTW. Clear gold. Faint aroma of light pils malts. Flavor matches with balanced hop bitterness, very very faintly floral. Clean, but I wanted more hops.

Pours a gold yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, very light floral hops, and not a lot else. Flavor is surprisingly strong, which I was not expecting from the aroma. Overall pretty decent.

It is okay. Surely in the Czech camp. Not too much diacetyl. Reminiscent of Czech lagers but not as good.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12oz bottle from The Beer Depot in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet and grainy with a light, crisp grassy hopping. Flavor is similar. Sweeter, grainy pale malts with a light, fruity grass. This does finish very dry with a light, grassy bitterness along with a touch of sweetness and earth before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a clean, easy drinking lager. Decent grassy dryness and a somewhat sweeter, grainy malt. This wasn’t a bad pale lager.

Bottle. I am not a big lager fan, but this was pretty refreshing on hot day. Crisp with only very minor skunky tones. Clean finish, carbonation is moderate. I would have again when looking for this style.

Sample at GABF on 9-18-2010. Comes a light gold with a nich fluffy white head. Aroma of malt, hops and some citrus. Tastes somewhat sweet with some hop bitterness. Pretty good lager.
