COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hardtail Lager is an Amber American Lager with a moderate caramel sweetness coming from the generous use of munich and caramel malts, and balanced with moderate use of European noble hops for flavor and bitterness. Hardtail is fermented cold and lagered for 30 day thus providing the active hardtail consumer a crisp full body drinkable beer, not too heavy, not too light, just right. I’ll have another.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Sprecher’s brewery gift shop in Glendale, WI. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a decent size initial white head that fades into a small soapy ring. Slight aroma of grain, caramel, and toffee. Medium to light palate, about the right carbonation. Taste is caramel, toffee, and kind of dusty/earthy - not altogether pleasant.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Clear amber with a quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and malt. Hopless taste of caramel and malt, not much going on here. A touch dry and bland with a mild peppery finish.

OD40oz (768) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours amber with almost no head. Pretty mediocre aroma and taste. About what I’d expect out of a beer named after a Harley, lame.

scooterbub (794) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 20, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice clear amber with a nice one inch beige head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, caramel, dust, fruit, hops, and some resin. Similar aroma. Decent body. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. The only real downside is the price.
