COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 100% Dark Munich Malt, Red Tape Lager has a full malty flavor typical of Bavarian dark lagers. Additions of Glacier hops add a subtle, sweet hop aroma more typical of American beer. These characteristics combine to create a well balanced and delicious lager. OG 13 Plato

Appearance: Thin, lacy head, amber in color. Smell: toasted malt, pine like citrus hops. Taste: toasted malt, with a smooth citrus hop kick. Mouthfeel: light body, sweet with a touch of bitterness. Overall: This is my favorite Jack Abbey’s brew. It might not be most complex beer out there, but its a damn good one. It has all the malty notes I like in a amber ale and just enough bitterness to balance it out. When you find it, grab it!

From the 25 oz. bottle with a date of June 2012 stamped on the label. It pours medium amber with copper and reddish tones and a huge head. The aroma is sweet malts up front with yeast and cereal and downplayed hops. The body is medium to full. The taste begins sweet with a low bitterness at the end but after a few sips the bitterness seems to grow and become more moderate. But this is a highly drinkable beer and worth trying.

Tap. Pours a dark ruby color with minimal head. The flavor has hints of honey and cloves. Nice balance of hops and malts. A unique beer- I haven’t had anything like it. Pretty good overall.

Growler. Had this last fall, looking forward to another batch soon. Pours a medium red, strong malt taste with lesser amount of hop to balance it out. Medium body, light sweetness, creamy with low carbonation. Easy drinking beer

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 On tap at the brewery. Very easy drinking lager that reminded me of many amber ales in both color and taste. Good session beer that will likely become their big seller though I prefer their IPL overall.

On tap at the brewery. Nice fresh malty aroma. Clean, bright beer. Moderate toasted malt plays nicely with a juicy balancing hop. Nice staple offering.

Nut, malt, and a little funk in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with nuts and malt. Some grassy hops in the finish. Pretty standard, but also pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with a light red hue. Nose is lightly nutty with sweetness and brown sugar. Palate is medium with a crisp finish. Flavors of light nuts and sticky sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
