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

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Poured from a pint bottle into a Harpoon snifter. The color is a ruby red color with a gold tint. There is a slight wisp of off-white head with a good a good amount of carbonation. The aroma is pretty sweet with some fruity cherry aroma in the nose. There is a slight touch of grainy flavor in the nose as well. The taste has a candy light flavor that has a nice sweetness that is missing from some lagers but not this one. There is an ale like characteristics that is found here in the juicy fruit flavor with a cherry and grape flavor that also has the faintest crisp flavor and feel. This beer does have a lighter crispness that is like a lager but gives off a fruit taste that punches the tongue like an ale. This beer seems to want to go places it might not be prepared to do. The is some promises as you begin to sip this that does not seem to be fulfilled.

(Bouteille): Superbe couleur ambrée lumineuse, une mousse saine et persévérante et des arômes de caramel rôti et tarte aux pommes. En bouche c’est moelleux avec un bel équilibre gazon/céréales. Hautement engouffrable.

Bottle (500 ml) at home. Bought at Parker Pie. Clear bright amber with a medium off-white head, medium retention leaving some lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bread, mild spiciness grassy notes and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with toasted malts, breadied malts, grassy notes, caramel/toffee and mild spiciness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Grassy finish. Another amazing lager from Jack’s Abby. Good malt depth, but also great drinkability. Loved it!

Bottle split 2 ways. Amber brown pour, clear but a bit dull with smallish white foam. Aroma is nice and roasty, toasted malt, nice and fresh rye bread, light peppery notes, light grassy notes, quite hoppy for the style. Taste is malty, light sweetness, good balance of character and drinkability. Palate is light bodied, smooth carbonation. Good stuff.
