COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Winter Lager seasonal went over so well in 2011 that we decided to make a year-round beer! Route 66 is a traditional, amber lager brewed with four types of barley, Hallertauer and Willamette hops giving it a crisp, malty finish. 5.0% ABV and 18 IBU’s. Available only in bottles and on draft at select locations. Go here to find out where!

Amber red with a fluffy white head, solid retention and nice lace. Caramel malt aromas with hints of grass and toast. Sweetish flavor profile, mostly from the caramel, biscuit notes and light bitterness. Light to medium body, generous effervescence, prickly mouthfeel and a dry, crisp finish.

Beer of month club. Pours an ice tea color. Nose is malt. Taste is all caramel malt - some sweetness. This is a really simple beer - it's not bad, but very basic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crazyvin (1951) - New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
A light amber body with a white head that faded away quickly. Elevated level of carbonation present. Aroma was a mix of caramel and corn, flavor was too. Light palate. Really not much going on, but not a bad beer.
