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 pour into pint glass. Earthey and floral in the nose. Nice caramel backbone with a slight earthy bitterness. A hint of fruit in the finish. Has a crisp finish and goes down smooth and refreshing.

Decent amber pour w/ a good tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma is straight malt. Taste is also dominated by malt but finishes rough & not clean. Not very good!

Beachmaster (375) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 19, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light copper, with a small head that rapidly fades, leaving fair lacing. No noticeable nose, and a slightly malty, very faint taste. Watery, not much there.

JDBaker11058 (1763) - Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Appearance: clear copper, with a quickly fading light tan head and no lacing. Aroma: toasty, caramel malts, light toffee, hint of cola. Taste: sweet, toasty malts, caramel, light molasses, warm brown bread. Finish: ends with a pleasant, earthy, mellow hops that balance the lingering sweet toast. Notes: Some confusion. Bottle says ’66 American Amber Lager’. Not sure if this is their ’Route 66 American Lager’ or their ’Amber Lager’. Either way, it’s darn good. Comparable to, but better than, Yuengling.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Trevor. Pours golden clear copper with rapidly settling off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, toffee, lightly nutty, and quite sweet. Flavor is sweet up front, toffee/caramel. Mild and straightforward, but less offensive than your typical premium lager. Moderate carbonation, light body.

z_man (1) - - MAY 16, 2014 does not count
Aroma - A little off-putting. Buttery toast with a whiff of creamed corn notes - A little unpleasant. Appearance - Bright copper color with nice white head that dissipated quickly and left a thin lace on the glass. Taste - Malty sweetness dominated by toast and butter. Did not detect much caramel flavor by my palate. Finished up reasonably dry. Palate - A little thin for a malty beer. Overall - If I were sampling based on aroma I would have passed. This is not a beer I would come back to after my original tasting.

Ferris (10735) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft - Light sweet grains. Pale gold with a rich white head. Sweet pale malts with a dry finish. Pretty nondescript and bland, but better than most.
