A Vienna-style lager beer. Ruby Lager is brewed in the American tradition with choice malted barley, rice and corn along with hops from Germany and the Czech Republic. Ruby Lager is slightly malty and medium bodied with a toasted nutty finish.

HopTsing (469) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2012
From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

Cybercat (4163) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Strong, malty aroma has a yeasty overtone but is otherwise about average. It pours a clear dark coppery brown with a fairly thick, slightly yellowish light tan head. Malty flavor has yeasty and grassy notes with just a hint of apple, nothing special but still enjoyable. Texture is quite fizzy but just a bit on the thin side. Overall, a decent if not outstanding brew.

bubbleflubber (2058) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2012
On draught at the brewery. Pours a nut amber with ring lace. The nose is of caramel and walnuts. Sweet caramel malt with a hint of cherry on the tongue. A well-balanced bitter back finishes the pull. Soft carbonation and a medium body accompany a smooth mouthfeel. Decent.

decaturstevo (5517) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Amber pour with watery off white head. Aroma of light brown sugar, caramel, and paper. Light caramel taste with a nice earthy bitter finish. A bit thin and foamy. Pretty nice light bodied beer.

jhliesen (786) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle---the pour finished with a large head. The color is a pale brown with lacing around the edge of the beer. Aroma was malt, caramel and sugar. The taste was the same with some candy like toffee, slight bitter taste in the finish. OK beer but it needs to get everything together to improve. Bruisin Ales 4.50

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle at the local. This is what it is. Not the best vienna I have had but its better than most schwill. A tad overly corney and vegetable-ly at times. Not one I plan to revisit.

Tasted at twin city taps. So so beer. They did hit a ruby colored lager but missed the taste it is just an unbalanced mess.

Thanks to emacgee... dark amber with a copper center, clear, big tope head, very cloud like with great retention, looks great... really cheap generic nose, caramel and skunk, lots of corn, and some coffee, not great... the taste is even worse!, super flat, devoid of flavor at the front then a chemical skunk finish... pass on this

Bomber. Clear, bight red color with a small white head. Touch of yeast and grain on the nose. Only a bit more malt sweetness than a pale lager and a similarly short finish. Not bad, but boring and not worth going back to.
