nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2009
12oz shorty bottle. Highly filtered amber-tan, almost transparent. Nice frothy head. Piny, soapy hops and brewery malt. The taste is malt centered, with a solid hop backbone. Some smooth caramel flavors, very well balanced. This finish is a touch thin, but it does help keep it drinkable. Above par Amber in my opinion.

Reid (1898) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2009
22oz bomber. Light amber/gold coloured beer. Large thick,creamy off white head. Malty caramel aromas mainlly. Slight "whiff" of hop. Malty but not sweet at all,rather semi-bitter flavour dominates,toasty slightly salty, with fruity undertones and hops at the back. I liked the palate on this one,very enticing and easy, yet with enjoyable complexities. I found this a very acceptable "amber lager". Quite tasty. Almost like a marzen with a wee bit too much hop.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2009
6 pack of 12 oz. bottles purchased at Safeway in Lynnwood, WA. Pours a beautiful amber/copper color with a foamy white head. Flavor: The perfect amount of hops, with balanced malt...hints of

BrownDogBeer (50) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pour a medium dark amber with a slightly off whitehead. Aroma of malt with a little caramel. Crisp palate with good malt taste with a little bit of hops hinting through. Overall a very tasty lager.

poisoneddwarf (1712) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2009 12 oz bottle. Rollick is unique in that Itís an amber lager rather than an ale. Iíve had plenty of amber ales over the years, but this is the first amber lager Iíve had. I give props to Pyramid for creating this beer that is so much different than an amber ale, one of my least favorite American styles. Interesting, not great. Satisfying rather than mind-blowing. Addendum: beer loses its head towards the bottom.

daknole (9101) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Dark orange pour with a very light tan head. Aroma is sweet with some perfumey notes. No hops evident in the smell. Flavor has a slight hop tingle, honey, rose petals and ruby red grapefuit juice. Very different take on the style.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Poured pale amber with a thick lasting white head, like a good lager should. Not quite dark enough to be a dark beer. Mild aroma of hops, and malt. Malty flavour, a tiny bit of herb. Pleasant but not great finish.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Pours amber with a one finger white head. No lacings detected. Aroma is pungent floral hops. Taste is very malty with a good bitter hop balance. I too agree with the Marzen taste profile. Mouthfeel is very good with a slightly bitter finish. A bit high abv for a session beer but I could drink a few at one sitting.

bhensonb (11065) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle from Berkeley that did not twist off. Sam Adams glass. Nice coppery amber color with a multifinger, fine off-white head. Mildly bready and mildly hoppy for aroma. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet with some offsetting noble hop. A very good lager. Surprising, coming from me.
