COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mild dark lager with a distinct character, and closely resembles the lager handcrafted by the German brewmeisters at the original Roslyn Brewery one hundred years ago. We use our own recipe of Roslyn water, fresh from the Cascade Mountains, four types of malted barley and three hop varieties to produce this smooth lager.

The perfect transition beer from Winter to Spring. Poured from a bomber into a regular pint glass. Nice brown/dark amber in the glass with nice head retention. Plenty of roasted malts on the nose with a smidge of coffee plus faint hops. More roasted malts and coffee on the palate followed by a slight hop bitterness. Maybe I was just in the perfect mood but this was delicious.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is toasty and fairly bready. Taste is really quite toasty, but has a nice bit of crispness to it. Decent, but nothing special.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately roasted malty. Appearance: large, frothy, light brown, initial head with mostly lasting longevity. Dark brown body. Taste: moderately sweet initial taste with moderately bitter finish and long duration. Palate: medium-bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: outstanding. Great taste--somewhat complex but not overpowering. I look forward to drinking this beer again.

Pours a deep brown with a frothy off white head that adds a little creamy texture to your early sips. It actually sticks around for a while. Flavor has some nice toasty grain aspects to it and a candi sugar sweetness that is pleasant. A step up from a straight lager to add a little more depth and complexity to your drink. Faint grass and herb aromas. Finish is much the same from that hop profile. Solid sessionable beer.

650ml bottle pours a reddish brown color with about a finger of white head which settles slowly leaving some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts with some dark fruit. Taste is light roasted malt sweetness with some dark fruitness and a light hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation leave a nice mouthfeel. This is a well done lager with qualities of a German bock and quite tasty.

madvike (2693) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours with a creamy tan head on a dark cola body. Dark bready malt on the nose, with light yeast, baking spices, and a pleasant blend of nuttiness and milkiness. Taste is pumpernickel bread--pretty dry with a hint of brown sugar and a pretty milky finish. There’s a sharpness in there too--not sure if that’s the hops or a little roasted malt. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Didn’t know what to expect, as I know little about this style, but I was pleasantly surprised.

On tap at Fremont Oktoberfest Seattle, WA. Pours dark brown with shades of black...no head, white lacing, and evidence of little carbonation. Slightly roasted aroma and light fruity esthers. Close your eyes and it might as well be BMC beer in this cup. No roasted nor toasted flavors present. Slightly medicinal finish and astringent mouthfeel. Rough finish to say the least.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle:   Deep ruby, heavy on the brown hues, moderate to large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft roasted malts and whole wheat bread on the nose.   Soft ash and roasted malts up front, but they die rather quickly.   Beer seems a little lighter/thinner than I remember it being.   Its clean, but not terribly robust.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leaning towards the thin side.   Yeah, finishes clean and fairly smooth, but just lacks some more depth and body.   Not bad tho.
