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.

Bottle: Dark brown color, tan head, some lacing. Nose of light chalky roast with some tart fruit. The flavor is mellow in richness, almost like a dunkel with no body. Iíve had better. Thanks Josh!

Maybe I just canít appreciate a lager properly but I was disappointed. As far as lagers go I enjoyed this more than most but I still felt that there was a lack of complexity I could just not get over. It was very crisp and clean and did avoid some of things that most lagers donít as far as flavor goes. Whan I lived in MN and had yet to be exposed to craft brews I would have raved about this but what can I say Iíve been spoiled since.

This is totally standard for the style. Fairly drinkable, slightly bitter, some smokiness, just very by-the-book. One good aspect this beer has is the complete lack of a generic lager bite, making it very drinkable, just nothing to write home about.

This is a true handcrafted beer, that every person who does not drink dark beer....should drink. I really enjoyed this.

Dark brown color. Medium sized tannish head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and toffee. A medium bodied dark lager. Malts are roasty, chocolately and fruity. Hops are slightly grapefruity. Nicely balanced. Lighter mouthfeel, but it has a lot of roasty maltyness to it. Nice beer. Simple, yet unassuming. Nice flavors. Mouthfeel is light. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and toasty.

Dark brew, tan head. Big roasty chocolate aroma and flavor. Drank well, not light or watery but certainly not heavy...does finish crisp, chocolate lingers on for a bit afterwards. A very enjoyable session brew that went great with grilling and the finished grilled kabobs.

Black--amber hued beer with creamy, slightly browned head. The aroma improved markedly as this chilled beer warmed. Rounded roasted malting prevailed in smell and taste, as the beer finished with a coffee note. This divine offering has some robustnessp to the body, but is crisp in finish like a lager. A beer more people should try on their palates.
