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.

Draught @ WABF 2008. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Has a malty caramel aroma with some weak hints of hops. Sweetish slightly roasted malty caramel flavor with some bready hints. Also some hoppy hints. Sweetish malty caramel finish.

Draught at the brewery
Dark brown color with compact head. Dry, roasty, a bit dusty, but also with a touch of chocolate. A bit too dry in the final, almost astringent.
Not bad.

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Cloudy dark amber-brown appearance. Light crystal malt aroma with some fruitiness. Fairly light flavour profile - maybe some cocoa accents. Mild, sweetish finish. Despite its lightness, it’s a fairly successful beer due to smooth palate and rounded flavours.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a decent beige/tan head. Rich roast malt aromas - rather dark malt. Medium body with watery/frothy carbonation. Flavoer is smooth dark toasted malt. Not at all sweet or sticky. Very smooth. Seems mild.

Deep brown beer, no head. Aroma is farily clean. Sweet toast and toffee. Caramelly and well decocted. Flavour is okay, a bit plasticy, but otherwise nicely sweet and toasty.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - APR 12, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. 4%. Hazy amber-brown. Aroma of malt, nuts, toast, caramel, a bit of chocolate, and herbal hops notes. Sweetish flavor, slightly sourish, with malt, toast, nuts, a bit of chocolate, a herbal hops note and a slightly bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

22 oz. bottle from trade (I can’t remember who). Pours a clear deep reddish brown with a small off white ring. The aroma had an initial sweet maltiness with touches of dark fruit, light floral and the slightest nuttiness. The flavor is dark fruits, some roasted malt, floral, dusty almost char, and lightly nutty. The finish is dry with a light bitterness.

22. Pours deep grainy brown, opaque, with a thick, sudsy tan head and some impressive sheets of lace for the style. Nutty, cola-like nose. Soft clean body, light fizzy carb, nuts and caramel and cola notes coming through straightaway. Lovely stuff. I’ve always so enjoyed this beer--especially on draft--but even in the bottle it doesn’t disappoint.
