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.

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. I’ve had better. Thanks Josh!

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.

Skyview (5215) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Received a 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear light brown colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some toffee, toasted biscuits, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of powdered roasted caramel malt, a hint of ice tea, some biscuits and toffee. Finish is slightly chalky, semi-dry, with a powdered caramel malt aftertaste that slowly disappears.

Deep dark brown color with a nice head. This was smooth and flavorful and had some great spices to the flavor also. Loved the deep rich malts used. This was a wonderful beer to drink.

A bit malty in the aroma. Red color. Malty, a bit of roast but very slight. Pretty good beer, but only at the beginning of an evening. A tad malty as well.

CapFlu (4538) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Dog & Pony in Renton, WA, on October 19, 2007. White foamy dissipated head with a brown body. Nose of vanilla, roasted malt. Very sour and somewhat milky. Something wrong here?

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
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.

maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
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.
