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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Dark mahogany with a filmy head and spotty lacing. Roast and some chocolate in the nose. A touch bitter. The flavor is mostly same as the nose with the exception being notes of coffee. Light bodied and dry finishing roasty.

Bottle from DA. Rich, deep brown colore with bits of red. Moderate tan head leaves great lacing. Nicely roasty in aroma. Light in body. Clean, roasted malt flavors with nut and coffee being dominant. A bit drying?? Decent.

ContemplateBeer (1432) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Aroma of chocolate and light caramel. Appearance is dark brown with tan head; not much carbonation. Flavor matches the nose, with light toasted malts becoming more apparent. Palate is creamy and smooth. A pretty mundane dunkel.

brenn79 (1429) - Idaho, USA - DEC 3, 2009
22 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with little head, aroma isn’t much, some malt. The flavor is also very malty with a bitter aftertaste, it’s mellow, drinkable and interesting but not great.

22 oz. Bottle: Dark amber color with a minimal light brown head. Sweet malty aroma of alcohol, roasted nuts with sugar on them and a woody thing going on. Wood and smoke and a deep musty taste along with an earthy notes as well. Thin body with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing this Washington specialty.

CheersMate (1299) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2010
22 oz. bottle Translucent brown with a wispy head. Slight nuttiness, but mainly I’m smelling dark fruit -- figs, for me. Not much of an aroma, in fact, this beer isn’t pungent whatsoever. The head faded away rather quickly. The flavor is a bit dull. The beer has some nuttiness, and sweetness coming from the malts, but not much. This beer is quite boring, and texture isn’t great either. I should have possibly imbibed this at a much cooler temperature.

Bottle - 22oz. Flat. No carbonation. No head. That being said; the malt is rich and smooth. Light sweetness with a cereal grain essense. A little nutty and earthy. Wish I got one that had a little CO2 left on the bottle. Liked the bottle art!

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.
