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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 mahogany appearance. Chocolaty fruity aroma. Fairly distinctive cocoa/chocolaty flavor almost as strong as a porter albeit in its lighter lager body. Pretty tastey in a style I usually don’t care for too much.

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.

Oakes (12234) - 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.

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.
