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.

Skyview (5150) - 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.

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.

Pours a deep brown with a frothy off white head that adds a little creamy texture to your early sips. It actually sticks around for a while. Flavor has some nice toasty grain aspects to it and a candi sugar sweetness that is pleasant. A step up from a straight lager to add a little more depth and complexity to your drink. Faint grass and herb aromas. Finish is much the same from that hop profile. Solid sessionable beer.

Slightly sweet flavor, toasty, light chocoalte malt, mostly dusty and nutty, with a slightly slick diacetyl. Mild sweetness in the edn with an herbal finish.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle:   Deep ruby, heavy on the brown hues, moderate to large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft roasted malts and whole wheat bread on the nose.   Soft ash and roasted malts up front, but they die rather quickly.   Beer seems a little lighter/thinner than I remember it being.   Its clean, but not terribly robust.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leaning towards the thin side.   Yeah, finishes clean and fairly smooth, but just lacks some more depth and body.   Not bad tho.

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.

brenn79 (1467) - 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 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.
