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.

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.

IndianaRed (3123) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle Pours a very dense, dark brown. Rather thin coarse dark tan head that quickly recedes but maintains a thin cramy ring. Spotty lacing. Woody, smokey aroma. Lots of chocolaty light roasted notes as well. Flavor is heavy on the toasted malts, cocolate and grassy bitter componant. Slightly bitter astringent trailer. A lager with some backbone. Interesting, but one is enough.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy amber-brown with a small beige head. Smell of honey, caramel, brown sugar and dark bread. Moderately sweet, caramel and toasted notes, herbal bitter aftertaste. Light-bodied, dry on palate.

pinkzambia (1763) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
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.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
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.

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.
