COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale lager beer made without the darker malts that we use in Roslyn Beer. It is hopped primarily with Yakima Hallertau hops, and may remind you of a beer you might find at a small gasthaus in Germany. It is especially popular with people who like full-bodied, lighter beers with mild hopping, and is named for the Brookside neighborhood of Roslyn.

22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a dark copper color with a thick creamy head. Very oily appearance with a near absent, soft fruit aroma. Fruity flavor to it as well. Soft grains, a little banana. Not your typical pale lager by any means. Pretty good beer to enjoy watching morning baseball.

Ernest (6662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with notes of pear syrup, gum, and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A bit sweet and fruity, but it seems clean and the nose is pleasant. Rather ale-like.

hayduke (3676) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Got this in Wenatchie, WA at Sticks. Pours hazy orange with a big white head and good lacing. Nose of light roasted malts, some floral hops, and tropical fruit. Medium body and very smooth and clean mouth feel. The flavor is rich for a pale lager, and the floral and grassy hops, mixed with the fruit flavors, and nice bitter finish make for an outstanding lager.

trevor211 (1408) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Transparent orange. Mild, slightly grassy hops, with a decent balance. Malt profile (oats, maybe some rye?) comes through a little more in the flavor. Quite mild, but with a good flavor. Nice.

22 oz. from chuck’s @ $4.59. This is an adjunt lager? Could have fooled me. It tastes great and the Hallertau give it a nice peppery flavor in contrast to what I would typically think of as an "adjunct lager". This is a damn fine beer.
