A great Dark lager that is highly quaffable beer will appeal to all drinkers of domestic and imported beers. Because this is the style of beer that Henry Saxer would have produced for the drinking public in 1852, it will commemorate Oregon’s first brewer with the name "Henry Saxer Dark Lager."

No. 500!! When poured into my glass, this beer had a small sized tan head that contained fine-large bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body of this beer was clear with carbonation observed and a reddish-brown hue. The nose was malty and fruity with a malt and caramel flavoring. The palate was smooth and medium bodied. This beer left a good amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing and a softly carbonated transparent brown colored body. The aroma is a very nice caramel malt one and the mouthfeel is smooth with a touch of "Brown" feeling to it. The flavor is a medium strength roasted caramel malt one with a mild caramel overtone to it. It is a bit on the thin side and could use a bit more character to it, but still i liked it and would drink it again.

Clear amber brown with a thin light brown head and large bubbles. Malty nose with a nutty, raisen aroma. Flavor is of caramel, sopa pop, and sugar. This has an even nutty taste, though a bit thin.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Dark amber with a short-lived head. Low carbonation. Slight nuttiness in the aroma. Smooth and malty with some roasted and grainy malt flavors. Slightly grassy hop flavors contribute a little in the finish; hardly any bitterness. Slight sourness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but it doesn’t seem to have a lot of personality.

Medium brown color, large head. Medium hops and malts. Medium bodied, roasted malts, slightly sweet malts, good hop flavor. A simple beer, but very well done. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slight bitterness. The malts really come through on this beer.

As with his Public lager, this dark style is quite drinkable. Good malt and hop balance that leaves your palate with a clean and refreshed feel, but still a quite flavor filled beer, not the least bit ’Wimpy’.
