COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty, tawny-colored, full-bodied lager with moderate hop bitterness. The gentle hop rate helps to balance the sweetness from the malt, and the hop aroma is low.

Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Pretty good strong lager. A tasty style. True-to-style but not especially memorable. If you love bock beer, this is as good as the rest, better than most macros. It’d be easy to drink a pitcher.

phaleslu (6609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Draft served in a tall glass at the Tap Room. Nice to see this one back on tap after a long hiatus. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet, caramel, and bready malts, lots of toast, nuts, and brown sugar. Flavor of the same array of malts, nuts, toast, brown sugar, subtle fruit (apple, apricot), and a little earthy note. The hops are really in the background on this one. Light-medium bodied with a toasty, malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice bock and right on the money for what I wanted and expected from Schlafly with this style. Hit the spot.

Tasted 9/19/09. Draft from Schlafly’s Hop in the City. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Aromas of caramel and light toast. On the fuller side of medium bodied with a sticky malt character and a smooth palate. Caramel and toast and a slight fudge note. Faint hops in the finish. Lingering sweet malts. Tasty!

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Sweet, malty, bready aroma, with notes of toffee and cocoa, along with lighter touches of cinnamon and fruitiness. Deep, dark amber color, clear, with a fine, lasting head. Flavor is predominantly sweet and malty, more gentle fruit in the background, along with nutty, toffeeish, chocolate malts and a mild hop addition late. Bitterness is negligible. Lingering caramel tones. Smooth, easy-going palate, body is light-medium. True to style and tasty.

Narnad (1464) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Back on tap starting Feb 13 (listed on website as well). Had this beer on tap at the St. Louis Tap Room downtown. Ruby-brown color, low carbonation, thin film head and the beer left great lacing. Aroma is semi-fruity of apple, caramel malt, grassy hops and has a faint alcohol aroma. Flavor is grassy hops upfront and moves into a nice sweet middle with caramel hints and finishes with a smooth alcohol and roasted malt finish. Overall a great beer and one I wish they would brew up for distribution.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Pours clear bronze with a tan head. The aroma has musty dark toasted malt with some toffee. Medium body with light carbonation. The flavor starts with toasted malt that is fairly thin tasting - there are also some medicinal qualities. The finish is metallic and sour. I don’t think I’ll be having this one again.

#1006, on tap at the brewery on 1/28/2007. Dark brown, clear with no carbonation and clear. Very slim white head that is quickly discipating. The nose has lots of cream and yeast with some hints of grains. Taste has some yeast with more dark skins and malts roasted in and out. Reasonable alcohol presence. Very drinkable and spot on for the style.
