Sir Walter Raleigh Lager is a Helles Lager which is a golden Bavarian-style lager, with a firm malty body, a subtle hop character, and a slightly sweet finish. Helles is the German word for light or pale, referring to the color of the beer.
Our Helles is bottom-fermented, making it a lager beer, and has a medium to light-body. It has a clean, malt accented aroma and a malty finish with little hop bitterness.
Sir Walter Raleigh Lager is a very balanced beer, meaning that it is not too sweet and not too bitter. It is brewed mostly with pale malted barley and small amounts of Vienna and Munich malts, which increases the body and maltiness in the beer.

Draught. Amber colored, see through with a medium white
head. Aroma is malty. Flavor is thin, more like an amber lager.
Not too impressed with this beer, but it is not completely bad.
Like I say, like a typical amber lager to me.

Draft at Carolina Ale House. Copper colored, with aroma of malt, hopcit, some fruit and florals. Tastes hoppy, malty, with citrus. Sadly, as i type this and try to make an appointment for a tour of Apex, I am told that they are officially out of business.
