Dam Lager is a low hopped American style amber lager that boasts a sweet caramel malt backbone. It is brewed with three types of American malt grown in the fertile malt-growing region of the northern Midwest and hopped with German Magnum and Tradition hops from the hop-growing region of southwest Germany Together in the kettle, they form a delicate, malt-driven beer with a subtle herbal aroma and a slightly sweet and clean finish.

JDBaker11058 (1415) - Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Appearance: clear light copper with gold notes, white head with some persistence. Aroma: light malt, corn, light grass. Aroma: warm toast and cereal grains, hint of grassy bitterness. Finish: finishes with a slightly metallic note. Notes: Tastes almost like a home brew, and not a great one. But it’s not terrible. The finish was the main down note.

hopscotch (9846) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Can... Clear golden pour with a big, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The restrained aroma offers faint notes of cinnamon, honey and flora. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Crisp, minerally, earthy finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10390) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Can at home. Pours brilliantly clear amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet toast and cookie malt, light bready notes with spicy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Clean and lightly sweet; just a simple, good beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Can from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours light brown with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose. Has a bit of caramel malt on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. can from Wegmans Leesburg The Good: Decent looking brew with a light copper color. Fairly clean flavor wise. Easy drinking and at 4.5%, highly sessionable. The Bad: Non-descript nose. Overly sweet for the style and lacking in any kind of balancing bitterness. A bit too much of a corn note for me. Too simplistic and lacking in character. Overall Impression: Perhaps a decent transition beer for BMC drinkers, but there are much better craft examples of a Vienna/Amber lager.

nimbleprop (5341) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 1, 2014
12oz can pours a clear orange with some frothy white head. Nose is loads of corn sweetness, stevia, some grain, a little buttered toast. Flavor is similar, tastes like a shitty third world lager, butterscotch, malt, corn, some bread. Medium bodied finish.

Kinz (3395) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Can at RVC. Poured a dark gold, slightly brown edge. Aroma was sweet honey malts and some dirty hops. Flavor was creamed corn and honey accented malts. Sweet, not clean, and that weird creamed corn thing going on. DMS city, baby. At least this is how it struck me. Yikes. And I had been psyched when I first saw it. I’ll have to circle back and try this again to see if my rating is consistent. Disappointed. Hate to say this, but I couldn’t finish.
