COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tommyknockers slipped into the mining camps in the 1800’s with the discovery of gold to the West. The majestic Rocky Mountains have inspired the cool refreshing taste of Alpine Glacier Lager. As clean and fresh as the rushing water from icy streams and as brisk as a climb up a frozen glacier, this brew contains the finest ingredients in the Tommyknocker tradition.

"An ok lager. Clean and crisp, and very simple and unassuming. While it didn’t do anything to make you stand up and take notice, the bitter and sweet balance was kinda nice...and it was well better than the amber lager :) though i had this at a different tasting."

Not too bad. Aroma is nonexistent but the pour is ok & the taste is crisp & carries ok flavor for the style. Can’t rip this one too much!

BOSSbrewer (1937) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a clear golden with one finger of white head. Aroma is bread and some floral. Slightly hoppy. Slightly sweet. Decent beer.

ajnepple (2418) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Gold, pale and clear with a small white head. Pretty fresh aroma of citrus fruits, hops and pale malts. Similar flavor, mild and crisp with a lingering bitter finish.

oh6gdx (20842) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottled. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is bready malt, some slight sweetness, mild floral and grassy notes along with some doughlike notes as well. Flavour is rather similar, but also has some slight nutmeg like notes to it. Gets a bit more body as it warms up a bit from being fridgecold.

kaser (2998) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Light golden with sticky head. Fruity flavor on a typical pilsner. Would say above average though. Had this on draft at tommyknocker brewpub.

PotjeBier (1762) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013
Backlog, from notes. On tap @ the brewpub in Phoenix, AZ, 16 May 2001. Golden color. Aroma’s: somewhat sweet, malty/grainish. Flavor is light malty sweet. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Not exciting, but with 104 degrees outside it went down well.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Noble hops and dms in aroma. Beer poors brilliant golems with a persistent white head. Medium sweet, corn flavor, smooth noble hop bitterness. Overall, the beer is drinkable, but has a strong corn flavor that’s a bit too strong.

rosenbergh (7239) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Lively pale golden colour with an average sized white head. Malt, marzipan and a note of hops in the mild aroma. The flavour is bitter, but no very good. It’s not balanced and it’s not tasty. Not much more there than bitterness.
