COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tröegs Bavarian Lager is an authentic German style lager, brewed with Munich malts, Hallertau Hops and fermented at cool temperatures followed by a full month of aging, or "lagering", to impart a range of complex maltiness and subtle aromas only found in traditional German lagers.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper, clear, and with a fizzy bone-white head. Nice nutty and and toased malt aroma. Clean crisp flavor, heavy on the toasted malt, minimal on the hops, with a slightly sweet nutty finish. Lighter bodied and a little fizzy on the tongue, but that’s what you get from this style. Overall a pretty decent beer. Basic, but very drinkable with no real faults.

Another 12 oz. bottle from kramer17801. Thanks. Golden amber pour with a pretty good sized head. Aroma was malty, with just a little sweetness. Flavor was down a bit from the nose. More malts, and some lingering bitterness. Not bad.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Copper color wtih no head. Aroma of dry caramel and malt. The taste is a simple dry malt base with nothing else really noticeable.

Pours to a deep copper color with a thick creamy white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is caramel and is quite grainy. Lager indeed. There are also apparent earthen hops. Butter. The flavor is very malty. I think this is bordering on Marzen. Buttered bread and squash? Fest characteristics. The palate is creamy and nice. Has some lactose? This is perhaps the best Premium Lager I’ve had.

TChrome (1415) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Beer pours an attractive copper color with a slowly dissipating off white colored head. Aroma sends off notes of caramel malt and some nuts. Flavor is a bit restrained, but does indeed remind one of a Marzen. Nice malty breadiness with a hint of caramel and a nice lager taste. They did not rush this one. I agree with the comments of maltdog in reference to the Oktoberfest nature of this beer. This is much more of an Oktoberfest than the Aktien I drank the other day. Very nice lager.

maltdog (616) - Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Attractive beige fluff floats atop the brilliant copper body. Gauzy sheets of finely beaded lace coat the glass. Aromas of nutty malt, artisinal bread, hard candy, and hop spice. Nutty, toffeeish, buttery flavors accented by herbal and rye spiciness. As the chill dissipates, diacetyl becomes apparent in the nose and taste. Fullish mouthfeel, smooth and silky. Finishes clean with a flash of tart berry and just a kiss of malt aftertaste. To me, the beer sits squarely in O’fest territory.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2005
12 oz bottle: Light amber w/ a lasting, but thin off white head. Green apple and buttery diacetyl make for a caramel covered apple aroma. Very little malt sweetness, and diacetyl only gets stronger as it warms. The flavor starts out w/ a sulphury yeast and sweetness up front w/ a bit of bitterness mid palate. Overall well balanced; Some light malt flavor and a bit of green apple in the flavor as well. Higher level of carb., smooth (probably due to diacetyl), and lighter medium body. Most of the flavor comes from it’s flaws! Not a very clean bottle and needs to have more flavor from malt and hops to be a good lager IMHO.

this beer was a decent lager, but pretty non-descript and average in every catagory. But worth a try none the less

Had this just a few weeks after visiting Munich, and they do quite a job on it. Full, sweet, and bready with some bitterness in the back. Excellent.
