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.

A hearty lager. Sweeter than I expected, but very nice. Pours an amber gold with a nice temporary head. Still trying to figure out why it has such a nice well-rounded presentation yet seems to taste slightly off at times. Guess I’ll have to do more research!

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Darkened orange body with a light haze. Frothy, slightly rocky, off-white foam. Earthy hop aroma infused with honey and sweet, bready malts. Underlying notes of glazed dates and melon. Soft, fluffy carbonation. Fairly grainy body. First sip is multilayered with sweet malts. Tasty medley of minerals and slick fruitiness provide a nice counterpoint to the fat malt base. Very low hop presence other than some mild leafiness and gentle spice. Some husky pale malts accentuate the toffee and roasted malt flavors. Subtle notes of plum and unsweetened chocolate assist the thickly malted finish. Long afterthoughts of roasted malts, alcohol-soaked bread, and whispers of juicy tropical fruit. Exquisitely balanced and flavorful.

Pours amberish. Aroma of malt, hops, some honey. Tastes malty, with some hops, and caramel sweetness in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a clear red color with a thick and fluffy off white head. Good aroma that is a perfect balance of sweet malts and hops, although there is a touch more malt than hop. Solid malt flavor with a semi-sweet backbone and a nice hoppy bite at the end. Very smooth and creamy. Thanks Warrior.

Crisp and fresh. Light body. Taste gives some graininess, detracting from this otherwise refreshing pale yellow lager.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2004
12oz. bottle: It pours a dark golden color. A bit of an off-white head that doesn't linger. It has a lighter, sweeter aroma that has a hint of spiciness and breadiness to it. Matly sweet taste. Slight taste of hops and spiciness. Much better than the typical industrial lager. Goes down well.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2004
The palate of this was very nice - medium-thick malts (sweet/bready) with soft carbonation. Hops were at odds with the sweet malts though.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 One of the better basic lagers that I have had and really a shame that they retired it.+++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a beautiful dark red-brown with a small tan head. It is heavily carbonated. There is a moderate malty scent. The flavor is malty and sweet. The maltiness lingers. This beer lacks the typical macro aftertaste common to so many lagers - And a big plus in this beer’s favor IMHO. This is a very nice lager that I wish was still being made.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Copper color with a fluffy, off-white head. Malty sweet aroma, nothing fancy. Medium mouth, smooth roasted malt flavor, a bit of grainyness. Finishes lightly bitter. Very nice.

Good spicey hop aroma with malt rounding it out. Poured with a full cream colored head that hung in for a while. Clear amber colored beer. Good hop flavor with a nice malt sweetness in the finsh. A very good bavarian style lager, I will be drinking more of these!
