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.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2005 (Bottled on October/03/03) I poured the beer rather hard, but fortunately, it did not spillover. The beer shows an attractive head and lace. The beer is a bit darker than I was expecting for a Bavarian style lager. I was expecting the color to be more along the lines of a helles. The nose is fresh, clean, and hoppy. I find the palate to be smooth, clean, and a little bit smoky. The beer finishes nice and spicy. This is a hard beer to categorize, it is IMO neither a helles nor a marzen, but nonetheless an ok beer.

Lighter brown color with offwhite head. The aroma is a combination both sweet and sour maltiness. The flavor is characterized by mild sweetness. Finishes with a touch of smokiness. Not as thin most american lagers.

ale tasting to me, but maybe i don't know what this style of lager should taste like. a nice way to trick normal drinkers into having something with complexity. reminds me of an ale, some sort of taste i can't put my finger on. nice on in the variety pack.

The aroma was a nice malty smell, and the taste was very interesting. Nice sweet malt flavor, with an odd kind of smokey tinge to it. Very good and a definately one I'll have again.

Dark caramel with a nutty aroma. The flavor is heavily toffee, with a hint of walnuts or almonds and a proud smoky finish, hinting at a Bamberg-style Rauchbier without the overwhelming character of a burned down house. Robust flavors, but thin consistency.

Sort of sourish, in a citrusy way, and lightly bitter. Quite nice. Nothing like a Kellerbier, in my opinion.

This is one great brew from Tröegs. It pours out a deep, reddish orange color, with a healthy head on top. The head lasts until the bottom of the glass. It has just the right amount of hops, not too sweet, not too bitter. The malty aromas & flavors are just delicious. It goes down smoothly, with a residual sweetness on the palate. The only complaint I have about this beer is it's hard to find in my area. Other than that, I think it's a winner.

Troegs accomplishes the amazing feat of brewing quintessential examples of every style they try. This Lager has an intersting malty profile with a slightly sticky sweet profile. Not my fave style or fave brew from Troegs, but really, really well done and a fresh take on the style. Like all Troegs it's not pasteurized so the clean, fresh, bready flavors really shine through.

An average lager. Was not that impressed with the taste. I would have expected better for a microbrew.

Not bad, but I expected better from Troegs (and for the price). Had a very strange aroma that I can't quite describe (and that's strange in a bad way).
