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.

Copper in color; head diminshed quickly; nice nose. Rather round in body for a lager. Very quaffable. Very nicely balanced.

Really good, but the Victory and some others have a slight edge. Defer to VENOM and urbnhautebourg’s descriptions!

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2002
Clear light copper. Sticky, vanilla head. Speckled carbonation. Toasty sweet malt aroma with sharp, spicy German hops. Boldly crisp, clean and fresh. Rich Munich maltiness and spicy Hallertau hops. Delicate sweetness. Strange but good malt aftertaste. Medium light body. Finishes full and spicy with cottony malts. Nice Marzen.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2002
The pour a clear amber color, the head impressive, then fades to bit of surface scum. The lace in skimpy clumps on the sides of the glass. Nose is malt, lightly sweet, clean and crisp. Front is malt, lightly sweet, the top flimsy, the finish has appropriate hops, modestly acidic, and a somewhat dry aftertaste. Drinkable, average at best, not anything to get excited about. Ranks #982 on my current 1000 beer master list.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 Update: You know, I think they changed the recipe on this one. It used to taste something like Boulevard Bob's 47. Now it has a peat smoke flavor to it. Quite different than it was, but still very enjoyable. Old: The bottle says 'Bavarian style', but don"t think Bavarian Helles. This seems more in the kellerbier tradition, like St. Georgenbrau. And though American, does not have the hop presence of amber lagers like Brooklyn. Malt is the story here. Full, rich malt with roasted grain flavors, not unlike that found in better Octoberfest brews. Oakes must have had a bad sample. Very nice indeed.

Typical Lager.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2002
Amber; light malty aroma; soft malty palate. Uninteresting.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2002
Golden/orange color. Sweet malt and some citrusy hop notes in the nose. Slightly organic tasting and a touch of malt and hops. Nicely balanced Lager, not mainstream oriented.

Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 19, 2002
Dark reddish color, some head that vanished rather quickly. Low on gas, bitter. Not that much on aftertaste.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Aroma is slight but very inviting. Nice caramel and munich malts with a perfect ballance of Euro hops. Not as hoppy as Brooklyn’s lager, which makes Troegs a little easier to drink for a lager. Very smooth and drinkable. No metallic or harsh tastse whatsoever. An excellent lager overall.
