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.

Amber; light malty aroma; soft malty palate. Uninteresting.

Beautiful copper colored beer, looks like an ale, at least until you get the smell of those German hops. The flavor is as advertised, a solid german lager, the hops and malts balancing nicely. the finish feels dry, and the german hops bitterness remains in the back of my throat for a good long while. All in all, a very nice rendition of a lager.

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

Dark reddish color, some head that vanished rather quickly. Low on gas, bitter. Not that much on aftertaste.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Pours a clear copper with decent carbonation and a half inch off-white head. Bland stale malty lager aroma, but true to style. Body has some light dry caramel and peat malt character with a hint at fruit toward the bittering finish. Has good complexity for a lager, but could still use a little more balance.

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.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2003
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.

Poured a copper color with a small off white head that quickly diminished leaving no lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel malt, and dry, straw, toasted aroma. Initial malty sweetness, with a light, lingering, hop bitterness. Rather dry finish.

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.

Lightly hazed amber color witha smallish beige head. Caramel malt and mild perfume hops in the aroma. Hearty thick malt flavors of dry caramel and rye. Light acidic finish. Long deep malt linger. I envision this is what a lager in pre-pro days was like.
