Scratch 13-2008 is all about tradition. This copper lager is reminiscent of what you would find under one of those mammoth tents in Munich this time of year.

A rich trio of Pils, Munich and Vienna malts combined with the light bitterness of noble hops creates this traditional lager beer. We left this one unfiltered to bring out a slight yeast flavor.

Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of tan head that trailed off to nothing. All this was on top of a clear copper colored body brew. Aromas of bread, malts and a light hop’s filled my nose. The flavor that was the most pronounced was the sweet malt not to much bitter .Not to the place where I would call it sticky sweet but sweeter than most Octoberfest’s. I also picked up some nuttiness in it as well. Typical larger mouthfeel smooth easy drinking a great representation of the style and another fine brew from Tröegs.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours out a mostly clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet malts with slight bitterness. Taste is sweet, slight fruit notes and some bitter grassy hops going on in there also. A decent example of an average style.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Clear copper body with a thin white head. Very light buttery and cardboard aroma with some caramel, bread, and yeast. The taste is clean and crisp yet full bodied. Seems a bit oxidized with some butter and cooked veggies, but overall very east drinking and flavorful. Not bad for the style, but a bit run of the mill.
