COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Export Lager features a single stage decoction—a first for Tröegs Brewery. After combining barley and water we transfer a portion of the mash to the brew kettle for a quick boil. The heated mash is then returned to the mash kettle and the brewing process continues. This process deepens the malt character and adds a subtle toffee backbone to this delicious lager.

We’ve added Magnum hops for bittering and Czech Saaz hops for aroma to create a classic European Noble hop flavor.

Scratch #6-2007 is unfiltered, so there will be a slight haze to the beer.

Pours out mostly light gold color. Aroma of some yeast and grassy hops. Taste is of some yeast, slight malt sweetness, grain and a grassy hop finish. Drinkable and rather smooth.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of corn, bready malts, toffee, and citrus. Taste of citrus, corn, light toffee, metal and toasted dough, and a bitter, hoppy finish. Certainly my least favorite scratch, and possibly my least favorite Tröegs so far.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium foamy white head that left some lacing. Aroma of bready malt, hints of citrus, sweet malts, grass and some corn. Flavors of noble hops, lightly grassy, some cereal grains, bready, soft pretzels, lightly toasted malts, kind of dry, crisp and tingly carbonation. A nice Helles.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium an hazy yellow color with a larger sized white head. As soon as I popped this one open, I was greeted with a strong grainy almost vegetable aroma. Skunky and sweaty. Tastes of grains, some sweetness, and citrus. A style I’m not crazy about, but this one was drinkable...

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Draft sample at Troegs. The first scratch beer that doesn’t do much for me. It has an almost funky sour grain husk nose, but it’s fresh, with fresh corn, potatoes and other starchy scents. Rough and heavy on the tongue but not thick, it’s moderately bitter and dry, turning pasty in the finish, with a corase, almost lactic quality, and a general flavor of potato and corn. Strange. Could it be that I just don’t like dortmunder at all? I’m beginning to suspect something like that.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 Tap, Tröegs. Pours a pale, hazy golden color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Light aroma, showing some sugar and dry citrus and minerals; dry and crisp. Medium mouthfeel: plenty of toasty grains and dry citrus and spritzy carbonation; very drinkable. Medium, grainy and citrus finish.
