COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exhibiting a deep, chestnut color and malty aroma All Malt Dark Lager is a very inviting beer. Mildly malty, with little lingering sweetness to note, Dark Lager is surprisingly refreshing. This is beer as it was meant to be, firm and satisfying. Seasonal specialty available January - April on draft.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Light off-white head quickly leaves the medium brown body. Fairly light flavors, bready maltiness pairing along an almost nutty, fruity toasted malt aspects. Good sweet-dry balance. More roastiness than most. Satisfying light body, perhaps a bit too tart, though we’re mostly talking fruit acids.

TAR (2490) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Rusty orange. Noisy, jagged-edged bubbles quickly fade. Sweet plum jelly and beet sugar waft from the glass. Lesser notes of cedar and toasted dough. Prickly and fuzzy carbonation. Somewhat airy, initially. Ample toffee malt richness accompanies toasted-bread flavored malt dust which buoys the body. Quite clean, but oddly fruity at the same time, which is backed by a swift hop counterpunch that restores a sense of balance. Fruity and appetizingly dry, but understated, finish of toasty malts kissed with black licorice and woody roast accents. What few malt notes remain untainted by the fruitiness/acidity and fuzzy carbonation, are simply superb. Lovely aroma as it warms, though (particularly the earthy Munich). A few minor adjustments and this would be beyond lovely.

Bready malt aroma is clean, pleasant and appealing. Clear brown body is topped by shy, off-white head. Bread dough and clean malt flavours with fair finishing bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation. A pleasant way to kick-off RBSG’05.

Medium to dark amber in color, clear, beige head. Malty with a bit of tobacco, some bread, light fruit; mild, earthy hops. Medium bodied, slightly dry. Decent dunkel.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours copper and mostly clear. Short off white head. Cola, toasted brown bread. Brown sugar, earth and minerals. Really clean. Sweet herbs and caramel. Dulls out in the fruity finish. Tastey and refreshing.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Dark gold lager with average bubbly head. Aroma of full sweet malt. On fruitier side. Slightly alcoholic, some light roast and sweeter malt.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
RBSG 2005. Amber brown body, smallish white head. (3+) Sweet malt and caramel aroma is quite nice. Flavour is similar to the aroma, with malt and caramel and mild toasty notes. While pleasant, it is less robust than hoped for from the aroma. Average palate. Quaffable and servicable, but lacking complexity.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Sampled at the RBSG ‘05 bottle tasting courtesy of Dickinsonbeer: Pours a dark copper amber with a lightly-lacing light tan head. Aroma is nicely malty and bready wit good German lager characteristics. Body has a pleasant, mild sweetness with good hop balance and drinkability. An enjoyable brew.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Sample from bottle at RBSG Montreal. Darkish, thick amber body, light retained head...loads of caramel, light vanilla, smelly grasses in the nose...light doughy body, fairly full at first fading to somewhat watery and thin at the finish, lightly smoky...ehh, bit of a disappointment from Victory.
