COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two centuries ago, on the site of what is now the Fort George Brewery block, fur magnate John Jacob Astor’s expedition boldly built a trading post they called Astoria—the first US settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. Today, we’re proud to craft the Official Bicentennial Beer of Astoria. Many West Coast brewers in the 19th century had no ice, so they improvised an effervescent beer by brewing lager yeasts at higher-than-normal temperatures. Described as a “refreshing drink, much consumed by the laboring classes,” it’s the inspiration for 1811 lager.

More flavorful than most modern lagers, and fermented at warmer temperatures, 1811 is lovingly concocted from 2 row malted barley and cracked maize; corn was a popular beer ingredient in pre-Prohibition days. 1811’s hop character gives it a distinctive Northwest style worthy of Astoria’s 200-year history.

a little more oomph on the senses than your typical domestic lager. very smooth. nice array of hops to give the beer some backbone and keeps it from being dull. light body.

I didn’t mind this one. It’s on the sweeter end of most lagers I’ve had, but still pretty drinkable. A little fruit in there, but the requisite standard lager notes dominate.

Draft at Pit Stop in Burien. I seem to have an appley, cidery, fruity mess. Weird. I’d pit this in a cider blind tasting.

Can. Pours golden with thick off white head. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Taste is sweet and sourish with a bitter corn chip like aftertaste. Not bad. Pilsners aren’t really my thing.

Capa (3250) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Clear gold with a white head. Strong hop notes, spicy, earthy, light ready malts. Very crisp, lingering hop finish. Full of awesome lager and hoppy goodness.

ClarkVV (6636) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draught at Oddfellows, 11/3/15.
Clear, with just a touch of glassiness. Pale blonde with some light wax tints and a moderate amount of white head with average retention.
Minerals, light herbal notes (chamomile, white pepper) from the hops and a very present corn-honey note from the malt. No alcohol or flaw.
A bit sweeter and lightly fruity, with some dry, baked bread notes from the malt, a touch of sweet corn and light vanilla. Sounds worse than it actually is, and I love corn in my beer, but I’ve had far better Pre-Pro lagers. Just needs a little more crispness on the finish, some more dryness overall and probably a better hop aroma. Moderate carbonation, watery texture, no alcohol or flaws.

Cannery Row Beer Club tries the first canned beer of the night. This beer tastes great for being a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at brewery. Pours gold with white head. Aroma is mild Pilsner malt and hops. Flavor is more led malt and hop bitterness. Easy drinker.

Mild with some bitterness and a hint of crisp celery. Smooth but overall not that good.

3.3
mjg74 (3092) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Canned from Safeway. Lightly hazy straw in color. Nose is somewhat grainy with a touch of grassy hops. A hint of sweetness as well. Somewhat creamy grain flavors up front. Nice light hoppy flavors. Good clean lager. Nice and flavorful.
