COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mild dark lager with a distinct character, and closely resembles the lager handcrafted by the German brewmeisters at the original Roslyn Brewery one hundred years ago. We use our own recipe of Roslyn water, fresh from the Cascade Mountains, four types of malted barley and three hop varieties to produce this smooth lager.

kerenmk (4572) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for this beer! Dark brown with beige head. Malt and caramel and some raisins aroma. Slightly smoky, bitter and a little dry in the mouth. Medium body, long, bitter and malty finish.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is toasty and fairly bready. Taste is really quite toasty, but has a nice bit of crispness to it. Decent, but nothing special.

IndianaRed (4091) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle Pours a very dense, dark brown. Rather thin coarse dark tan head that quickly recedes but maintains a thin cramy ring. Spotty lacing. Woody, smokey aroma. Lots of chocolaty light roasted notes as well. Flavor is heavy on the toasted malts, cocolate and grassy bitter componant. Slightly bitter astringent trailer. A lager with some backbone. Interesting, but one is enough.

BillKismet (3949) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Black--amber hued beer with creamy, slightly browned head. The aroma improved markedly as this chilled beer warmed. Rounded roasted malting prevailed in smell and taste, as the beer finished with a coffee note. This divine offering has some robustnessp to the body, but is crisp in finish like a lager. A beer more people should try on their palates.

Pours a deep brown with a frothy off white head that adds a little creamy texture to your early sips. It actually sticks around for a while. Flavor has some nice toasty grain aspects to it and a candi sugar sweetness that is pleasant. A step up from a straight lager to add a little more depth and complexity to your drink. Faint grass and herb aromas. Finish is much the same from that hop profile. Solid sessionable beer.

andrewje41 (3376) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2015
22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a near black color with a fading head. Nice toasty malt aroma. Toasty, nutty malt flavor, and quite nice. Almost a little towards the finish as well. Easy drinking dark lager, and a unique beer for me. Enjoyable.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Bottle from someone I forget who. Smells a lot like a pumpkin beer, or just pumpkin pie spice, kind of odd, but not too bad. Sweet a chewy flavor, easily drinkable, cookie, veggies, perhaps a bit flawed, but fairly nice.

madvike (3225) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours with a creamy tan head on a dark cola body. Dark bready malt on the nose, with light yeast, baking spices, and a pleasant blend of nuttiness and milkiness. Taste is pumpernickel bread--pretty dry with a hint of brown sugar and a pretty milky finish. There’s a sharpness in there too--not sure if that’s the hops or a little roasted malt. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Didn’t know what to expect, as I know little about this style, but I was pleasantly surprised.
