Tap version -- Deep brownish amber with ample off-white head this brew was ultra malty with a strong caramel presence. Complex maltiness throughout with well balanced hop character. Smooth mouthfeel with malty, but not overly sweet finish. Knocked the Troegenator Double Bock out of my favorite slot for this brewery. Excellent! Amber1 (32) - USA - MAY 23, 2002
my dad always brings me a case of Troegs when his visits. this lager is very malty, amber hued and slightly sweet finish. very well balanced lager from such a small brewery. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Aroma is slight but very inviting. Nice caramel and munich malts with a perfect ballance of Euro hops. Not as hoppy as Brooklyn’s lager, which makes Troegs a little easier to drink for a lager. Very smooth and drinkable. No metallic or harsh tastse whatsoever. An excellent lager overall. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Nice medium dark amber almost copper color,small white head that left a bit of lace behind.Malty,toffee aroma,and fairly sweet.The taste is malty and toffeish with just a nice hint of hops,nicely sweet and all around very good.This is a wonderful brew,and well worth getting a few again if you can find it.Thanks go out to Britt(Urbnhautebourg)for this fine brew.

Copper color with a fluffy, off-white head. Malty sweet aroma, nothing fancy. Medium mouth, smooth roasted malt flavor, a bit of grainyness. Finishes lightly bitter. Very nice.

Clear light copper. Sticky, vanilla head. Speckled carbonation. Toasty sweet malt aroma with sharp, spicy German hops. Boldly crisp, clean and fresh. Rich Munich maltiness and spicy Hallertau hops. Delicate sweetness. Strange but good malt aftertaste. Medium light body. Finishes full and spicy with cottony malts. Nice Marzen. Cobra (1100) - - MAY 4, 2003
This is one great brew from Tröegs. It pours out a deep, reddish orange color, with a healthy head on top. The head lasts until
the bottom of the glass. It has just the right amount of hops, not too sweet, not too bitter. The malty aromas & flavors are just
delicious. It goes down smoothly, with a residual sweetness on the palate. The only complaint I have about this beer is it's hard
to find in my area. Other than that, I think it's a winner. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Copper-gold, very long-lasting head for a lager. Nose is sweet, slightly hoppy. Initial flavor is tart and quite cidery. Quite sweet. Finishes slightly hoppy, nice bitterness. A very enjoyable lager. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 Update: You know, I think they changed the recipe on this one. It used to taste something like Boulevard Bob's 47. Now it has a peat smoke flavor to it. Quite different than it was, but still very enjoyable.
Old: The bottle says 'Bavarian style', but don"t think Bavarian Helles. This seems more in the kellerbier tradition, like St. Georgenbrau. And though American, does not have the hop presence of amber lagers like Brooklyn. Malt is the story here. Full, rich malt with roasted grain flavors, not unlike that found in better Octoberfest brews. Oakes must have had a bad sample. Very nice indeed. rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2004
