Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mschofield on 08-07-2011

Navigating the labyrinth of brewery licensing and state regulations isn't easy. When we finally got the green light, we also got inspired with the perfect name for our pilot brew. Red Tape Lager has a full malty flavor typical of Bavarian dark lagers. It's brewed with 100% Dark Munich Malt. Additions of Glacier hops for bittering and noble German hops for aroma strike a balance between American and European flavors.

Long lasting, thick frothy head. The liquid is decidedly amber--very light color for a dunkel. Surprisingly little lace given the head.

Nice crystal and chocolate malt aromas. Light hop in the background.

Spritzy with a medium body. Tastes darker than the color would suggest. A touch of sourness in the swallow. Very brief aftertaste.
