Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Tap at Armsby Abbey

Big fluffy head fades slowly with lots lacing over mostly clear amber orange reddish colored beer.

Nose has reddish sweet malts, almost syrupy, pale malts, light lager yeast fruit, light fruity and touch earthy herbal hops.

Taste has toasty reddish semi sweet malts, amber flavors, hint of honey, some light lager fruits, nice maltiness, then some light bitter fruity and touch earthy herbal hops. Finishes a bit of sticky syrupy caramel malts, amber malts, and light hops. Actually getting very slight amount of diacetyl the more I taste it. It never gets very big but it's there.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, Light diacetyl, a bit under attenuated, not bad otherwise.
