Lakewood is more than a place. It's a state of mind. Old blends with new. Traditions hook up with fresh ideas. It's the same with our Lakewood Lager. We've taken old world Vienna-Style lager and reintroduced it to beer lovers. Subtle caramel aromas, a coppery pour and a light malty sweetness paired with noble hop bitterness set this beer apart. In with the old, in with the new.

Tap at Jack Mac's.

The beer pours an orange-copper color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some biscuit and bread notes, as well as some toffee and a bit of sugar. The flavor is also very malty. There is good toffee and caramel in the flavor, as well as some sweet biscuit malt. There is also a hint of grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a crystal clear copper color with a stiff, off-white head. Nice retention and some decent lacing. Honestly, you really cant ask for more on the appearance with the brilliant clarity and dense foam.

Nose has some sulfurous lager yeast, burnt toast and toffee. Im not really getting any hops in here. Smells ok, but I am not a huge fan of overly toasty brews.

Taste has alot of the toast but it is balanced by a sweet doughy caramel. Hops are still pretty non-existent but there is a light drying bitterness on the finish, a little leafy even. Its a fairly good lager, one I would be happy to order on tap at a restaurant, but it really doesnt do a whole lot to distinguish itself from the pack of vienna lagers. If I had the choice Id rather grab a Penn pilsner, Firebrick or Elliot Ness.

A: Pours a clear reddish/orange color. A pillowing white head rises, and eventually recedes to a ring. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: I get kind of a sulfur, DMS aroma up front. Quickly followed by toasted malts, and cereal grains. A bit of grassy hops in the finish.
T: Sweeter than I was expecting. Caramel malts followed by toasted and cereal grains. Well balanced with a touch of grassy hops in the finish.
M/D: A light to medium body. A bit on the watery side for me. I am wanting a little bit more crisp bite from the carbonation, and I am not getting it. Easy to drink and fairly enjoyable. I will be happy to finish the six pack.

A good lager for the most part. Not among the better lagers available from Texas breweries, but still very enjoyable. One of my favorite styles, and I am glad to grab a sixer.

This is a very clear light amber colored beer, with a head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma is very good--bready, a little toasty, just a touch of caramel and graininess. The taste is not as impressive though--too much crystal malt caramel. This is on the bitter end of the scale of viennas, but no real hop flavor is present. Decent body, full but not heavy.

Adequate, but not the best beer from their lineup.

Clear dark amber pour with a dense off-white one-finger head. Somewhat sweet aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. There's a bit of grassy hops in the initial taste balanced with bread, caramel and grain malt flavors. Finishes dry with a mild lingering grassy bitterness.
