Clean, Floral, Sweet, Toasty

Going old world lager here, on the darker side with a clear amber hue. A big focus on the malt and lager cleanliness, overtones of bread, crust, and toasted biscuits. Kiss of oily floral hop of the Goldings variety. Mild fruitiness from the higher-temperature fermentation and residuals from the hops. A sweet beer more or less, a lot of balance but the maltiness leaves a pleasant sweetness on the palate. Clean throughout.

STYLE: Pre-Prohibition Lager | ABV: 5.7% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

Slow spew out the pop top. Pours amber with an orange tinge but not so much foam in the glass.

Mellow with an edge of dankish hops. Flavors are a little murky. Bitter, leafy aftertaste.

Kind of a browned biscuit taste but more like an amber ale. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way.

16oz : mason jar

Hazy, coppery red with a foamy, off white head.

Tasty, though fairly simple grassy, grainy, floral character in both the aroma and taste.

Medium body, fizzy, foamy carbonation.

Nothing complex, but still an enjoyable, well done beer.
