Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

I tried this beer at Bob's Steak and Chop House in downtown Dallas at the Omni hotel. It poured a clear amber with thin white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had sweet malt and grain with hop accents. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a good beer.

Copper in color with a thin white head

Smells of toasted bread, dried fruit, and maybe a tad metallic.

Starts off fairly sweet with slight caramel flavor. Slight bitterness comes out on the end.

Mouthfeel is a bit dry and with light carbonation.

Really well balanced beer. I like that it's malty but not too sweet. I got this as part of a subscription to Craft Beer Club. Being from Boston, I was interested in trying this since Boston Lager is also a Vienna lager. Boston Lager seems bolder, but the subtly of this beer makes it a little easier to drink and more nuanced.

A deep copper lager with a nice lasting head. This is a very flavorful Vienna. It is sweet, bitter and even sour with a lingering pepper taste that reminds me of a rye brew. There is an initial sharpness that works well to balance the full, roasted malt body.

Pours to a thin but lasting of white head and orange copper color. Toasty, malty caramel aroma. Flavor is Strong on malt, especially caramelized malts. Nice Hop bitterness to balance but sweet wins out by a nose. Mouthfeel is kind of heavy for the OG and style with within tolerance. A tasty, solid Metroplex local brew that tastes and feels bigger than its abv suggests. To me it drinks more like an American Amber Ale or am O-Fest than a Vienna lager.
