Toasted Lager pours a copper color, with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet, with hints of metal. Flavor is full crisp, sweet with a nice roasted malt flavor. Good body and feel. Overall, a very full flavored, sweeter lager.

I had this on draught in a hotel bar. Pint pour. It's dark amber in color with ruby hues, and a thin, ecru-colored head and lacing. There's not much on the nose: mostly some sweet malt with caramel notes. The first thing I taste is a sweet malt with toast and a hint of caramel. It finishes with a touch of mild hops that leaves a slight bitterness. It's medium-bodied and moderately carbonated, and truly sessionable with its 5.5% ABV. I ordered it because I hadn't tried it before. It's okay but too sweet for my taste.

man, i used to like this beer as an underage kid, but now, its pretty weak. i was surprised for one to find it on a united flight the other day, and also surprised that i disliked it so much after some pretty nostalgic times drinking this one back in the day. i imagine the recipe has changed a little over time, but also i know palates have evolved far beyond this sort of thing, so there could be pressure on both ends of this one. i wanted to like it, but found myself almost forcing it down at the end. its well carbonated and frothy, so that part is dialed in, and the mouthfeel isnt bad, nutty malty sweetness and some body, but pushed on by lively carbonation, i dont really have a critique there. the one dimensional flavor is what trips me up, its this single thread of nutty red malt, caramelized and a touch of honey sweetness to it, and then the bready lager yeast that doesnt taste to me like it has had quite enough time to do its thing, thats all i really taste, those two elements, its like so simple that its boring rather than streamlined and elegant as a positive. amber ale characteristics as much as amber lager, and i do get the toasted aspect, but its metallic a bit at times which breaks down what i am supposed to like about it. it almost just tastes cheap to me now. i had higher hopes for revisiting this old classic...
