Notes: Our flagship and most popular brew, Toasted Lager is the best American amber Lager you’ll ever taste.

To back up that claim, we use six different grains to perfect a balanced flavor of malt and hops, and a special proprietary lager yeast to give Toasted Lager an exceptional, long-lasting smooth finish that’s meant to be enjoyed year-round. Pairs perfectly with fresh seafood...or any food for that matter.

Pours a light copper color with a one-finger head into my glass. The name "toasted lager" makes me wonder if it tastes "toasted"?

Sweet and dry with a good essence of bread-y malt. There's a good hop presence too.

Dry with toasted malt and grassy hops upfront. Very refreshing. Crisp.

Lingering toasted malt and grassy hops make up the mouthfeel here.

Very nice example of the style. Takes a bit of getting used to, especially if you're expecting something lighter/grainier.

A great, fresh beer to enjoy on a warm summer day. Has much more taste than your standard macro lager and is easy to drink. Enjoying now out of a 12oz bottle but tastes great at the Mets Citi Field out of a 160z can. Highly recommended if you want great tasting craft beer but don't like ales or IPAs.

4.17/5  rDev +17.8%

New York State, boyeee! The home of the Yankees, Mets, and obscene gun laws.

Appearance (3.75) : Beige three fingered head, pillowy and large. The body is a toasted pecan color. 50% opacity.

Aroma (4.25) : Mild hop, toasted pecan, rolled oatmeal, milled grain, faint hint of maple sap. It actually reminds me of Minnesota. A great bouquet, medium strength, I'm giving this a 4.25.

Taste (4.25) : Wow. Can I say it again? Wow. This lager is fantastic. The slightly sour malt and hop hit unmistakeably at first, but what follows is a slight dark toast/roasted pecan flavor that sets in like a delicacy. It's like I ate a miniature pecan pie or something. Some faint hop left drying on the palate, but the pecan and nut flavors overwhelm it making it a nice finish.

Extra note : there's a slight antiseptic/paint flavor to it floating in there somewhere, I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps it's just the alcohol fermentation of the yeast. The more I drink it, it disappears (so does the beer, unfortunately).

Mouthfeel (4) : Zippy, then creamy, then roasted and dry. Light bodied within spec. Better than average for lagers. I'm giving it a 4.

Overall (4.17) : I wish they sold this here. 302BeerGuy traded me this one and so far it's probably the most impressive lager I've tried outside of the midwest area. I really enjoy it, it's a fire-side, late night, cozy lager for sure.

Poured this beer from a cold 12 oz. bottle into a lager glass.

Appearance: Light brown with some tones of copper, good aeration and 1 finger of head.
Aroma: Malts and barley all the way!
Taste: Strong taste of toasted malts (not surprising considering the name of the beer) and some barley. Very light taste of hops in the background.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering bitterness, but nothing to complain about.
Bottom line: Probably won't buy this beer again after I finish this 6-pack...would be willing to try some of their others though.

Situation: As a fan of Fort Collins' Z, I liked the thought of this one out on the deck to cool off the evening...
Glassware: 23 oz. lager
Appearance: a whirlpool (a vortex?) of bubbles swirl up a firey burnt orange bodywith beautiful, thick white head...
Aroma: immediate bread aroma with a tinge of nut and oat--smells hearty and lightly yeasted...
Palate: smooth, slightly warming at the throat... medium-bodied and courteous in its movement down...
Taste: definite ESB nuttiness in this; as in the aroma, a bit nutty and bready; full-flavored and walking a tightrope between sip and savor and swish and slam...
Overall: strengthens its consistency as the glass drains; caramel comes to the fore, an interesting flavor to a lager... holds its own against the cigar I am smoking...one suggestion: flaunting medals on the label is a bit of shameless self-promotion, no? Let the beer do the talking, as this lager is capable of...

From 07/23/11 notes. Big thanks to SpeedwayJim for sending this one; thanks Jim! Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip.

a - Pours a dark amber color with one finger of white head and moderate to high carbonation. Some light lacing on the glass and pretty good retention.

s - Smells of toasted malts, caramel malts, anf light nuts.

t - Tastes of caramel malts, nuts, bready malts, and some light fruit. A definite step up from the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy, and very easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty decent lager. Lots of toasted and nuts to it, would have it again.

A smooth beer that balances flavor, malt, hops and grains. Creating a full bodied beer that amazingly feels light.

Taste Rating in Words: Imagine a man relaxing on the log roll, he doesn't have to try and the log is spinning like a tire on the highway, take all this and roll it into a beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Slightly cloudy deep golden with a thick white head

S: Slight hint of woodiness, nice barley notes. Descent hop aroma as well

T: Very prevelant hop-fruitiness, some bread notes, mild bitterness. Also, mild carbonation and a very short finish make this extremely drinkable

M: Light

O: Honestly, this is just okay. I was hoping for a fuller style of lager with this beer, but it just didn't meet that expectation. I would, however, recommend this brew for a newcomer to the beer world, as it is highly drinkable

A very solid lager offering, both winter and summer drinking. Easy-drinking and very little linger. The flavor is well-balanced and there is little to no hop bite. Also, very easy to find on tap or in a bodega in New York City. One of those beers you can drink one or ten!!

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This nice little lager pours a
medium brown tinged amber with a nice head of white foam that
subsides to a thick ring, thin light clumping pool, and shows subtle lacing.
Nose of caramel malts and light herbal hops. Flavors surpass the nose with
a lightly toasted caramel malt with nicely balanced herbal hops that are a
touch reminiscent of an ESB but with lager notes and subtle light toasted bread.
Nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium light carbonation, and a lightly
sweet and malty finish. Of note the toasted elements come out more with
warmth.

Overall, a VERY nice brew that would be great at the next BBQ.

Cheers to Randy from work for this one!
