Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Drank for the first time at BJ's in Florida. This has become one of my go-to beers.

Picked 1 up as a trial.
Nice amber color, unfortunate you don't taste with your eyes.
First sip tasted remarkably "American". Like Bud wished it could or should be. Red cup worthy. Ok for a picnic, lawn mowing, though overpriced.

A good beer. Nothing super complex. Caramel toasted and some herbal notes . A little hop bitterness to offset caramel sweetness. A nice dinner beer.

The neckerchief of the beer states: "THIS BEER WILL REMAIN BREWERY FRESH 180 DAYS AFTER THE BOTTLED ON DATE" "BOTTLED ON 16NOV16 BG80"

So evidently this isn't "brewery fresh" but it just started appearing on shelves in various stores where I live.

Appearance: The body of the beer is a nice orange and brown color with hints of red. It has very good clarity. The head is short and off-white with a bit of a cream color. It has decent enough retention and it leave some nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma: There is a nice light caramel scent to the beer.

Taste: Caramel flavor comes through at first with a sweet touch. It carries through to the middle of the beer where it is met with a light hand of herbal hops. It finishes with a very light bitter herbal flavor and more of that sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has nice bitterness and it is a pretty clean beer. It is medium-light bodied with a wet finish.

Overall: It's a decent and enjoyable lager. It doesn't particularly stand out for any reason but it fits right in with the other readily available sweet malty lagers.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; produced on 16 July 2017.
A: Pours a crystal clear, orange-amber color with a one inch, off-white to light tan head initially, modest retention and spotty lacing.
S: Bouquet of floral esters with toasty and pitted fruit greater than citrus aromas predominating. Perhaps a bit tart up front.
T: Dry. More citrus than pitted fruit initially with light caramel throughout remainder of consumption. Bitterness not evident initially, but works its way in slowly and balances nicely.
M: Light-medium to medium bodied. Solid carbonation. Crisp and refreshing finish.
O: A solid, refreshing take on the style. I enjoyed it and will do with another.

Amber hued with a half inch of creamy light beige on top. Moderate lacing. Excellent clarity. I'm getting a bit of caramel in the nose. I get that some flavor of caramel, but i'm struggling to detect anything else. The mouth is light and crisp.

Good brew but not a standout. Bubbly, frothy head. The toasted flavors are pretty mild. Crisp and bready but balanced well with a mild hops profile.

Deep amber color with a foamy creamy head, mild aroma, pleasant mild taste. A good beer - not great but not bad.

I bought a six-pack of this beer, on a whim. I've no reservations about enjoying the remaining 5, but this won't become my go to beer.

Picked up a 6 pack for $9.49 at a Kroger.
Appearance: Bright copper color, with exceptional clarity. Pours a slightly off white Inviting frothy head, that has decent retention.

Aroma: Sweetness and light toasted grains, has some faint, distant hops. Nothing too prominent.

Taste: Get caramel representing the sweetness aroma, balanced with toasted malts.

It was good not worthy the $10.00 a 6 pack.
