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.

$4 bottle from Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. Drank straight from the bottle, so I'll skip the appearance.

Toasted lager this is... on the nose and in the taste buds, there's a really nice toast and caramel flavor that leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste. The carbonation is fairly high, which makes this really drinkable with its low bitterness. I tend to find lagers a bit boring for the most part, but something as simple as making the beer taste a bit toast-like worked very well. I'd have another one. It's a good beer to drink after you've had a few, but are still looking for something with a little bit of flavor.

Appearance: pretty clear amber/ red. Finger of white head that settles to reasonable lacing.

Smell: faint toasted smell. Bit of malt. Smooth yeastiness.

Taste: true to its name, nice toasted flavor. With bread and some sweetness and some apples in the background.

Mouthfeel. Medium body. Pretty strong carbonation. Slightly creamy.

Overall. Was pleasantly surprised. Wouldn't buy it. But would order it at a bar against
Most major beers I can think of

I'm not much of a bottle guy but I didn't have many choices when I tried this one.

I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't had anything from blue point prior to this but I will try some now after enjoying this.

Amber colored light lager.

Little hop and bready malt tastes which was a good mixture for me.

Overall a solid lager

Clear amber pour with a weak quickly fading head and ok lacing but nothing special.

Aroma is malt forward with some notes of caramel and baked bread. A light vanilla note is at the end as well.

Taste is the beers downfall, it has some slight malt giving way to intense water on the palate with a short finish.

Light bubbles with a light body.

This beer does not have much going for it.

Clean amber color with a thin head with short retention.
Light aroma of honey and papaya.
Flavor of grains, oxidized apples, slightly toasted malts, spices and floral hops.
Light to watery body with moderate carbonation.
Very interesting that it behaves a bit like Ale rather than a Lager. But, it would be nicer if it had more body.
