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.

3.21/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with a purchase before date on the side of the label.

Appearance: Inviting fresh looking head, bubbly and frothy just the way I like it. Bright copper colour, with a brilliant clarity.

Smell: Clean with a meek aroma. Light toasted grain, hint of sweetness and bread with a very faint hop aroma.

Taste: Clean and crisp with a moderate body, toasted flavours are a bit dull but still add to the palate. Graininess is laid back with a quick flash of sweetness then the hops roll in with a balanced bitterness and faint flashes of oily and herbal flavour. Grain flavours border on husky in the drying finish and become a tad bothersome.

Notes: A run of the mill amber lager, flavours are placid though sometimes plain is good. Its just and easy drinking brew, nothing special.

White head. Amber color with a slight hop nose. Taste is malt based with a little cardboard in the finish (oxidation). Medium body to the brew. The mouth is quite smooth. nothing awesome.. but nothing bad about it either.Better than the other macro choinces that were in the bar!

A brilliant copper color with a thinnish yet persistent white head. Sampled, several times, out of a growler from the brewery.

Starts with a clean, sharp, toasty malt/citric hop nose with a hint of buttery ester tossed in. Bitter citrus hop on the tongue, with a toasty malt flavor that comes through to keep the rest of your mouth busy. Overall, the hop outdoes the malt (at least as far as my tastebuds went - this was the fourth of six brews/growlers that day) when cold. But as it warms, a toasted caramel flavor emerges that really makes the ol' tastebuds happy.

Nice copper color, beige head, tiny bubbles bust through. Head stayed nicely. Toasted barley smell pleasant and noticable. Taste was rich, toastedness came through, but not overbearing. Decent crisp finish, no slimy bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, easy going down. Better than average American Lager, IMO. Nicely done, worth giving it a try.

I expected more out of this, but it still wasnt bad. The toasted flavor was quite evident, and the aftertaste was somewhat bitter. I was still able to finish a few bottles.

This beer pours a clear light copper with a medium white head. The same clear, gel-like particles that I just saw suspended in my Blue Point Summer Ale are present in this beer also. Pretty subdued notes of malt and hops on the nose. The flame-roasted quality is fairly evident in this brew. It is nice. This is a pretty good tasting lager. Many malts were employed to brew this and they blend together nicely. Very clean tasting. A bit of a spritzy mouthfeel, but it isn't bad. Very little hop presence. Decent brew here.

This is a wonderful beer to drink with food. Its' smooth and crisp taste makes this one of the lightest beers that has taste. I bought a brown jug of this beer at a local beer store and it was really fresh and enjoyable.
