Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

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.

Haven’t had one of these in quite some time, so I thought I’d pick one up and see if I still disliked them. 

Yep, still dislike them.  I figured this would be a solid thirst quencher on a hot summer day, which it was, until the aftertaste kicked in.
 

While I enjoy the slightly toasty aroma this gives off and the crisp, refreshing mouthfeel, there is some underlying off flavors along with some astringent alcohol building as the lager warms.  I feel like this had some serious potential, but the off flavors are the aftertaste is all about, and frankly it isn’t a good one.  Maybe it was an bad batch, or maybe this is how its always been, but either way, I won’t be revisiting this one again anytime soon.
