Lager Reviews

Damm Brewery Voll-Damm Doble Malta Märzen
93 points
Bright amber color. Aromas and flavors of caramel creme, roasted coffee, burnt sugar, sesame seeds in honey, herb scone, and toasted baguette with a vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, complex, medium-long finish with nuances of cacao nib and whipped butter finish. An impeccably balanced and effortlessly drinkable Marzen; highly recommended.
North Coast Brewing Co. Laguna Baja Mexican-Style Dark Lager
90 points
Bright dark copper color. Aromas of vanilla yogurt covered almonds, berry jam, bran muffin, and savory herbs with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a tingling, intriguing, medium-length toasted grains and black tea finish. A dry, very food-friendly lager with a lengthy finish of dark toasty nuts and grains.
DeHop’s Maibock
89 points
Amber color. Aromas of orange oil, roasted squash flatbread, and toasted cashew with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and a polished, relaxed toasted baguette, lemon marmalade, and hints of coffee finish. A bigger-bodied lager with pleasing citrus notes that’s at once refreshing and warming.
DeHop’s Schwarzbier
89 points
Dark mahogany color. Roasted aromas of old fashioned coffee, chocolate genache, roasted pecans, chocolate covered cherries, smoky bacon, and toasty crepes with a velvety, vibrant, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long black toast and espresso finish. A malty black lager with just the right amount of char-roasted flavor; just right.
DeHop’s Brahms Best Vienna Style Lager
87 points
Dark copper color. Sweet aromas of toffee-coated peanuts, amarena cherry, maple, and cinnamon danish with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-length chestnut honey and chocolate wafer finish. An easy-drinking Vienna lager with tasty kisses of sweetness.
