IMG_20150617_135547.556We have a pretty obvious love affair with Sawdust City, but can every single beer they make have us falling head over heals?

Lets find out.

This beer is the Sawdust attemt at a German Amber beer. From my understanding it is a lagered ale that must have some slightly roasted malts.

For those who haven’t heard the term, a lagered ale is an ale (meaning a beer made with a top fermenting yeast) that has been cold fermented (or lagered as it is called). This leaves you with a lighter tasting and lighter bodied beer.

Yet again I regret to have to inform you that this beer is NOT available at the LCBO but is instead available at The Beer Store. It is $2.75 a can and sits at 5% ABV.

Appearance: Red and brown. Filtered with offwhite head.
Aroma: Very light but certainly sweet. Can pick up slight nuts and vanilla.
Taste: Super light and easy drinking. Vanilla comes to the forefront with some very softly roasted cereal like malts.
Aftertaste: Dry and crisp.
Overall: A great summer sipper.
