Rivertowne Brewing Co. RT Lager

I am a slight fan of the Lager beer style but not all lagers are equal. Rivertowne Brewing Co. in export Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburg, brews RT Lager, 5.5% ABV. This is more of an Amber Lager brewed with seven different malt varieties with additions of Cascade hops. RT Lager pours a copper orange color with a bright one finger white head that is fizzy and fades into a terrible looking white ring. The aroma is sweet with malt in a bad candy way. The taste of RT Lager is a bit overwhelmingly sweet with malt flavor that overshadow the hops. There is a cloying taste of something metallic and sweet that sticks to the tip of your tongue after each sip. The mouth feel is high on the medium side with a manufactured finish that is pretty much the same on RT Lagers finish. I found RT Lager to get worse as you get to the bottom of the beer. I give Rivertowne Brewing Co. RT Lager an F. It is a fake sweetness that is too thick and too much flavor that takes all goodness out of this beer. It reminded me bit like medicine. I don’t think anyone should try this beer, and I will be doing the same. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
