416. Bull Jagger Dirigo Crimson Lager

Bull Jagger Crimson LagerWith the recent news of Bull Jagger’s closing I thought I better get reviews up of their beers before they are gone for good. The Dirigo Crimson Lager is their Oktoberfest style beer.

This beer is a nice red color with an off white single finger head. Aroma is minimal but there is some sweet caramel malt but not much else. Taste is a solid marzen style lager true to style but not overly exciting. Being only 5% and a fairly small bottle this beer disappeared quickly and did not leave a lot to remember.

141. Bull Jagger Portland Lager

I have been drinking a lot of heavy beer over the past month or so with high alcohol content and very dark so this was a nice change. This is the only beer by a new brewery in Portland, Bull Jagger and it is certainly a good start. The beer pours a beautiful bright gold color with a nice 2 finger head. Aroma has some yeast, light malts, kind of grassy. Taste was fairly complex for a lager and very drinkable. This is a good first offering for a new brewery and something most beer drinkers would enjoy. The bottle is very classy and looks great with my other bombers. I am looking forward to future offerings from Bull Jagger.
Pros: Easy to drink, fairly complex for the style
