This lager is different than others I’ve had. Sweet corn/caramel taste, big tingle in the back of the throat. Would have liked a better hop balance. Meh

Can. Lightly lactic barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Slight sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Okay - nothing special.

Can - decent size thick head, medium straw color, mildly sweet malt/lager aroma and flavor, mild hops - actually not bad, certainly much more flavorful than your typical American lager

Medium yellow tan pour into shaker. Quarter inch white head that disappeared in 30 seconds. Looks like a darker macro brew. Sour smell similar to a macro brew, slightly spicier, hints of cinnamon/nutmeg. Light body, medium carbonation. Easy to drink, slightly sour on the tongue. Like a macro lager but more complex. Tastes reminiscent of a German style lagers. Woody, more notes of spices like nutmeg and cloves. Truly great alternative to the big 3 pissy pilsners.

Bottle. Grainy malt and apple aroma. Hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Slightly sweet grainy malt, citrus tang, and mild grassy flavor. Light carbonated body.

Received sample 12-oz can from distributor to try. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates to a cream top and minimal lacing. Aroma of lager yeast, bread dough, a hint of floral hops and a touch of honey. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of bread dough, floral hops and some mild lager yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a lingering bread dough aftertaste.

Now why does the Atwater’s Lager beer can design remind me of a 1970s era Stroh’s Bohemian beer can? http://www.taverntrove.com/item.php?ItemId=3736

Pretty close to your typical light lager. A strange green hue to this though, similar to Badass Lager which makes me question Detroit’s water supply.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is honey, vanilla, some green apple, and maybe a touch of mint. Flavor is grain, toast, vanilla, some fruity apple notes, and a spicy light bitter finish.
