COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delightful alternative to mainstream American lagers; our flagship beer, Black Star Golden Lager is a full bodied traditional American beer. Our unique double hopping process gives this beer a pronounced hop aroma and a crisp refreshing finish.

(can - 24 oz) Clear gold with the standard fizzy beer head. Slightly sweet with a mild corn and metallic grassy finish. Tasted good in the warm Nevada weather.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for this one. Cheers, Dave! Pours a clear gold with a slight orange tint. Nose is grain, lager, lemon, and light hops. Flavor is malt, lager, mild earthy hops. Medium in body, but not a lot going on.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2012
can from az wine 4/2/12 clear golden yellow with a clingy white head. aromas of pale malt, metal, straw, sweaty lager notes...something candy-like but not fruity which i can’t place?? flavor is the same along with some cooked canned peachiness. crisp, clean, highly quaffable...not much different than the big boy macros. actually, quite yummy when left in the freezer to get a bit slushy. 6/3/6/3/13

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Clear golden pour with a medium thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and faint hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of cereal malt, mild hops and a bit of corn. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Nothing memorable overall.

Color:Pale yellow Aroma:Light, grain Body:Light, grain, not much hoop flavors, some skunkyness Finnish:Dry and short Over-all/Mouth-feel:No fizzy carbonation like in many macro breweries, light mouth-feel. The label is misleading by indicating some hop flavors beer but the is not the case.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle, pours a bright yellow, aroma is quite hoppy and the flavour is indeed very crisp. The hops in the beer a light but noticable and the finish is lightly bittered, good offering

Pale blonde with vigorous carbonation feeding thin, airy bleached head.Crisp hopped nose, hints of grass and cardboard.Clean, but weak body. Not much in the way of flavor. Bitter grassiness and watered down grains.

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Pint at the brewery pub. Apres ski happy hour pitchers are only $5. Double hopped lager. Not double an amount of hops but hops added twice. Drinkable in a pitcher and TV sports kind of way. Grainy with some noticeable hops. Better than macros and maybe a gateway beer for skiers to move to the more interesting tap handles.

BelgianBeerGal (3191) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2012
NV Whole Foods bottle. Stupid pale lager. I fell victim to not reading the label details...I was hoping for something different. Oh well, another MT beer. Although the label says "double hopped", not sure I tasted exactly twice the hops. =] It honestly was better than your typical macro, pale lager.
