3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I received a 12oz bottle from a friend in Ohio (thanks, James!). I poured it into the tumbler he sent me.
Appearance: White gold hue that’s nearly opaque, but some carbonation is visible. Forms just a coating of white suds which disappear quickly and leave no lacing.
Smell: Classic lager aroma scent, but with subtle notes of lemonpeel and just a hint of spice.
Taste: This beer threw me for a loop. It looks like a witbier and has some of the same aroma characteristics, but also has the classic lager smell and taste. Columbus Brewing Summer Teeth Lager is technically a kellerbier - a niche style lager that’s either bottle-conditioned or unfiltered judging from the goop in the bottle. Anyway, the beer itself is definitely tastier than your average lager but not as much as an actual witbier or highly-hopped helles bock.
It’s mild in many aspects. Up front is a light, somewhat citrusy lemonpeel and allspice taste, followed by classic lager flavor but without the unbridled graininess. There’s a hint of sweetness in the finish, but it’s washed away clean. There are a lot of subtle flavors to this brew and had they been accentuated it would’ve been a solid, if not great lager. There’s nothing off-putting about it whatsoever, but to me it’s only an okay brew in the end.
Drinkability: Summer themed beers tend to be my least favorites because they opt for drinkability over taste and Columbus Brewing Summer Teeth Lager is a good example of that. I specifically drank it on an unusually hot spring day to replicate the summer feeling. It was crisp and refreshing and the clean finish probably accounted for a lot of that. It went down smooth and at only 5% ABV I could definitely see myself throwing back a few of these at a summer BBQ or picnic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Whitish yellow, soft sudsy white head, little lacing.   Doughy nose, slight grassiness.   Soft sweet grassiness on the tongue.   Very clean and crisp.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft grassy finish.   An unremarkable beer, but clean for what it is.   Probably great session beer for a hot day, or mowing the lawn!

Light wheat, lemon and a bit of orange, and a bit of lager yeast. A little bit of peppery spice comes through as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from jwLgd. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grassy, lightly herbal, light citrus with some pale malts. The flavor is the same; grass, citrus, herbal, bready malts. Another beer that probably tastes better because I just finished mowing the grass.
