3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Lucky Baldwins. Clear golden. Excellent white webby lacing. Nose is moderate lemon and sweet orange. Taste is hoppy, some sugar, decent creamed corn DMS intentional character giving some body density balanced by hefty grassy hops verging on Czech or German minerality. Very good for what it is, successful.

Craftsman lager is a fantastic beer with a crisp taste and a fantastic finish. If you enjoy this beer, try out the craftsman poppy fields. Another great beer

Pint at some Studio City, CA restaurant. Poured a pretty clear yellow color, foamy white head. Aroma was light malts, adjuncts, crisp hops. Flavor was light malts, crisp hops. Drinkable in a pinch, Iíd rather reach for something else. Maybe when itís 100 degrees in LA, Iíd grab this one over one of the more fizzy yellow brews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fatherís Office, Santa Monica. Compared favorably with the Stillwater pre-Pro lager. Vibrant golden-orange pour with a lively, fluffy head and plenty of brimming carbonation. Nose was very inviting with plenty of bitter hops, a touch of must and tart fruit. Bracing flavors, quite sharp and grassy, just a bit of funk peeking out from the herbal deliciousness.

On tap at the spice table. It's a lager, ok? But it's a good one, and it goes completely perfectly with the food at this spice-centric restaurant. Nice beer.

I finally got to try this local lager and it was exactly what I thought it would be - a lager. Iím in no rush for another, but my dad loved his.
Iím a big fan of Craftsmanís other beers, this one just isnít getting me excited.
