2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unfortunately this was a low point of the Stoudt’s Microbrew Fest for me. I found this to be a sour lager with really no discernable flavors other than a boring wimpy malt and sour aftertaste. It is not an appalling beer just not exciting either. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth but with out any taste what good is mouthfeel. I’ll give this beer another shot but I poured out my last swig to replace it with something that had more substance.
Hope this is helpful.

drank last day of August out east on LI, 12 fl oz brown bottle in a beer koozie, slight sample of aroma, definitely deserves to be poured into a pint glass if available, lingers on your palette, solid lager

This is an easy to drink, well balanced, clean and smooth lager. More malty than bitter, the crisp carbonation keeps everything enjoyable. Perfect for a few on a warm summer’s day. Gentlemen, start your (lawnmower) engines!

Pours light yellow, some hops on the nose. No real lacing to speak of. Taste is mildly hoppy, smooth, light, easy to drink. Some malt. Not too much presence, but enjoyable. Adequate carbonation.

small white head on a golden yellow beer. LIght grain aroma, some malt flavor met by bitterness, but neither are very strong. Light body, finishes on the sweet end

After touring the brewery, I had to try this beer. Real nice. Easy to drink lager. Was a big hit at my Superbowl party. I got a 1/6 keg of it and enjoying every glass.

Usually a fan of both lagers and Cricket Hill, wasn’t a huge fan of this one. A bit on the too hoppy side for a lager. Good golden color.
This one just didn’t do it for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light gold with virtually no head. Aroma is light but has hints of bready malt and citrus hops. The taste is grassy hops with a balanced bitterness and a touch of biscuit. Very light bodied but doesn’t taste watered down and is easy to drink. The carbonation brings out the hops nicely. At only 4% you could drink this all day...literally.

12oz. Smells like corn and cascade. The cascade aroma is crisp and not too fruity, that comes when you drink it. This beer is thicker then feels right, it has a nice balance of flavors but it’s not as easy drinking as the flavor would suggest. I should mention the stunning clarity, I bet you can see a penny at the bottom of a bucket filled with this beer, it’s beautiful to look at. Yay beer!
