2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is dusty and metallic with malt and hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not a very good drink.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow with a moderate white head. Lots of effervescence, and a scent of lemon. Has a pretty bland mouthfeel / taste. Malty notes, and pretty bland. Not offensive...just....there.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pale gold with a thin, soapy, white head that has decent retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is grass, spice, hay, toast, bready yeast and cereal grain. Flavor is mostly a sort of sweet breadiness up front with some toast coming in toward the finish along with the spicy, planty hops. Palate is thin throughout, starts a little oily and finishes off dry with a moderate strength, sharp carbonation. It’s odd, the hops don’t really come in until near the finish, but fade very quick and the beer finishes pretty clean, despite starting sweet and finishing hoppy (relative to the style in both cases), I would imagine this could appeal to many BMC drinkers. Seems more like a premium lager, as is is pretty well hopped and fairly malty, though it may not be all malt.

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 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Slightly to moderately hazy golden body with a tall and dense white head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: The smell is of corn and malt sweetness, hints of florallnes, but overall like a poor unfinished homebrew.
Taste: Mildly sweet, tastes underattenuated and very poor quality homebrew like. Malts are prominent, but that’s not saying there’s a lot of flavor in it. There are no flaws but this is pretty bad.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated. Not crisp at all.
Overall: I am sorry dudes, but I can’t find a redeeming quality in this. If I spent $11 on a six pack of this I’d be very pissed.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pee yellow color, thin bubbly head, very little lacing around the glass, grassy aroma with a hint of stale barley, thin & watery body, very light, sour aftertaste, not a good lager by any stretch of the imagination

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fresh bottle. Pale yellow with initial white fizzy head. Gazzy overcarbonated, with metallic in aftertaste. The lagerish taste is overwhelmed by the process, much like a macro.

Genuinely unpleasant, this tastes like an adjunct-heavy pale ale rather than a pale lager; predominant flavor of sandpaper, little else. Am hoping for better with this brewer

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours light golden with little to no head. Aromas of grain, old socks, and light floral notes. The flavor is much of the same but with a odd finish. Ehhhh not feeling this at all.....here ya go drain!
