COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Framingham, for Framingham. We’ve been honored and humbled by the tremendous support the community has shown us over the past three years. To celebrate our third anniversary, we’ve brewed a special release in appreciation of all our supporters and the Town of Framingham. We will donate a portion of Framingham Lager proceeds to the Framingham Downtown Renaissance, our partner in giving back to the community. Feel good knowing your money will stay local and benefit this great cause. Framingham Lager is a traditional American style lager brewed to our highest standards. We used 100% high quality, 2-row malt and 100% real hops. Honest ingredients, traditionally brewed.

12 pack of bottles drunk 6/28/14 and onwards
The reason I know the date I had this is because I posted on Facebook, "Early candidate for beer of the Summer." And I’ll maintain that very much so. Sierra Summerfest 2014 wasn’t its best year (certainly wasnt the worst, but still had a lot of resin and breadiness) so this one was an easy go-to. Similar to Jabby Brau in the malt/body department, being very nicely attenuated but still with enough texture to balance the hops. This one is certainly less hoppy than Jabby Brau (and most craft brewed lagers) but still has a light bitterness and some herbal-pepper notes that do just enough to balance but leave a focus on the delicious malt. Not quite creamy, as that would imply too sweet and heavy a texture, but just the exact amount of malt chewiness and depth of flavor (brown bread, baguette, light sourdough). Delicious. And of course appreciated by no one on this damned site. I hate you all.

A light grainy malt aroma. Solid pale yellow but with a slight haze. A quick bubbly white head but doesn’t last long. Taste is slight grain and lemon zestiness in background. Has a light tart finish that is refreshing.

If the macro lagers tasted like this, I’d be more apt to drink them. Crisp, soft carbonation, slightly sweet, corn, wheat, and a hop presence that is nice. Easy drinking, great for drinking multiples.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Yep.... Aroma and flavor are the same.

The flavor is corn, mild sweet grain with a mild grassy hop. Light body with mild bitterness. Body is on the watery side. Well, the brewery nailed the style BUT.... producing a macro tasting lager for a craft market? I enjoy this breweries more creative offerings.

Bottle from a trade with WillRunForBeer. Pours hazy straw color with white head. Cereal malt and grassy aroma. Lightly sweet malt flavor with grassy hops. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Brian.

MaBeer1972 (1470) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2014
12-pack from Julio’s. Can’t beat the price at $10.99. A very pale yellow brew. Fluffy white head. Light malty flavors throughout. Some fizziness. Pretty boring, honestly.

Pale yellow beer with a quickly disappearing white head. Nose with a little malt and a little lemon. Clean, crisp beer with cracker and lemon cookie notes.

Draft sample at the brewery. Clear gold. Clean, simultaneously smooth and crisp, refreshing, biscuit, hint of lemon. Medium carb and feel. Top notch for a lighter lager. They were out of bottles to-go so I’m very glad I got to try this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taster from Tap at the brewery. Very pale gold. Light malt nose and a kiss of hops. Light, crisp flavor, tasty lemon and biscuit. Very light and drinkable summer beer, not a whole lot going on though. Well done for what it is.
