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 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.

Crushable macro lager taste without the off putting metal or corn. Light hops, pale cracker malts and a light macro skunk insets.

Pours gold into a shaker. Tried many times over the summer from the bottle and found it to be very clean. Bright white head crackles and recedes to nothing. Sourdough biscuit aromas. Very dry with sweet caramel and hay. Not for me, but prefer it to any macro lager - and like to support this brewery.

popery (1419) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 20, 2014
The beer is pale yellow. Fairly hazy. Nice-sized white head, a bit fizzy. Dissipates after a minute. It’s lemony with a really nice lager yeastiness to it. Bright, fresh grain. Mild floral aroma. Good bite of lager tartness on the palate. The finish has a gentle hop bite, grassy and floral. Very clean and refreshing. Quite dry. Soft feel, yet stays pretty crisp. Really gentle and easy to drink. Spreads out on the palate, just a pillow of lager. That soft mouthfeel combined with the fresh grain and mildly sour lager yeastiness works very well. I could drink this all day.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is basically pale yellow with a short-lived white head. The aroma is grains, malts, barley, but little in the way of hops. The body is light to medium. The taste is also quite grainy and mildly malty with a mild hop character. This does have something worth trying if you enjoy the style.
