COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our wet hopped lager is made from 100% handpicked (thanks team!) organically grown local hops from our family farm in Vermont. Mild earthy hop aroma mix well with maltly cereal notes from use of locally grown grain from Four Star Farm. Not to be confused as an extra hoppy beer, this is a nicely balanced pleasantly hopped lager. OG 13 / September release.

This is a very very light beer. The hops are subtle floral hops that are interesting but maybe not unique. Reminds me of an avg pilsner. The malts provide very light biscuit/cracker notes. Drinkable and nice but nothing great.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, cereal, and barnyard. Flavor of grain, citrus, bread, and earth.

Leighton (11023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear gold, moderately effervescent with a large, frothy white cap. The bose has lots of doughy bread, cereal, faint lemon and grass. Medium sweet flavor with lots of sugary white bread, Cool Whip, cereal, mild tangerine and straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with further doughy white bread, creamy citrus meringue, straw, faint lemon rind. Very drinkable if a bit simple.

Holtguy (120) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Golden pour with white head. Aroma of grains, but strangely non-hoppy considering the name. Flavor is a sweet, bright pale lager, a bit more flavorful than a typical good lager. Not hoppy. Was disappointed in that. Still pretty good.

brystmar (1258) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2013
#900! Golden, fizzy pour; looks basic and bland. Sweet malted grain fills the air, overly sweet on the palate. Lacks the refinement and depth of other JA lagers.

Dunt (286) - Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Received from my guy Allen. Pours a pale yellow in color with a half fingers worth of tight white head. Nose is strong lager yeast and spice. A little grainy as well. Flavor focuses more on the graininess, there is absolutely no hoppiness to it. Like another reviewer mentioned, this is very cereal like. Good carbonation, light crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate finish. Not a bad traditional lager, but was hoping for more hoppiness. They do hoppy lagers so well that I think this is a disappointment.

ScipioA (302) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 28, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Yellow without much head, a little hop haze to it. Fairly weak floral aromas. Nice flavor though, lots of grassy hops on display. Well balanced by the underlying sweet lager. Easy-drinking mouth feel, no fault there. Decent beer, never had a wet-hopped lager before. $7 draft pour at Mead Hall in Cambridge.

Draft at Blue monk, golden pour. Earthy, grainy, cereal aroma with slight berry notes. Grainy, cereal flavor. Sweet malty finish. Ok

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Draft at Blue monk. Dark golden pour, thin off white head. Nose is cereal, some wheat, light hop presence. Taste is mostly earthy cereal and malt. Some grassy light hop presence, but no bitterness. Long finish. Kind of boring.

tom10101 (2796) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Tip Tap Room (Boston). Slightly hazy bright golden with a low white head and some lacing. Aroma is of fresh cereals, wet grass, light honey and light skunky notes. Taste is mostly of grass along with fresh cereals, light skunky notes and light sweetness. Medium body. Low carbonation. Clean mouthfeel. Easy to drink and not unpleasant, but a tad too "green" for my liking.

WillRunForBeer (678) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours pale gold with a white head that clings. Aroma of green pepper, wet cracker. Taste is pale malt, dry, very little hop. Easy to drink, but not that interesting.
