Overall, the carbonation could have been better but the beer is okay, nothing flashy for the style but nothing overly impressive either.

So this was the beer of the Red Sox? No wonder I’m a Yankees fan. A more bitter version of Natural Light at best. Drinkable, but not a go-to.

Draft at GABF 2013. Extremely quiet nose, as in there’s nothing to smell really. Takes a couple of minutes and a few swirls to coax a small bit of bready / cracker-y pale malt character out of it, and there’s no hop aromatics in play at all. Mild grain and corn kernel flavor with a watery body and twangy, sharp, sourish grains in the finish. Another throwaway lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can @ Smoke & Barrel, Washington, D.C. Pours clear straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast with notes of hops and a touch of grain. Mild, slightly bitter flavour with pronounced estery notes. Mildly bitter and rather skunky finish. Not a bad Pale Lager but, honestly, who likes this style?

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 21.06.2013, tap @ Stoddard’s Fine Food & Ale:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish, light malts, wet hay, grass, berries. Taste is slightly sweet, light malts, cereal, caramel, hay, cereal. Little bitterness. Just another boring lager.

A golden color with a great taste that is not very strong not mild. It has an aroma very smooth.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty typical Pale Lager, a little bit of corn, a light vegetal undertone, zero hops. The flavor is fairly clean though, there’s certainly corn in here, but it’s not terribly center stage. Still a lack of hops in here, but I suppose that’s to be expected. Still miles better than most macro Pale Lagers. It’s actually pretty crisp on the finish with a short tight finish. Not a bad drinker, among the better efforts in the style.
