2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
an OK, mildly spiced lager. It pours amber with average head, and the aroma is malt and a little spice. There is a combo of some slightly grassy hops and a bready malt in the flavor, but nothing big, nothing complex. This wasn’t a bad way to wash down dinner, but neither is a glass of tea.

Pours clear amber with a small white, fizzy head. Smells of caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Taste is malty sweet, like caramel, with a touch of lager bitterness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Starr Hill Festie finishes with a touch of bitterness.

Nice rummy appearance. Vanilla odor, which lasted into its initial taste, giving it a "cream soda" flavor. Nothing to write home about though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy dark orange amber with a small head that completely disappears, no lace. Becomes so still, it looks like a glass of tea. The taste is malt with some ginger and bread notes, maybe a little mown field grass. Slight bittering at the finish. A pleasant but low-key brew; not memorable.
