US backlog 2012. Draught at Monticello Heritage Harvest Festival Sep 2012. Easy drinking mid-spectrum lager with a fruitier malt touch and inoffensive hops. Pleasant enough to wash down the quality harvest fare, else forgettable.

Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Smells of crackers, biscuits, grass. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet - biscuit, hint of lemon, bitter herbs.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Off white head on the pour, but it didn’t last at first; but held up after it warmed a bit. Light amber body is very appealing. The aroma is light spicy and floral hops with a decent bready malt... Also a touch of green apples. Flavor isn’t quite as pronounced on the swallow with the above, but it is balanced to sweet up front with a honey-like flavor. A touch of bitterness in the finish and aftertaste is most welcome to help balance out the sweetness. Also a touch of herbal hop flavor at the finish and aftertaste. Prickly carbonation and light but not watery body typical of lighter lagers. Overall, not a bad beer!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden amber color. Aroma is malty with a slight hint of spicy hops. Taste has some biscuitiness and a slight malt sweetness. Otherwise it is a pretty clean. Nice dry crisp finish with just enough bitterness to balance it out.

I concur, is this pronounced, "homo lager"? Interesting. Drsilverworm sent me this as an extra -- many thanks, sir! Pours an instantaneous orange juice color with a brim off-white head. Smells straightaway of flour dough. Really, flour dough? I also detect juniper berries, hop oil and citrus. Tastes citrusy with an underlying malt bite by mid-palate and reasonable bitterness and busicuit chewiness by swallow. Peppery notes also detected. This is a drinkable, competently brewed Vienna but certainly nothing amazing.

12oz bottle, thanks to Andrew. To a spanish-speaker, would this be pronounced "homo lager"? Fun. Bottled 7/5/12. Clear golden color. Minimal white head. Sweet flavor, kinda zesty. Corn, hay, bread, pepper aroma. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Definitely a pretty alright lager. Some citrus. Good, but I liked the Starr Hill Pilsner much better. Andrew loves this, he bought a whole 12.
