3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another Starr Hill brew where part (or all?) of the output comes from Old Dominion. Deep gold colour. Mild malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Slightly smoky. There’s a touch of hay, but the hops are very muted. OK, but it didn’t really get my mojo working. On tap at the Starr Hill Brewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from the Flying Saucer in Nashville; there were a few other brews I’d rather have tried, but this crosses Virginia off my map. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, cereal, fruity notes. Flavor follows suit, with nuts, caramel malts, some fruits, and cardboard. Just a bit of hops detectable. Light-medium bodied, with a dry and quick finish. Moderate carbonation. Easily sessionable beer, and sure beats a macro lager for a night of binge drinking with friends.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap (2010) in a lager glass. The pour is pale brown with a 2-finger white head. The aroma is all corn taco shells and the flavor is similar but with plenty of buttery diacetyl. The dry hop presence comes out in the exhale.

Bottle from dkachur. Thanks man! Aroma is nice and malty with some moderated fruitiness and some caramel, light floral hops too. Pours a hazy amber/gold tone with a thin head. Flavor of moderately sweet caramel malts, light fruitiness, and crisp floral hops in the finish. Light and crisp with pretty high carbonation.
