2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Recent bottle from Village Beer Merchant. Foaming yellow coloured body. Mildly cheesy. Average mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation. Neutral taste, nothing special. So-so drinkability

On tap @ Lazy Boy Saloon. Poured a light amber with a thin white head. Aroma includes notes of grass, floral, and hops, but nothing distinguishable or enticing. Taste is similar and quite simple with only one note. Nothing offensive, but nothing that would make me want to drink again.

Serving: Draft. Slightly estery with light grain notes. Light to medium body with a nice crispness and a dry finish. I pretty decent take on the style.

I guess as a bridge beer to wean people off the standard macro stuff it is okay but not much of interest here. Grassy nose with corn. Palate seems to have a bit of the nice German hops. Drinkable. Gold clear and no hear and little retention or lacing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler filled at Shoreline Beverage. Pours a hazy gold with a thin linen white head that was gone after the first sip and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of lemon as well. The flavor is grainy malt with some mild pine and a few traces of lemon. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Some mild biscuit emerges in the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden white sticky head. Fairly expensive for a 5.5% lager. Aroma is nicely bread, stinky grassy hops, biscuit. Flavor follows, pretty nice, easy drinking, like the balance, perfect bitterness with sweetness. Very nice beer that probably belongs on draft or in six packs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
North Star, Ithaca tap ($6): Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of hops. The hops are, however, much stronger in the taste than they are in the aroma. Taste is somewhat malty, but not that much. This was not a very interesting beer, but it was well-balanced and it did have a nice hop profile.
