Ellicott Mills Boomerang Lager
Not that great, not that bad. The first time I tasted it I was told it was somewhat like a Fosters. I would put it on the same level as Foster’s but it tastes more like a staple European lager with not much aroma like Maartens or Stella Artois.

Haven’t had this in a couple years. From what I remember it was excellent for a kolsch and tasted like it came right from the Rhineland. Sad they took this off their taps.
