Draft at Southwind Cafe Mathews VA: Weak corn aroma. Clear amber, medium light yellow, some glass adherence. Grainy with lemon zest at midpalate. Better than the macros, but still rather weak. lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2011
12 oz. bottle in a shaker. Thin golden pour with small head. Grassy, citrus aroma. Spicy hop flavor, with a mildly sweet finish. More enjoyable than your standard macro, but not by much. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2011
The aroma is dusty and metallic with malt and hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not a very good drink. badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow with a moderate white head. Lots of effervescence, and a scent of lemon. Has a pretty bland mouthfeel / taste. Malty notes, and pretty bland. Not offensive...just....there. fidelis83 (2403) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours pale gold with a thin, soapy, white head that has decent retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is grass, spice, hay, toast, bready yeast and cereal grain. Flavor is mostly a sort of sweet breadiness up front with some toast coming in toward the finish along with the spicy, planty hops. Palate is thin throughout, starts a little oily and finishes off dry with a moderate strength, sharp carbonation. It’s odd, the hops don’t really come in until near the finish, but fade very quick and the beer finishes pretty clean, despite starting sweet and finishing hoppy (relative to the style in both cases), I would imagine this could appeal to many BMC drinkers. Seems more like a premium lager, as is is pretty well hopped and fairly malty, though it may not be all malt.

Bottle. Mildly sour barley malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with giant head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter weedy flavor. Not so good. Patrickctenchi (6552) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a short, off-white head.
Aroma of sweet citrus and malt.
Taste is a doughy, leafy, bitter.
Not exactly pleasant. N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Usually a fan of both lagers and Cricket Hill, wasn’t a huge fan of this one. A bit on the too hoppy side for a lager. Good golden color.
This one just didn’t do it for me. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2014

Appearance: Slightly to moderately hazy golden body with a tall and dense white head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: The smell is of corn and malt sweetness, hints of florallnes, but overall like a poor unfinished homebrew.
Taste: Mildly sweet, tastes underattenuated and very poor quality homebrew like. Malts are prominent, but that’s not saying there’s a lot of flavor in it. There are no flaws but this is pretty bad.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated. Not crisp at all.
Overall: I am sorry dudes, but I can’t find a redeeming quality in this. If I spent $11 on a six pack of this I’d be very pissed.
Fresh bottle. Pale yellow with initial white fizzy head. Gazzy overcarbonated, with metallic in aftertaste. The lagerish taste is overwhelmed by the process, much like a macro.
