Pours an amber color. Has no lacing at all and is very malty on the nose. This is an average lager at best. I would not come back for this. jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Keg @ Starr Hill. Light amber pour with a small head. Nose of strong caramel, red apple skin, concentrated brown sugar and overripe banana. Taste is similarly sweet. Apple candies and a bit of bread. Caramel. Light body, active carbonation. Sickly and without much to commend it. Maverick34 (3409) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottled. Brownish pour. Malts. Caramel. Pretty standard Amarzican/Vienna..Decent enough. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - AUG 5, 2014

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours an orange-amber color with a two finger white head. The head has huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within, which pop over a short amount of time to leave some rather nice lacing.
Smell – The aroma is strongest of a roasted malt and caramel sweet smell. Mixed with this are lighter notes of a bready and light fruit aroma.
Taste – The taste begins of lightly roasted malt and some light fruit sweetness. The fruit flavors are a mix of citrus and some pear and peach. As it advances further some hop flavors of a citrus and earthy nature come to the tongue. The fruits other then the citrus fade more toward the end. While the other fruit flavors fade, the citrus flavors intensify and, when mixed with the hop flavors that came more toward the middle of the taste, a lightly hoped citrus and earthy malt flavor finish out the taste.
Mouthfeel – Quite light bodied with a average level of carbonation. Very easy drinking and god for the style and flavor profile.
Overall – A very easy to drink beer. While not super flavorful and rather light, it is a great choice for a nice session brew.

an OK, mildly spiced lager. It pours amber with average head, and the aroma is malt and a little spice. There is a combo of some slightly grassy hops and a bready malt in the flavor, but nothing big, nothing complex. This wasn’t a bad way to wash down dinner, but neither is a glass of tea.

Pours clear amber with a small white, fizzy head. Smells of caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Taste is malty sweet, like caramel, with a touch of lager bitterness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Starr Hill Festie finishes with a touch of bitterness. Iphonephan (7510) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2013
On draft at Mad Fox Oktoberfest. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Malty nose. Biscuit flavors. Crisp finish. DCLawyer (2949) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle->SA. Copper with large frothy white head. Aroma is faint, with grains, malt, bread, hops. Taste: sweet grains and malt, toffee notes. Ok. kidobutai (701) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Nice rummy appearance. Vanilla odor, which lasted into its initial taste, giving it a "cream soda" flavor. Nothing to write home about though. mike5326 (1789) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Clear orange color, no head. Watery hops smell. Slight hops flavor with some cereal qualities.
