Had this on tap at my local. Not much going on here, light flavor, not much malt, not much hops, didnt taste fully lagered. The backbone was sweeter than it should be given the paucity of flavors - honestly I prefer Negra Modelo for a Vienna.

Pours golden amber color with think white head. No real high notes here. Fairly carbonated and stale hops are the main points here. Not terrible, but just another run of the mill brew

12oz twist-off bottle. Light orange-amber color. Thin white head. Hint of cardboard in the nose. Finishes with a bit of fruit, sharp bitterness. Lots of crispness. Flavor of toast, sweet malt, and woody tannins. A good summer Lager.

Bottle from giant sterling. Pours orange with a half an inch of white foam. A bit citrusy on the nose. Pretty smooth on the tongue with a slight hint of malt sweetness on the finish. Its not lager but it could be worse.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is also malty with hints of caramel leading to a light hoppy finish. OK.

12oz. Everything about this lager is sweet, sweet, sweet. Aroma is sweet, body is sweet corn. Fairly medium bodied for a vienna (of the ones Ive had.) Nothing to get too excited about.

THOUGHTS: Nice beer, but lagers aren’t really one of my favorite styles. Even though I never heard of Starr Hill before visiting the brewery and buying five of their beers, they continue to impress me. This isn’t bad just nothing special. It did go down easy though. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light amber with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma was light caramel malt and moderate to heavy flower and grass hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, light to moderately acidic and bitter, and sour with an average to short duration. There was a little caramel malt then lots of grassy hops and then finished sour. The light to medium body was sort of creamy with tingly carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Golden color with a small white head that goes away. Slightly fruity at the start before becoming very watery throughout. Highly fizzy. Almost seltzer water quality in there. bleh.

This is about as average of a beer as you can get. It pours a dark golden color with a nice-sized white head. The head leaves a cascading lace around the glass. But unfortunately, thats the best this beer offers. The nose falls short, offering only slight hints of bready malts and light hops. The flavors are even more bland. Drinking this beer is more like drinking carbonated, malt-and-hop-flavored water. I get a little maltiness in the finish with some light and slightly spicy hops. But thats it.
