3.6/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a light amber color with a nice rush of rising bubbles. Little foam cap serves well.

Cereal grains and herbal and citrusy hops. Light toast.

Tastes refreshing. Toasty grains and caramel malt with a dry hop kiss. Medium bitterness and hardly a trace of booze. Pretty mild flavor.

Crisp and spritzy. Almost sharply so, but in a good way. Easy to enjoy.

This is a nice diminutive amber lager with a light hop presence that I like. Very enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap

3.55/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours amber against my white walls, but orange with golden edges against my review screen. Initial 3 1/2 finger off white head that dissipates very quickly showing fleeting chunkiness and sticky lacing.

Aroma of light sweet malt, but the hops dominate. Grassy with peppery spice. and some over ripe citrus. A hint of lemon.

Familiar taste of sweet toasted malt. Hops are more subdued here, Showing up mainly in the lasting bitter aspect and in light tart citrus.

Medium bodied with peppery carbonation and a descent burn in the throat.

Another pleasant offering from Starr Hill. Nothing spectacular, but well rounded and tasty. I would be happy to try it again.

A- a deep rich clear amber with a creamy white head. HEad has good retention but there is little lacing.

S- some mild biscuit notes and earthy hops

T- some mild bready malt is dominated by the earthy hops

M- a little thinner, given it's fuller-appearing body

O- not terrible, but not overwhelming, either. Middle of the road.

P-Westy's Beer Distributor variety pack

A- cloudy orange color with poor head and poor lacing. Looks like a orange cream ale, if that make sense.

S- bready malts and lemon grass. nothing major but not a bad nose.

F- the lemon grass comes through strong in the flavor. the bready malts are on the back end. It is like eating the mash almost. not all the great for a lager

M- acidic and sour in the mouth but gets smoother as it goes down. I almost get a metallic flavor as well like chrome.

O- average lager. I think yuengling is a better bang for your buck here but this is better than BMC brews.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Poured a medium amber with a large white head that fades to decent lacing.

S: Very bready with a lot of grainy notes and just a hint of citrus. Not a ton going on with the aroma.

T: Up front with bread, mild grass and bitterness but a lot of malt...bready like you'd expect in the style with some caramel sweetness.

M: Medium bodied and fairly crisp. An easy drinking lager for sure.

O: Not great, not awful. A decent easy drinking beer but you could definitely do better.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottleneck says PKG on 11/07/13.

A- Pours a very clean dark amber color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass leaving a jagged ring behind.

S- Very glassy aroma with some cracker-like malt underneath similar to a light macro lager.

T- Alcohol, bland semi-sweet malt and water. That's it. After a few sips it becomes somewhat drinkable but there are no redeeming qualities overall.

M- Sticky and thin. Medium-low carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Wow, this will likely be going down the drain. I don't normally like Vienna lagers but this is a real disaster. Easily the worst offering I've had from Starr Hill.
