look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a cheap glass stein. Nice medium amber color with a good head. Very little lacing. Not overly hoppy - nice balance between hop and malt. Hints if citrus. Nice, refreshing beer. Need to make a trip to the mountains to try this on tap.
