First had: can, sample tasting at Edgemont Beer

Golden-straw color, clear, with a thin layer of bubbles on top. Plastic cup, so no real lacing going on. Aroma was pretty "lagery," sweet with bready malts, almost doughy, and some light floral hops. Taste of cereal grains, sweet, more of the bready malts from the aroma, light floral hops. A pretty basic lager. A bit bland and dull, no real crispness to it. Light body. I guess it was okay, if you like lagers, but I wasn't really digging it, and I wouldn't even call it a lawnmower beer. But it was a free sample, so I couldn't turn it down.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: An alluringly bright gold color.

S: Pleasantly sweet grains. Freshly shelled wheat husks. No grassiness nor subtle spicing can be detected.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Not as a crisp finish as desired. Only semi-dry, and left with a wet palate. Breadiness pervades.

T: Honeysuckle. Very clean tasting malt forward beer. Needs more hop bitterness to tidy up the malt sweetness.

O: Definitely showcases the German malts nicely, but at the expense of any noticeable contribution from the Czech pilsen hops.

This golden lager is very light and easy to drink. I enjoy this beer very much. The German pips malt really stands out in the taste. And the hallertauer hops are the perfect choice to put a hint of bitterness in the after taste. I would recommend this beer for a tailgate or on the beach.
