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

Appearance: Standard gold. 1/2" white head fades to a lasting lacing.

Aroma: Beery. Clean. European hops prevalent. Among three lighter style craft beers in a flight, this was my favorite.

Taste: Bitter arrival, in the best way. Clean and grassy across mid-palate, grainy.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, mid-to-lightweight.

Overall: Nice. This is what Heineken and Stella want to be when they grow up.

Serving type: on-tap

Starlight Lager
Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon
Style: Munich Helles Lager
ABV: 5.20 %

LOOK: Pours a perfectly clear golden color with a cap of foamy froth. Leaves a bit of lace on the glass and looks like a standard lager,

SMELL: Bread, biscuit, toast, and a bit of grassy, floral hops.

TASTE: Richly malty, with a strong caramelized malt flavor along with some bready and toffee like notes. Hops come off as herbal, grassy, even a bit soapy. Pretty mellow flavors with a small bitterness.

FEEL: Lighter bodied lager, well carbonated, a little loose and not quite as crisp as some of the standout examples of the style.

OVERALL: An agreeable, easy drinking lager. Simple, but decent for what it is. Just about an average lager.

Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a 1-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Not a huge aroma – some malts and grains.

T: Crisp malty flavor with some mild fruits in the background.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Not one my favorite beer of Fat’s heads – although my brother loves it – but he also likes Miller Lite.

On tap at Fat Head's.

Pours a clear golden-straw color with a good white head and quite a bit of lacing as that eventually falls down into a thin collar. The nose brings a bit of grain and straw without too much else. There is a touch of light fruit and some herbal hops, though those are quite faint. The taste falls along the same lines. There is some grain and faint Noble hops, though I didn't really get anything else. The body is pretty good with some refreshing carbonation. Drinks pretty well overall--nice, clean, and inoffensive.

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, faint hints of sweet fruit. In the taste, nice malt and fruit presence, with a small reminders of standard lager tastes. A small hop bite and light bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, small fruit in the aftertaste. Better than a standard lager, and a bit fruity and less abrasive than expected.

A- Clear golden color with a half inch of loose white head. Head quickly falls to a ring and spots.

S- Barley, grassy, faint sent of biscuits, and a slight hop presence.

T- Like Bud but stronger.

M- Not enough carbonation, leaves it flat, scummy, and non-refreshing. I went with this beer thinking it would be refreshing; it fell short.

D- If its all there was Id drink it.

F.T.- I don't mean to dog this beer. It just didn't live up to my expectations for the style. Fatheads has other beers that are much better. JMO.

Notes from the brewery: STARLIGHT LAGER 5.2% abv 29 ibu .5Liter $4.25 Bright, clean golden lager that balances malt and noble hops to quench your thirst. This German style Helles
Lager will be the perfect companion to the Parma Karma Platter.

Live review. Poured into a clean, clear glass from tap the brewery/brew pub.

A Light golden, translucent body under a brief head, as I expected.
3.0

S Barley smell in front is desirable. 3.0

T Crisp, clean, light golden lager that tastes quite good to me as the barley presence is reasonably high. This is not a weak American BMC lager but a nice light German style lager. 4.0

M As mentioned, crisp, clean, finishes clean too. 3.5

D Very good as the style suggests that it likely would. 4.5
