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.

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.

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.
