The Farmhouse lager is a solid offering from Crown Valley. The beer poured a clear yellow with thin white head that did not lace. The scent was grassy like hops and marzen malt. The taste was a nice well balanced lager that was easy drinking. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall a solid beer and easily sessionable and went well with the pizza.

Crown Valley Farmhouse Lager has a thick, spongy, white head, a hazy, yellow-golden, bubbly appearance, and essentially no lacing left behind. The aroma is very bread oriented and sweet, and the flavor is of sweetness, biscuit, grits, and bread dough. Mouthfeel is medium and doughy, and Crown Valley Farmhouse Lager finishes refreshing, semi-dry, and extremely drinkable. Overall, this is one to enjoy, and suggest checking it out.

Poured this 12 oz bottle of American Pale Lager into a pint glass. Poured a clear straw color, left no lacing on the glass. Small white head, little lacing left behind. The aroma contained some hints of malted grain and earthy grass. Light bodied, a foundation of malted grain with a slight touch of hops. Overall, its decent but nothing sets this apart from other pale lagers.

A - Poured out a clear, straw yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It left very little lacing.

S - Not impressed with the aroma. Reminded me of a Euro Lager - grains, hay and grass.

T - It tasted of sweet grains and caramel with a touch of spiciness. Better than the aroma, but still not very enjoyable.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied lager with a dry finish.

O - Never a good thing when appearance and mouthfeel are the best attributes.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of grains and malts. Taste is crisp, malty, some grains, a bit of sweetness, very refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this would be a good summertime beer.

Bought a 12 Fluid Oz. bottle of this from Lukas Liquor in Ellsiville, MO for $1.49. Poured from the teal labeled bottle with a House on the front into my 16oz St. Louis Cardinals Pint Glass. No freshness date like always from Crown Valley...

Aroma- Very nice Vienna malt aroma with sweetness and a nice "Blonde ale" style aroma. Very light hops and then has a good amount of grain.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that has fantastic retention time! Has a pale straw colored body that is clear also. Leaves thick lacing surprisingly.

Flavor- Nice sweetness and malt from the beginning of the taste. Very light all the way through, no hops in the taste, and then finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Slick, and goes down a bit watery.

Overall Impression- A good refreshing Lager, I compare this one to a light version of an American Blonde ale. Cool to be the first person to review this and compared to the Antique Lager, I enjoyed this one much more! Go for it if you have a chance or better yet, go to Lukas Liquor and mix together a Mix-A-Six pack with MANY from Crown Valley!

Hmmm... this was strange beer...
I had a whole six pack of this but only ended up drinking 2 due to guests.
The color was very light yellow, with almost no head, but bubbles did spring up from the bottom. The strange part was that it had a very light milky haze to it, light in color, yet it was still very clear. First taste revealed pilsner type qualities, with extremely mild hop flavor and high carbonation. My first initial thought was that this was a very good lager, but there was a strange sour after taste. Not a lemon sour, but like... well... spoiled milk sour...
I wonder if I had a bad batch or something?
I want to like this beer... It has potential, but I cant with the strange sour flavor to it.
I will try it again on tap when I visit the Crown Valley Brewery and update this review.
