2.88/5 rDev -3.4%
Type: 16 oz on-tap
From: The Original Cottage Inn in Ann Arbor
Price: $4 a pint
I usually write out the characteristics for each aspect but this beer was just too bland. The smell was almost non-existant. The taste wasn't bad but it wasn't good, just bland. The mouthfeel and the appearance of it are probably the best parts, but they aren't overly special.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very good pale lager. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A - Only above average, because the clarity and color were very nice, particularly if they don't filter like a larger production commercial version would be.
This is the beer to order for your friend who doesn't like craft beer and prefers very standard fair, best consumed very cold. This was largely indistinguishable from something like MGD. It was a good rendition of the style, but had no standout characteristics that made it particularly noteworthy either.

12 oz. bottle. No freshness date.
Very clear, clean golden straw. Small, off-white head, with not much retention or lacing. Nose of honey, wheat bread, some cereal. Spicy, peppery, herbal hop aroma as well. Nice!
Toasted grains up front. Spicy, peppery herbal hop bitterness follows. Honeyed wheat bread, and faintly sweet cookie malt fill in. Nice balance, and good clean lager flavors throughout. Moderate body with a crisp, lively feel. Refreshing and well made.

Appearance - Pours a pale golden color with a centimeter thick head that disappears instantly leaving a frothy film and very nice lacing.
Smell - Has a very nice sweetness to it.. But then smells sour after. There's some spices, maybe clove.
Taste - Toasted and pale malts. Has a weird spiciness to it, like peppercorns and something else.. Also has some strong herbal hops.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall - Not a bad beer if you like it on the spicy side.
