3.43/5 rDev -3.9%
Pours a cloudy golden, with a huge head of white carbonation. Not much lace, though, oddly.
Nose is light grains and malts, yeast. Very mild.
Taste is crisp and malty, with only a tinge of citrus hops at the finish. This is a smooth and easy-to-drink lager -- not overly memorable but solid and quite session-worthy.

This bottle poured a slightly hazy, straw colored body with a thin, watery head that dissipated rather quickly. The aroma consisted of earthy and floral hops shadowed by a bread and yeast note. The taste was very similar to the aroma, but the bread flavor was dominant. The floral, earthy, and piney hops were very subtle in the finish only. The mouthfeel was a touch watery, but nothing to stop me from buying another sixer. Overall, a great brew.

“Fountain Square Brewing Company: bringing science to the art of brewing.” I like where this is headed.
A: Pale yellow, translucent body with only a split-second of bubbly white head until it diminishes to nothing. Very little lacing and retention, as such, making it look like your run-of-the-mill pale American lager.
S: Though faint, the nose extends typical bready qualities with a spike of unexpected fruitiness; toasted, buttery bread melds with pear and raspberry iced tea to give off a reasonably tart apple pie scent. Clean lager yeasts are mild but noticeable toward the finish.
T: On the forefront it’s citrus and grain, exhibiting a soft blend of pulpy orange juice and wheat bread. Though slow to start, the yeast is evident in every moment of the drink, making chewy dough the major sensory experience of this beer – a warm, floury wholeness that fills the palate to the brim. Slight black pepper and mint flavors of the hops bring out crusty baguette tastes in the finish, giving a dry, grainy aftertaste.
M: A bit slimy and undercarbonated for my tastes – I feel like this would be better on tap. More fizz to bring out the hops and keep this from becoming a chore by the bottom of the glass.
O: This is an interesting beer because of its inconsistency; that is, some areas (like the genuine bread flavors) are above average and some areas (like the faint nose) are below average. As I said above, I’ll try this on tap if I can, and as of now, I’m still interested in picking up a few more bottles from Fountain Square – though not of this one.
