look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Straw yellow with very visible carbonation. Nice centimeter of head. Some lacing as this goes down.

Lots of straw in the nose.

Clean taste with a slightly bready character. Some sweet notes and more light grainy characters with some earthy bits. Some spice from the hops but fairly mellow.

All in all it's an easy drinking lager. I wouldn't have guessed light lager but the malt characters were on the lighter side. Not so much watered down as it was lighter in malt characters and hops.

Solid and refreshing but nothing too interesting either.

Serving type: on-tap

This was brought to me by my mother in law who was on a quest to find me a beer exclusively distributed in Tennessee. Boy did she hit a home run! First of all the stats are all wrong. It is a pale American lager and the ABV clearly states on the bottle 6.5%, but enough semantics.

Appearance: pours a healthy, bright straw hue with a sizzling head.

Smell: sweetened cereal grains and raw bread dough.

Taste: musty hops provide a nice hug of bitterness behind a strong maltiness. Very easy drinking and sessionable.

A very fine beer from Hap Motlow who brings a fine a whiskey.

Somewhere between a miller light and Yeungling. Its typical look of an American lager, a medium copper, clear and with medium foam that fades fast. Sweet caramel smells, grassy hints of hops and sweet corn. The taste is a bit watery with corn, and caramel malt in the middle and a low hop background of earthy, grassy hints. Light, refreshing, crisp, clean and easy to drink. Pretty typical and boring. I wonder if it is an attempt to appeal to the commerical crowd?

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Tasted On: 03-17-2012
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 330 ml brown bottle
Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

Presentation is 330ml bottle, not seen much in American beers, with a twist cap. Back label has a story of the beer's namesake partners, Hap and Harry, one from the Jack Daniels distillery and one from the first distributor of Jack Daniels, of the Lipman family. Side note on the label says "Crafted exclusively for R.S. Lipman Company by Yazoo Brewing Co., Nashville, TN."

A: Golden color, with clear clarity showing quite a few bubbles in the glass. Head is a modest finger high and fades soon. Lacing is good on the glass.

S: Aromas are grassy and yeasty with a crisp, noble hops character.

T: Clean lager taste, featuring a light bitterness and slight bready sweetness. Also has a low citrus/lemon flavor. Reminds me of a pilsner.

M: Crisp feel, with a high amount of carbonation. Light bodied, with a finish of light bitter hops.

O: I'd say this is a simple but refreshing all-malt lager.

Beer pours a nice dark, but clear yellow color. A slight amount of bubbly head, but not much.

Beer smells of straw and slightly bready.
