12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store. Another lager from Church Street Brewing. I have higher hopes for this one, because I wasn't a big fan of the other one. My bottle lists a 5.30% abv, instead of the 5.70% abv listed on BeerAdvocate.

Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A - Pours a nice bright golden yellow colored body with three big fingers of sticky fluffy white foam for a head. Nice clarity with just a bit of yeast sediment. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is of floral and grassy hops, husky graininess, some honeyed biscuit malts, and some musty yeast funk. Smells nice, I can't wait to try it. There is actually quite a lot of funk present, as the beer begins to really open itself up.

T - Taste is of crisp pilsner malt, grain, corn, husk, some grassy / floral hops, fruity lemongrass, a hint of coiny metallics, and lots of funky yeast, almost brett like. There is actually quite a lot of funk going on here at times, but other times it's more tame and held back.

M - Feel is crisp, clean, light, and refreshing. Mild earthy hop bitterness / bready malt aftertaste.

Overall, a very nice lager. I'm not sure why my bottle was so yeasty at times, but it was quite nice. I don't know if this beer is bottle conditioned or not, but there was a very thin layer of sediment left behind in the bottle, also. Light, crisp, and refreshing. This would be a good go to lager for the summertime.

Church Street Brewing Continental Lager ---4/5.

Served in a Sam Adams shaker pint glass at the Beer Market in Lincolnshire.

Finally getting a chance to try out this new local brewery's offerings. Right on. This stuff pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises grass, flowers, and some very light biscuit in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with the noble hop-like grassy-ness really shining well. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Overall, a very nice lager, one that seems to proudly showcase its hopping without going too far with it. Not bad at all.
