Glass - Mug

A - Pale/golden colored brew with a soapy 2-finger head. Head retention is Lager like, which is to say it didn't stick around long. Surprisingly low-moderate visible carbonation. Not much lacing.

S - Berries, berries, berries as soon as i pop the bottle. A bit strong smelling of blueberries with an undertone of cracker like malt. Not much else i can pick up.

T - A balance of tart/sweet and funky blueberries flood the palate. A surprising amount of musty lager yeast and biscuit like malt flavors that lend a balancing hand. Bitterness is almost absent, mild remnants of berry linger on the tongue a bit.

M - Lite-medium bodied, smooth, airy and moderately crisp.

O - Well, nothing wowing here but i gotta say I'm enjoying it. Blueberry is everywhere with this beer, and although it's a strong taste of it, it's pretty natural tasting to me. Balanced out with that Lager yeast in there. Refreshing as beer gets, i'd drink it again but i can't say i'd buy it again for sure. Definitely worth a try though. Cheers!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Hazy dull orange body, topped by three fingers of white foam. Drippy lace bits.

Assertive, pleasant, not overly aggressive blueberry aroma.

Tastes like a soft helles or export lager, with a pleasant dash of blueberries.

Smooth mouthfeel.

Do not come to this expecting Boston Lager in a fifty/fifty mix with blueberry juice. There is a lot less malt, a whole lot less hops, and the blueberries are well balanced. It's a nice summer quaffer, but not something I'd load up on.
