3.33/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - crystal clear golden amber with a thin off white head

S - almost a maple aroma, sweet malts

T - starts of with a malt sweetness and finishes with notes of corn, maple syrup, and butterscotch.

M - medium bodied with medium carbonation

O - maybe I shouldn't have had it after the IPA but this verged on undrinkable for me, although my friend loved it.

Clear light gold with good carbonation and a light malty aroma and flavor. Light in body. Pretty much light in everything - overall not bad but certainly not strong enough to come back to.

Per Jaxon's website: Amber in color. A light-bodied Mexican-style Lager. Our most popular brew. Served with a lime. Approximately 3.5 % alcohol/weight.

3.35/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Served a nice amber color with a small head and no lacing. It came with a wedge of lime which I discarded.

S: Has a faint aroma of malt sweetness and a bit fruity, probably from the lime wedge.

T: Taste consists of a mild sweetness and just a faint trace of bitterness. Has a dry finish.

F: Light body, smooth but sort of bland.

O: Decent drinker as it goes down easy. Would make a nice session beer. I guess the lime is to hide a bit of the blandness.

3.73/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Ruby amber body with lots of visible carbonation. Small white lace.

Smell - Light, sweet smell. Almost like strawberries.

Taste - Good for the style, beats other more mainstream vienna lagers like Dos Equis Amber, but not by a whole lot. Barely noticeable bitterness. Slight hoppiness. A little boring, but enjoyable.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation. Maybe a tad slightly fuller body than mainstream vienna lagers.

Drinkability - Easy enough to drink to be a session, but a little too boring to be a first pick.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

explained to me that it was light a Dos Equix style of beer

A: light brown, slight cloudiness
S: sweet malt, caramelized malt, slight oxidation, almost like Irish red from same brewery
T: very little hops, very light, sweet not lager at all
D&M: for a lager it was not true to type at all

3.93/5  rDev +20.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Menu lists this as 3.5% abv.

Aroma: They serve it with lime, which is a nice addition, but overpowers any other smells, even after the lime is out.

Appearance: Clear dark gold glass with a thin white head that doesn’t last.

Flavor: There is a nice honey flavor that really surprised me. I agree with the Vienna lager category on this one. I expected a bland lager and got a surprisingly rich flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light body and good carbonation

Overall Impression: The Borderland Lager was the pick of the litter for me. I was surprised!
