Draft at the brewpub. 3.8% abv. Marketed as a pilsner. Light coloured body,little head, with lace. Cheesy aroma. Mouthfeel somewhat watery. Borderline drinkability. A malt job, aimed at transitioning from Bud Light or whatever.There are some beers aimed at more knowledgeable consumers.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light doughy malt and flowery hop.

The taste was upfront doughy with a light grain and slightly spivey hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a supeusingly tasty light lager. Well done.

Huguenot St. American Lager – on tap at Gilded Otter

Appearance – came out a pale yellow, medium head rising up and staying there, lots of carbonation

Smell-fairly clean, a whiff of malt and grain, smells like its fills with adjuncts, mild fruit arrangement.

Taste/Mouthfeel- light flavor, clean with grain, decent flavor, refreshing, light mouthfeel. Easy drinking if mild and derivative.

Overall-nothing special, but it’s alright. Clean and balanced.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Not really my thing, but actually not too bad for the style. Called an American lager on the menu, but labeled as a pilsner on the sampler tray.

Slightly hazed straw-yellow pour, foamy white head that retained decently. Light aroma, grains and sugar. Taste of lightly toasted grains, corn, pale malts, light floral hops. Nothing special in the grand scheme, but for a beer that could be served to anyone who comes in asking for something close to a Miller, this was on the higher end of the spectrum. Light body, drinkable for the style, good lawnmower beer, but nothing I'd want more than a sample of at the bar.

Perhaps it was the fact that this was the first beer I consumed in a week and it came after a long, traffic-filled drive but I liked this one a good deal more than most, apparently. Its a very pale yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Points must be deducted for almost no aroma at all save a very vague sweet graininess.

However the taste isn't bad. There's a light grainy malt flavor, a touch of sweetness balanced by a little floral, saaz-style hoppy bitterness, and an overall clean and crisp character. Finishes dry. Light-bodied with medium carbonation. Thankfully not overly fizzy. Yes its a stretch to call this "craft" beer but it hit the spot so sue me.

First of the style, an interesting brew that is very drinkable.

Pours light amber with some good carbonation. Moderately foamy head. Smells of some light hops, a little breadiness. Taste follows with light mixture of bitter hops and breads, a little alcohol in the back makes it more lagerish. I'd like a heavier more complex brew, but for drinking this one is a rather good choice.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a grainy pale malt scent along with a nice hop aroma to boot. The taste is decent as well. It has a light, pale malt flavor that seems a bit grainy. It's easy drinking with some mild hop notes and a bit of residual sugar in the finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a very drinkable lager. It's light, but has enough mouthfeel and hop character to keep me interested.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.
Served as a pale golden colored beer with massive white puffy head,
Smell is minimal with a light fruit character.
Taste is also light. There is a bit of maltiness, but not much.
Light and refreshing.
A very non-offensive beer that went down very easily with my meal.
