Wow, nice beer. Has a hint of what best reminds me of a "sparkling" taste. Fantastic flavor, smooth going down and a real winner in my book.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of grains and malts. Taste is crisp, malty, some grains, a bit of sweetness, very refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this would be a good summertime beer.

Bought a 12 Fluid Oz. bottle of this from Lukas Liquor in Ellsiville, MO for $1.49. Poured from the teal labeled bottle with a House on the front into my 16oz St. Louis Cardinals Pint Glass. No freshness date like always from Crown Valley...

Aroma- Very nice Vienna malt aroma with sweetness and a nice "Blonde ale" style aroma. Very light hops and then has a good amount of grain.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that has fantastic retention time! Has a pale straw colored body that is clear also. Leaves thick lacing surprisingly.

Flavor- Nice sweetness and malt from the beginning of the taste. Very light all the way through, no hops in the taste, and then finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Slick, and goes down a bit watery.

Overall Impression- A good refreshing Lager, I compare this one to a light version of an American Blonde ale. Cool to be the first person to review this and compared to the Antique Lager, I enjoyed this one much more! Go for it if you have a chance or better yet, go to Lukas Liquor and mix together a Mix-A-Six pack with MANY from Crown Valley!

Crown Valley Farmhouse Lager has a thick, spongy, white head, a hazy, yellow-golden, bubbly appearance, and essentially no lacing left behind. The aroma is very bread oriented and sweet, and the flavor is of sweetness, biscuit, grits, and bread dough. Mouthfeel is medium and doughy, and Crown Valley Farmhouse Lager finishes refreshing, semi-dry, and extremely drinkable. Overall, this is one to enjoy, and suggest checking it out.
