Breck LagerBreck Lager
Notes: Breck Lager is a delightfully crisp standard American Lager. Clean and bright with the color of sunflowers, it greets you with a soft, malty, sweet aroma that's grounded by hints of grains and earth. The light maltiness comes through in flavor as well, which gives Breck Lager its satisfying body. Subtle hop character leaves a pleasant, dry finish that invites the next sip.

12oz can served in a tulip. Brought to me by a new colleague who brought it with him when he moved from Colorado a couple weeks ago. "Best enjoyed by" 12/31/20.

Pours clear light yellow, small to medium head that fades to almost nothing after a few minutes. Smell is mild, lager yeast, a little grain, maybe a little grain husk.

Taste is also fairly mild, which I guess is probably to style. Mild graininess, mild lager yeast, mild honeysuckle, mild grass.

Mouthfeel is light, dry, refreshing. Overall, it's a decent beer, nothing special though.

Poured from a 12-oz can into pilsner glass and good head achieved. The head died down quickly but left some lacing. Strong golden color and mellow aroma. Smooth drinking with very subtle hop notes up front with smooth finish. Overall very nice lager beer, easy drinking, with enough going on to bring you back for another.

Golden look with a slight chill haze and a fading white head, this brew looks ok. Touch of sweet malt and a slight hop element on the nose, nothing exciting. Slight malt touch of bite on the end. This is what I would term a light beer, at least in flavor. Medium carbonation and a medium/thin feel. Better than an adjunct macro I guess.

Clear yellow with a generous white head, nice retention, spotty lace.
Hay and light malt aroma
Clean malt flavor along with some grassy hops
Light bodied with good carbonation
This is a good everyday lager for just putting one back

12oz can with a best by date of 8-28-20. Opened 7-3-20.
1 1/2" white head, good retention and settles in at a 1/4" cap.
Golden and bright lager with good clarity.
Sweet malt, honey, light floral, grassy, tiny hint of sulfur.
Lightly malty, a touch of sweetness and a slight fruit (apple?) note.
Medium body and carbonation. Hefty mouthfeel. Quick and off-dry finish.
Drinkability is good. Simple, well made, and a definite candidate for session-ing, BBQ or pool side.
Good.

The feel is what surprised me with this one.It has better body than I expected for the ABV. In so it is a satisfying beer if you want something lighter and easy to session.

Lager pours a golden color, with a very very small head. Sweet buttery aroma. Flavor is very sweet, buttery, some off grainy flavors. Flat body. Overall, its okay, enjoyable, but nothing special.

by defunksta from North Dakota

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, clear, deep golden color with a marshmallow, white, lingering head. SRM of 10. (4.25)

Aroma: Aromas of grass, lemon, and some floral component. Aromas of European hops. Light crackery malts. (4.0)

Flavor: Flavors of lemon, grass, floral. European and German hop flavors. Not bitter. Ends with a slight crackery malt profile. Finishes dry, but not bitter. (4.25)

Feel: Incredibly smooth, yet crisp and well-carbonated. Medium-bodied. Lingering grass on the palate which is nice. (4.25)

Overall: What a great beer. So much better than I was expecting. Nice European flavors. I'd label it like a German pale lager. A little lemon and cereal malt to identify as American. A fantastic, smooth, and flavorful lager. It exceeded my expectations. Exceptional for the style. (Final Rating: 4.09)

I didn't hate this beer but I also didn't care for it. This could be any other pale lager with that classic beer-y taste and feel. Probably good for converting someone from macros to craft beers, but given the choice I would choose most other beers from their lineup. Standard for the style.

Attractive head and hue to this namesake lager. Not a ton of flavor but pleasant with some late spice on top of a basic bread note. Nice overall aftertaste, a little grainy. This is a solid easy drinking lager with a thicker mouthfeel than you usually find in the style.
