I got a can of this off the single shelf at a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice in Dayton,OH. It poured a clear amber with no head and no lace. The scent had faint malt and bitter hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Good, solid summer beer from a local (to me) brewery. It also doubled as a good liquid for a pork roast in the crock pot - made my home smell like a baseball stadium.

Anyway, a simple, no-frills lager.

16 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 3/22/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings in the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, and toasted biscuit; with light notes of honey, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bready malts and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big cracker, white bread dough, and toasted biscuit; with light notes of honey, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey/nutty/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice robustness of bready malts and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 5.3%. Overall this is a delicious amber lager. All around nice robustness of bready malts and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and pretty refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful with a sizable body for the ABV. Very clean and rich Pils/Munich malts; with solid earthy hop balance against sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

16oz can. Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of caramel and floral notes. Sweet caramel taste with a mild bitter hop bite.

Standard Lager brewed by Fulton Beer, with an ABV of 4.50% ABV . This American Amber/Red Lager pours out a deep golden amber color with a nice white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with sweetness from grains and malts. You also pick up on a faint hop bitterness in the smell of this brew. So far this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavors with grains and malts. This brew reminds me of an American Lager than a Red but it is what it is. The body of this brew is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to. I like how smooth this brew goes down. This brew would go nice on any occasion. There is nothing fancy about this brew but nothing bad either. The mouth feel of this brew is Bold, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing overall I'm going to give Standard Lager a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Fulton Beer, did a super nice job with this brew.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into non if pint glass. Straw color, good clarity. Aroma says nice adjunct free lager. Clean flavor lets the malt shine through. I would look for this again.

A thanks to the amazing woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden.orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, honey, some grains. Taste is the same as the aroma, and highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall would be a great backyard beer during the summertime.

Glass: Clear 15.25-oz. pilsner
From: Goebel Liquor / Rob’s World of Beer in Wichita, Kan.
Price: $7.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: March 14, 2018

Reviewed as: American Amber / Red Lager
Misc.: Canned on Aug. 3, 2017 at 1:01 p.m. CT (I think)

Had three of these previous in Wichita on a work trip. Gave them each a 3.5 on Untappd, writing, “Should have looked up this beer before buying it. Detecting blueberry. May review later, but for now back to work.” Well here we are. I was expecting this to be a bit higher than a 3.5 with a full review, but a 3.75 seemed like a 50/50 chance heading in.

Poured a medium amber mostly clear color with three fingers of rocky white head. Lots of bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Excellent foamy layered spiderweb lacing. Almost perfect retention. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled Corn Pops, grass, honey, brown bread, biscuit, grain and light blueberry. More of the same from the can, maybe more compact. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted about as good as the nose, maybe slightly better. Got Corn Pops, honey, grass, hay, brown bread, biscuit, Wheat Thins, grain and hints of blueberry. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt clean finish. (Feel - 4.00)

This was much better than the last few nights out of the can. Just a very good American Amber / Red Lager. (Overall - 3.75)

Very pretty rose gold amber color with white cap.

Aroma of sweet malt and floral hops.

Flavor is a more generous serving of what's found in the scent. Mildly rich sweet malt with a solid presence. Malt forward with counter balancing floral hops that finishes malty sweet with a bit of hop firmness in the aftertaste.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Just a good, solid malt lager with enough going on for it to match most food styles yet interesting enough to drink on it's own. The kind of beer I wish they would serve at our County/State Fairs instead of the usual AALs. Yeah, definitely the thing for Fair food.

Happy New Cut a Single in Minneapolis, MN Beer Sunday (Week 668)!

As usual, I have a planned theme for today. Here in PA, we get distro from seemingly everywhere & it is tough to keep up with all of the newest releases. It is even more spectacular that they are coming to us in CANs for the furtherance of The CANQuest (tm). Let the fun CANtinue! 

From the CAN: "Minn Made"; "Genuine All-Malt Beer"; "Extraordinarily Uncomplicated."

I have known a couple/few Minn maids, so I will toast them following the Crack! Thus acCANplished, I began a nice, slow, easy Glug which still produced a finger of fizzy, foamy, tawny head without any coaxing on my part and with decent retention. Color was a gorgeous solid-Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had that clean smell of biscuity, bready, honeyed malt that always makes me think of fresh biscuits drizzled with honey. Mmm. Standard? I wish! Mouthfeel was medium, big for a Lager. The taste was both honey-sweet and Noble hops-grassy/hay-like. It was a very clean, non-adjunct laden Lager that used to be the Pre-Pro Standard, but is usually NOT the case in this day & age. This was wonderfully tasty & quite quaffable. Finish was semi-dry & highly refreshing. I CAN easily see drinking this one on a hot, humid summer's day. Well done!

Pours a clear golden amber with medium, persistent head.
Smell is malty with some faint floral hops.
Taste is a smooth blend of malt and grain. Earthy with a dry/bitter finish.
More lager than amber, in a good way. I found this to be an excellent lager.
