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.

It was so hot this September day (91) that I drank it straight from the can. A very clean, cracker malt aroma. Very simplistic flavor of clean and crisp malt that seems like a Pils sans hops. Has a bit of zest to keep it interesting. Refreshing with light carbonation.

Poured from a can into a lager glass

Pours a red-amber, but not like an alt. More like a cross between a red and a light lager. Excellent head that quickly dissipates. The lacing is a bit lacking, though that's not unexpected. Still, it has a very nice color and plenty of big inviting bubbles. A fine looking lager.

The aroma is all malty grain, ranging from light toasted biscuit to clean grain-bin powder. Some suggestion of adjuncts is present, but not offputting. Hints of pepper and spice. Clean and crisp. Nothing spectacular but solid.

The flavor is a step below the aroma. More macro-like in this respect, though still quite a bit better. A nice range of malt flavors, again from "raw" to "toasted," but very muted. Hops are a little there, but don't quite get "there" in the balance department.

The mouthfeel is a little watery, but otherwise this is a great warm-weather quencher. Light, clean and crisp with plenty of, but not too much, carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid lager.

Standard Lager pours a copper color, with a small, but lacing head. Big roasted malty aroma. Taste is smooth and sweet. A nice roasted flavor, on a big malty backbone. Very smooth. Overall, no frills smooth, sweeter and toasty beer.

Amber/red???

White head. Golden color. Lace left.

Grainy and bready. Earthy hops. Pilsner like. Very clean. Basic, but nice and drinkable.

A great addition to the Fulton lineup. It'd be nice if they canned their Pils, but this will do.
