Aroma and taste are both focused on biscuit and bread, caramel and cherry. The dry finish has some floral and citrusy hops, but balanced, not bitter. Relatively light body with ample carbonation. Essentially an easy drinking Vienna. I hope this is a big success for Fulton.

Reviewed off a sample bottle (full bottle), and I look forward to buying a 4 pack of tallboy cans.

S: medium to medium low spicy, floral hop aromas with a hint of pine seasoning light malt.

L: beautiful, brilliant copper amber with streams of bubbles rapidly rushing to the surface to produce a thin, sudsy white head that rapidly reduces to a film.

T: wide array of malt flavors ranging from doughy bread to light biscuit roll over the tongue. Malt and hop spiciness combine and there is a faint fruit note. It starts with a light sweetness but by mid-palate hop bitterness grows to medium leading to a crisp dry finish and a lingering malty bitter aftertaste.

F: The body is medium to medium light and the carbonation is medium.

O: It is a flavorful, easy to drink lager brewed for those who want more than fizzy yellow beer.

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.

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.

Deep golden, one finger off white head. doesnt look like piss water like most american lagers of this ilk. Smells of sweet malt and Floral hops. The taste is lots of grain, wheat/corn? again backed up by slight floral hops, just a touch of bitterness but its hidden behind the grain. At 4.5% abv this is an everyday easy drinker. Im very impressed and will probably always have some in my fridge. Absolutely a winner

Look - Medium orange color. Off-white head, pillowy, with good retention.

Smell - Grainy, toasted bread, spicy, herbal hops. Smells like Vienna lager.

Taste - Medium sharp bitterness up front, earthy, spicy and herbal. Sweet grainy finish with a lingering bitterness.

Feel - Medium carbonation, could be a touch higher.

Overall - Good drinking beer and a great value at $5.99/4-pack. This will join Wonderstuff as a go-to local lager for me.

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.

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!

Fulton's Standard Lager pours a clear copper color. The head is a solid cap of white foam that lingers awhile. The aroma has some light caramel, some toasty mat, and a whiff of floral hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but much more pronounced. The mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with appropriately ample carbonation. Overall, this is a really well made beer. I can see myself drinking this on a very frequent basis.

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.
