Pale, straw yellow body with slow rising carbonation; relatively thin yet sticky and frothy white head. Decent grassy and herbal smell; dried grass. Light cereal grain flavor; some dull spiciness; balanced amount of mild hoppiness. Light body; crisp; very soft malt sweetness.

A decent American lager, relatively light and feathery.

As the craft beer community look for oportunities to shine in a crowded market, they also look for ways to reach a broader appeal. The American adjunct lager is well adapted to reach an audience that couldn't care less about big bitterness, haze, gravity or bold flavor of any kind. And this is how Avery Brewing Company rolls with an adjunct grain riddled lager.

With a ripe and roaring cereal grain aroma, notions of tortilla chips, cream of corn and a husken sweet scent gravitates toward the nose along with hints of apple esters, sulfur and a hint of floral hops. Pale straw and cast in a faint haze, the sufficiently named Avery Lager crowns with a light and loose froth. Gentle grain sweetness of fresh baking bread, sourdough and honeysuckle come along with the promised cereal character for a simplistic yet straight forward taste.

Much the same transpires across the middle palate as the sweetness resonates somberly but long into the late palate. All the while the hops turn from floral and fruity to spice with pepper, grassiness and an overall herbal nature that closes with a mild bitterness of parsley, hay and lemongrass. A rise of green apple and mild sulfurs mingle late in taste for an earthy, pungent and brisk taste.

Medium bodied, the beer's persistent graininess plagues the finish with raw grains, soil and stewed corn. A minty cool finish eases into a short aftertaste of light hop bitterness and yearning to order a better beer next.
