look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Mostly translucent straw color with lots of effervescence and a very thin white head.

Aroma: A mix of crystal/pilsen malt and a little bit of corn sweetness. Not much to this aroma.

Taste: It definitely fits in that Euro Pale Lager style. Lots of real malt flavor and sort of a wet grass and biscuit taste that you get with others of the style. It's a pretty sweet palate because of the malts but there is a bit of hop presence to help balance that. There's not really any bitterness but the hops add a nice crispness to the palate and the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with lighter carbonation than you'd expect given the bubbly appearance. Real easy drinking beer.

Final Thoughts: This beer is as advertised; a micro-brewed lager. They seem to have followed common sense and left out any adjuncts. There are some real nice flavors in this one that stay true to the style. While it isn't more that just a slightly above average beer, it's still a far cry from the macro-lagers that elude all conventional wisdom and fly off the shelves.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours a very bubbly straw gold with a finger and a half of fizzy white head.

Smell- Tart apples, grass, straw, light grains

Taste- The taste is strongly led by the grains and grass flavours, which carries through into the finish, and is then followed by a touch of apple.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. Crisp and dry finish.

Overall- A simple Euro Pale Lager by Mill Street. The flavours are not complex, nor should they be. This brew is kept clean and simple, making it a refreshing summer session brew.
