3.75/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours light golden with a half-finger of white foam that soon fizzes out.

Smells of lager yeast with some green apple and herbal hop.

Tastes a half-step up from a typical yellow lager. Good herbal hop flavors, the malt is crisp and crackery, and there's an appley fruitiness that makes things interesting.

A bit full and slick in the mouth. Low bitterness. Needs more carbonation, and the flavor wears on me a bit by the end of the glass. Still pretty decent so far as a cheap, basic lager goes.

Hazy gold with three fingers of white head. Splotches of lace appear as the head drops.
Smell is pungent hops with a cracker malt.
Taste is herbal hops with cracker malts.
Mouthfeel I light with good carbonation. Finish is dry and balanced.
Overall an easy drinking well made lager.
Canned on date is 11/07/18.

12 oz can from Trader Joe's, poured into a flute.

L: Nice golden honey. The head was relatively substantial, helped no doubt by being poured into a flute. A lacing always remained. I noticed that it may have been unfiltered or top conditioned as it was cloudy in the last pour.
S: Some metallic hop bitterness. Sweetness. Banana peel.
T: Started off a little too bitter, metallic. But it opened up, softened a bit. Metallic faded away. Sweetness, soft bitterness, and banana peel remained.
F: Good sparkle on the tongue. A light feel.
O: I liked it. I was impressed.

12 oz can from a 6 pack from Trader Joe in Salem OR
$6.79 a six
:Pours the typical pale yellow American Lager..small plotchy off white head.
Very honey malt aromas..pleasing..some caramel.
Taste is the same very honeyish and lush yet not overly sweet..slight floral hop..actually very nice really.
The mouth feel is full yet well carbonated..very smooth.
Overall a very very nice lager,,this one is not a throw away light lager..it has substance..far better than it should be.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz canned 11-7-18
1" white head with large, uneven bead...falls to a cap quickly leaving behind some patchy lacing. Pale yellow-gold, not quite 100% clear.
Subdued nose, slight sweetness there - cereal, corn...perfumey. Very light spicy hop aroma.
Sweet grain and minimal breadiness. A spicy hop finish keeps some balance. Very simple. I don;t agree with the Pilsner classification.
Medium body and carbonation. Some sweetness and a super quick finish.
It's ok, I'll pound through this 6pk. Great price - another one suited to 6 or 7 months from now as a patio pounder.

Euphony Lager has a very thick, off-white head, a hazy, golden appearance, and heavy glass lacing. The aroma is of rich barley and grassy hops. Taste is similar, with lots of grain sweetness and a heavy dose of bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Euphony Lager finishes crisp and gulpable.

I don’t know about you but sometimes I just need a lager. And this is one of the better ones. Nothing out of the ordinary, nothing unexpected, just very pleasant easy drinking. And $5.99 a sixes at Trader Joe’s. What’s not to like?

12 oz can from TJ. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Bready malt and herbal hops combine on the palate. Finish is long and dry. Good, easy drinking brew.

Misc.: Canned on Sept. 10, 2018 at 9:08 a.m. CT

Have generally liked each of the five beers I’ve had from Campanology, giving Adventurous Stranger a 3.94 in April 2017, Tintinnabulation a 3.64 in June 2017, Every Time Buche De Noel Stout a 4.22 in Dec. 2017, Caco-Phony a 3.70 in Oct. 2018, Clamour & Glamour a 3.42 in Oct. 2018 and For Whom a 4.18 in Oct. 2018. Was labeled on the can just as a, “Lager.”

Poured a light amber clear color with 2-to-3 of frothy off-white head. Lots of fast moving bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very bad watery lacing. Below average retention. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled Noble hops, grain, Honey Nut Cheerios, pear, hints of green apple, grass, white cracker and sourdough bread. More of the same from the can, maybe more grain and malt. Was digging the smell for what it was. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted at least as good as the nose. Wow. Got spicy Saaz, black pepper, Noble hops, grain, pear, apple, white cracker, sourdough bread and Cheerios. (Taste - 4.25)

Light body. Thin texture. Lively carbonation. Clean, crisp finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Wow. Just an awesome beer for the style. I hate to use the word crushable, but this was crushable with a bit of spice. I’ll be grabbing some more of this. (Overall - 4.00)

Aroma is grainy malts and mild sugar/almost skittles. The flavor is malts, mild fruit and a smooth/slightly sweet finish. Uncomplicated but still unique enough to stand out.

For the style, very nice flavor. Light, slightly cloudy color. Nicely balanced hops. Very drinkable, goes well with most food.

The fact that it’s reasonably priced is just gravy. My new go-to weekend beer.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance
Clear light Gold, low head retention, no lacing.

Aroma
Crisp malts, grassy hops. What you would expect.

Flavor
Ditto on the flavor: crisp , dryish and generous hop flavor and balancing bitterness. crisp, dry finish.

Mouthfeel
Light, low CO2, kind of hot, but no astringency.

Overall
A good domestic version of Pils. Buy this one at Trader Joe's. Worth the money.

3.38/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours like a cream soda witha slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a creamy, white head. SRM of 9. (4.00)

Aroma: Strong aromas of corn and adjunct malt. Lots of malt liquor. (3.50)

Flavor: A little lemon followed by corn, rice, and rubber. Lots of adjuncts here. A sweet corn and honey malt profile on the backend. Just a lot of corn and adjunct. Finishes slightly sweet. (3.25)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Light on carbonation. (3.50)

Overall: A little dissapointed by this beer. Lots of adjunct flavors. Corn and honey. It has the body and sweetness of an American Blonde, but the flavors of a macro lager. Might as well be drinking a light macro lager. (Final Rating: 3.38)
