I picked this up in a mix 12 pack along with 9, HiPA, and Hocus Pocus. It comes in a green bottle with what I would call a "russian" look to the label.
I drank this straight from the bottle so I don't know the exact color but it was definetly a light color as the bottle was translucent . I can't write much about this beer as it wasn't something I would enjoy more than once. If you like Heineken you will like this beer.

i guess that i'm a little partial to this beer. when i lived in burlington a few years ago, this was a staple in my fridge. due to availability, it's suprisingly hard to get in my area. so on a trip up to burlington recently i picked some up.

appearance: true pale golden yellow

smell: nice balanced smell of hops with slight spice. not overpowering,but definitly not offensive like so many others can be.

taste: very smooth. nice hop bite but not overpowering. refreshing. a perfect substitute for any of the big boys you see everywhere.

this beer is extremely drinkable. maybe has more of a summertime vibe but is more that welcome in my fridge anytime of year.

I bought a bottle of this off the single shelf at Giant Eagle just down the street. It poured a clear golden with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had nice pilsner hints. The taste had sime saaz hop. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

One of four offerings from a "Spring Break" 12-pack, I was pleasantly surprised by this tasty lager.

The beer pours a very nice head but with absolutely no staying power. It does however have good lacing down the glass. This was the second of the four offerings from the box that was more carbonated than I like and not much in the terms of a distinct scent. In fact, it didn't have much of any. In the end, it was a flavorful lager which I find much better than most.

Mother Lager | Magic Hat Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick head, spotty lacing, and a clear medium gold amber body.

Smells like slightly-sweet honey biscuit malts and full-bodied grains.

I taste bright and clear malts with that tiny bit'o'honey livening up what could've been yet another bland lager. Crisp and clean finish.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll choose to give Mother Lager | Magic Hat Brewing Company a 4.25
