Joseph James Craft American Lager
In my beer of the month club selection was a bottle of Joseph James Craft American Lager. The beer pours a pale straw color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel, malts, and light lemon. The taste is malty with a lemony bite, but not a great deal of complexity. The alcohol content is 5.2% ABV. For being a craft lager, this was rather pedestrian in flavor. While it is light years ahead of the “big boys” in corporate America, it doesn’t quite cut it when compared to other craft beers.
