Ballast Point Lager

What the brewers say

"With 100 percent 2-row barley and a light touch of Apollo hops, it's a clean-drinking beer with notes of honeysuckle and light banana."

What our panel thought

"Greets you with a welcoming whiff of herbal coolness, a little Vicks, a little peppermint, maybe some eucalyptus. That carries through to the flavor with an added bit of chalkiness. Finishes clean, semidry, and maybe with a touch of alcohol heat. It's intriguing and likely a beer that people will either love or hate."

What our editors thought

"A beer for those who want to forget the beer they're drinking. Playing a short stack with definition and character, it limps in and folds quickly."
