Tap at the brewpub. Hated this. Clear pale yellow pour. Small white head. Buttered popcorn, almost boozy, not good at all.

Tastes just as good as the original in 1954. Nice, all-around beer for everyday.

On tap at Bull Falls. Poured clear, bright, almost watery golden with a sticky, stark white head. The aroma picked up lemon zest over pale and honeyed malts.. clean, with a little more lemon as it warmed. The flavor found more honey at the core, with lemon zest and white pepper laced throughout.. heavier sweetness and meaty lemon as it progressed.. spicy and engaging. Light-bodied and refreshing on the palate.. higher carbonation.. easy-drinkin’.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the main beer stand during Marathon Fun Days near downtown Marathon City, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden gain malt, a hint of corn, some grassy hops, a touch of crystal malt/hops and some very faint white pepper. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and a touch of mineral water. Finish is semi-dry with a crisp aftertaste that quickly disappears. For a revived historical mid 1950s recipe this beer was a pleasant surprise.
