COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Wisconsin Lager at itís finest. Harking back to an era where Supper Clubs were In Vogue and Wisconsin had numerous regional breweries making their version of American Style Lagers. You know, back when these types of beers exhibited regional soul. And many of these beers were enjoyed during an evening spent at a local Supper Club, visiting with friends and family and having a good dinner. Supper Club is an eminently drinkable version of a true American Lager. Featuring a greater depth of refreshing malt character than the mass marketed versions of the style, Supper Club is clean yet satisfying.

badgerben (4762) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Gold color with a small head. Light corn and skunky aroma. Very light corn and grain flavor, rounded out with a healthy dosage of skunk. A bit of grassy hop.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Pours a beautiful golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of cereal grain and soap. Flavor is also of grains with slight hops in the background. This is not a style of beer I would usually drink, but, for some reason, I really like this beer ALOT; an excellent representation of the style. This takes me back to when I was a kid and would sneak drinks of my dadís beer!

tmoreau (3413) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2010
A full 12 oz. bottle sample to a shaker at a Glunz. Distributing tasting at the Beacon in Forest Park, IL. after the CBS picnic in Chicago. Presented a clear, light golden hue, with a modest, white head, and fleeting spots and streaks of lacing. The aroma was light grain, a touch of corn, and a typical lager nose. The flavor added low hop bitterness, light malt sweetness, with good carbonation in a light body. It is what it is, a clean, sessionable American style Lager.

nearbeer (4610) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2010
12 oz. Clear orange-golden with literally no lasting head. Sharp corn and dry grass aroma. Flavor is the same with some grainy toast and honey. Light body is balanced and finishes crisp. Reminds me of High Life, with more spicy hop and corn sweetness.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a straw golden with a sudsy white head and nice looking carbonation bubbles. Aroma of pale grains and sweet corn. Light bodied, but surprisingly not watery or prickly like other pale lagers. Flavor of cereal grains and sweet corn with barely detectable hop bitterness. Better than macro versions, but still pretty boring and perhaps a tad too sweet.

heemer77 (5234) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Deep, bright amber with lots of fast moving bubbles. There is a slightly off white head on top of the richly colored body. The nose is a little grainy with some bread crust and potatoes. The taste is largely raw potatoes and beets. The finish is grainy with bread crust and a little bit of bell pepper. Good for the style.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Pours a crisp golden color with a thin bubbly white head with a few streaks of lacing. Aroma is almost like a fart - grassy and cow soap. Taste is light, cereal and grainy malts, with a light citrus grassy hops.

cbfobes (2880) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap, pours a golden color with a thick white head, aroma is of corn/grain and is very sweet, the taste is fairly bland and has a sweet touch to it, overall I think this is overpriced for what you get.

Wheatyweiss (29) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Poured from a twelve once bottle into a czechvar glass. Pours a medium straw with a decent head that recedes to a cap and laces adequately. Aroma is of light malt and toasted bread with honey. Light noble aroma, slightly floral. Crackery malted notes dominate. Flavor opens with well attenuated malts. Flavor is of hard tack bread and sourdough biscuits. Middle brings slight hops flavor. Hops are light and slightly bittering with a bit of fruitiness, but not well represented which I donít expect out of this style. Finishes dry even though the malt is heavy in this brew and a bit sweet. Hops actually finish with a flavor that I can only describe as floral, like rose hip tea. Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonation is a bit high. There is a bit of a light mouthfeel given the flavor, but I think tis is what Kirby was after with this brew. Overall I will say that this brew is a PERFECT bridge between BMC and light BMC to a good beer. This is what a lager should taste like and the malt is excellent in this one. This beer is flying off the shelves, and I have heard this first brewing is sold out, and I can tell why. This is a beer for macro drinkers that think that this is close to a macro, but isnít. The biggest thing I like about his beer is it has what other American Lagers donít have, flavor. I do think that other reviewers have been extremely harsh on this beer and have not rated it according to style, which it is excellent in itís style guidelines. I hesitate to rate beers really high. That said, based on the style this is a HOME RUN. Keep it up Kirb. Reviewed on: 04-24-2010

Pours clear gold- yellow color with a white head. Aroma of cereal grain. I imagine it being mush better served out of the can. I found some tin hints.
