3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ the Brickhouse BBQ - Now here’s a beer that’s better than the sum of its parts. Pours amber with next to no head at all. Not too much smell -- real grainy and sweet. Tastes pretty pleasant, like a macro with a bit more grain and a bit of lemon. Really easy to drink, and would go great with a burger or ribs. I could drink a ton of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light yellow gold in color,aroma,of cereal grain , and corn adjunct,slightly richer then the BMC lagers its trying to impersonate. Flavor is the light grain, bread dough,,little bit of hop flavor and bitterness in finish, just a teasing hint of grain sweetness, no use trying to be overanalytical here ,this is an easy simple beer,meant to accompany a Wisconsin Fish Fry,and while it is a regular American Lager,finishes just a touch smoother,and more flavorful then the standard macros. This is a great beer to serve to your marco loving buddies,so they can proclaim,look I’m a beer snob

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. I had no idea what to expect from this. Luckily I didn’t expect much. Average looking piss yellow pour with bright white head. Some lacing on the glass. Nose of grass and grain. Low carbonation inhibits thirst quenching ability. Some bitter hops in the background. This isn’t bad, but there is nothing special about it. And it’s wayyyyyyyyyy fucking overpriced. Few brews are worth 8 bucks a sixer. More places need to sell singles so one can try a beer without having to buy an entire 6 or 12 pack. Not only that, this site needs to have a rating included for VALUE. This beer is not a value. It is not worth eight dollars a six pack.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Pours a clear, golden color with a small amount of fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal grains and light grass. Very nice palate for the style. Light malts, honey and corn in the taste. Crisp and dry finish with a lower carbonation level than you may expect. No major flaws here.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold, white head, temporary lacing. Faint creamed-corn aroma. Flavor has some full bodied grain character to it, buttered popcorn and a bit of whole wheat spiciness to it. Not off, but definitely odd, and not what I was looking for. Medium body, drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Poured a clear gold color with a white head. Smelled of corn and hay for the most part, but there were also whiffs of grass and pretzel dough. Light bodied and slightly sweet. I tasted caramel, corn, and grass. Pretty straight forward classic American pale lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest 2009. Clear straw yellow with a medium white crown. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet pale malt and mild skunkiness. Taste of grassy hops, toasted grains, sweet malt, not my pint of ale… Finishes up mild astringent and crisp.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the OF. Filtered yellow-tan color. Minimal patchy head. Pale malt aroma. Relatively straightforward stuff. Creamy and smooth, with just a touch of balancing hops. Medium bodied, lots of yeast flavor. A good Lager all the way, though a touch buttery.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A lot of people seem to be down on this one, but not me. To me this was a very good, clean, crisp, well balanced lager. Good aroma, malty flavor, and decent mouthfeel. Refreshing for a hot day in the sun or with a good burger or other meal. The name fits well. Not my favorite capital brew (or even lager, for that matter), but highly enjoyable. Give it a chance while you still can!
