Though by their own admission is not exactly to style it does fulfill their purpose. Very drinkable lawnmower beer with more body and a good hop malt balance yet malt forward. The rye is apparent.

16 oz. can. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is cereal malts, light citrus, minimal herbal hops.....taste is light cereal malts, barest hints of sweetness, light citrus, primarily grapefruit, finishing with the bares wisp of hop bitterness. The citrus notes are not to style. There are also no corn notes. The style is usually quite insipid , while this on has a modicum of personality. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5

16 ounce can. Pours a pale gold with a decent white head. Mild aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is malt, grain, and citrus. Nothing too exciting here, but nothing bad either.

On draft at Toro Burger in El Paso. Sweet, grassy, slightly skunked aroma. Flavor is mild and sweet, with a little vanilla and grassy hops. OK.

Light gold, good slightly off-white head. Mine was quite cloudy and had a nicely thick palate. A decent bit going on with this beer made it fun to drink.

Straw in color with a quickly disappearing medium head in pale color.
Nose is faintly sweet with no hop character present.
Medium body with high carbonation and lots of sweetness is, I'm told, atypical for the type but not unpleasant.
Rye and malts come through clearly in the palate and the high carbonation leaves a clean sensation appropriate for a summer day.

Can. Pours a hazy gold with a high, lacy, mashed-potato white head. Not much nose to it -- what there is is generic corn syrup, cereal, aluminum foil, and corn. Sweet and malic on the front of the tongue -- good mouthfeel, I can tell the oats are there, but I can’t pick up much rye or hops at all and the carbonation is too low. There’s very little ale character to it; it’s acceptable but bland. Finish is short and forgettable. Too mild and too tentative.

Pours a golden color with white head. Cereal grain, bread, and some earth on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied.

Cedar Creek. Apollo and Bravo. It works. They dialed it down from the EPH, and it’s a great beer at a great price.
