When most people think of Iowa, they picture flowing fields of grain for miles and miles. Created by a third-generation farm boy, Farmer Johnís Multi-Grain Ale is amber waves of grain in a glass. A refreshing, blonde ale, it features a base of two row American barley malt along with a large portion of wheat malt, a small dose of rye malt and un-malted oats, corn and wheat.
Lightly hopped with English East Kent Goldings hops chosen for their subtle, earthy qualities and finished with Czech Saaz hops for their sweet, floral essence to create a beer thatís light in body and color, with a velvety texture and an aroma as sweet as a freshly cut field of hay. Farmer Johnís captures the endless bounty of Iowa in a easy-drinking, blonde ale.

Looks like a cloudy urine sample, mild sweet taste. Expected to hate it more.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was hazy bright straw yellow with a bright white head to match. The nose was doughy with some walnuts. The taste was a little bit of bitter orange peels and some bread crust. A long lingering finish was pleasant.
