Draft. Golden beer with a white head. Low malty, light hay aroma. Malt, hay, spice, and grass in the flavor. Medium bodied. Crisp and refreshing. Malt lingers with hay and some sice.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 On tap. Pours with a large, white head and a deep yellow body. Head is long lasting. Aroma is sweet, with some grains and maybe a bit of banana. Taste is lightly corn with some vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel.

Wow thatís a bad original rating. Re-rate: Clear golden yellow, somewhat pale, white head slow to fade. Aromas show a light hop element, some bready malt, light corn sweetness, very very low levels of DMS. Clean yeast wise. Flavors show a light fruit note, low hops and sweet bready, malty, cornbread. Lightly sulfury. Clean, light crisp. Bitter to balance. Dry and light. Very drinkable.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap at Mammoth Bluesapalooza 2008. Had a sweet malty/grainy aroma. Hue is golden with a small white head. Flavor has an initial sweetness followed by a spicy/crisp hoppiness. Pretty mello brew a good thirst quencher during the dusty afternoon. All and all a pretty good brew but there’s lots of other better versions of this, still pretty good session brew.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
Golden-straw colour. Grainy, creamed corn nose. Canned corn, grain and a hint of hop on the palate. Reasonably dry despite all the residual sugars. Iím really not a fan but he definitely hit the mark as far as my understanding of the concept.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Draught. Bright golden. Clean roasted corn and nuts in aroma. Quaffable palate, with clean yet distinctive sweetness. Nice stuff.

Draft - An excellent lager full of malt flavor with a crisp bitter finish. Very nice dough aroma with hintsd of spice. I really enjoyed this beer. Could and did drink this one all night.

I didnít even know this was a lager (mostly because the guy at the tap didnít know what it was when I asked...shame...) so I had a glass of 1903. Very tasty for a lager. I donít think that there is much more that can be asked for in a lager...

20th and final sample Stone Anniversary Fest XI. Pours yellow with no head. Nose is a typical lagery corn sweetness. Taste is sweet, nice and overall pretty tasty.
