3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 that’s 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.

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.

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. I’m really not a fan but he definitely hit the mark as far as my understanding of the concept.

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 didn’t even know this was a lager (mostly because the guy at the tap didn’t know what it was when I asked...shame...) so I had a glass of 1903. Very tasty for a lager. I don’t think that there is much more that can be asked for in a lager...

Wow, I did not expect this in a lager. Nicely balanced hop and malt character, it begs to be drank! Brewed in honor of a local establishment’s 50th aniversary and sampled on site, it was a pleasure to drink a pale lager that has some colour, flavour, and character. The brewer mentioned that it was in the pre-prohibition style.
