3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Creamy white head atop clear straw body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, yeast, bubblegum, white pepper. Taste is medium sweet, bubblegum, some herbal, light caramel, light alcohol. Medium-full body, some crispness. A very good beer -- I had this on tap at Naja’s, with no idea it was made with corn until I saw it mentioned here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a lightly sweetish corn aroma to it, but it is backed by a solid maltiness as well. The taste is sweet, smooth an creamy. The finish then abruptly kicks in with a solid hit of bitterness that nicely balances the front of this beer. This is quite a good commercial example, it is sharp and biting yet smooth and creamy, with a hint of clean sweetness to it. This is quite enjoyable, and I wish there where more commercial example of this style out there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Grainy nose with grass and noble hops. Solid pils malt flavor with earthy bitterness. Solid and refreshing mouthfeel. Finishes with more hoppieness and grain. A nicely done lager, wish I could find more around socal.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright golden appearance, streams of carbonation, decent head formation. Fairly clean malt aroma. Medium bodied palate, sweet malty, slight bubble gum flavor. Seems high in alcohol. Mostly clean with a touch of fruitiness and spice. Somewhat exportish, a simple style pretty well made.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draft: O’Brien’s in San Diego, CA) Nothing special here; A very sweet, American pilsner that has balance between a moderately malty flavor and somewhat bitter hoppiness; The malty flavor is mostly that of sweet corn, however and isn’t in the same league as the better European pilsners; Medium bodied for a pilsner; Has a sweet "beer" nose"; Yellow/pale golden in color; Absolutely no head when poured; A few large carbonation bubbles rise through the beer when disturbed, but generally it appears fairly still; However, it has a well carbonated mouthfeel
