Draught at Father’s Office. Without even knowing the commercial description, this beer screamed "corn" at my from first sniff. The thing is, it tastes like if a corny macro lager was actually good. Cool stuff. Hoppy, spicy aroma, with sweet corn and a fruity, yeasty element. The flavor has sweet corn, grainy bread and a medium-bitter, hoppy finish. Higher carbonation fits the style but is a bit much. A pretty interesting beer, but maybe not up to a great pils with the same craftsmanship.

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.

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.

Tap at The York. Heavy corn element is correct. Very creamy mouthfeel and nose. Not my favorite, but blame the style. This execution is almost German.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2011 On tap at Monk’s Kettle for a Craftsman dinner. What a great pre-prohibition lager! Full flavored. Light yellow and clear with nice white head. Crisp aroma and flavor with some corn as well. Tasty!

Taster at the Stone 9th Anniversary Festival. Purported to be a pre-prohibition style lager, I found this to be quite interesting. Definitely a lager but with some more palate and flavor than modern brews. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Clear gold beer with a nicely retained white head. Pleasant aroma, grass and flowers. These grassy notes are also present in the flavor, but so is a bit of that metallic macro-lager off taste. Very full mouthfeel for a thin-bodied beer.
