Had this on draft at the Stone 9th party. Clear yellow with a nice, slightly sweet flavor. Far superior than the pale lager crap you see every where. Nice brew

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.

Sampled at the brewery...thanks Patrick! 18 karat golden color with a 1/3 inch ivory foam that left a descent amount of lacing. Nice, slightly herbal and bready nose/flavor with some grassy elements. Also showed moderate fruitiness. Didn’t get the heavy corn influence you would guess from the deScription. Somewhat sweet for the style but really enjoyed it.

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.

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.

Draught. Bright golden. Clean roasted corn and nuts in aroma. Quaffable palate, with clean yet distinctive sweetness. Nice stuff.

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.

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.

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.
