Oakes (14963) - 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. I’m really not a fan but he definitely hit the mark as far as my understanding of the concept.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2010
On tap at Hamilton’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. This is a very light beer in body. It has a certain sweetness. I can tell there’s lots of corn dextrose here. It’s sort of fun in a retro beer way.

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!

I finally got to try this local lager and it was exactly what I thought it would be - a lager. I’m in no rush for another, but my dad loved his. I’m a big fan of Craftsman’s other beers, this one just isn’t getting me excited.

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.
