2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Odd sweet maltiness in aroma, almost artificial. The flavor is sweet and funky, with a bit of spice. Strange idea for an ale, not the worst, but could be a lot better.

Straw yellow with a medium soapy white head. Aroma of corn, grains and malt. Thin bodied brew tastes like a corn tortilla with some sweet malt and light lemon. Semi dry finish with too much freaking corn.

You know, not too bad. It is an ale, after all, not a lager and it is that way. With an aggressive pour there was a good sized white head that soon settled down and no lace. Aroma was the best part- quite spicey, malt, hop. Flavor has some of that, malt comes out more, maybe some corn, a little chalk, and wet grain. Body is ok and thankfully so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. Straightforward, no frills, blonde ale.

I had this on tap at Sprechers restaurant in Madison, WI. Had no idea what it was. Served in a shaker, it was light gold and perfectly clear. Not much of a head and served with a lemon wedge. Tartness in aroma. I expected a very light tasting beer but found this to be quite tasty. Citrus dominated and very thirst quenching. Not a lot of carbonation.

A contract brew, god knows why they serve it at their establishments, but I nabbed a sample complete with lime wedge at the Lake Geneva location. It was pretty awful with plenty o corn and mineral water.

This one was different and the brewery thought outside the box. Not a typical brew for a brewery to do and sprecher did a great job. Much better than a swill corona or tecate. Golden color, smells citrus, served with a lime, no lace, light hops, light malts, great beer overall

Like an expensive bottle of Corona, nothing more, no matter what the fans tell you.

Courtesy of Skyview. Pale yellow color with a medium head. Light corn and grain aroma. Much the same for taste. Light bodied. Corn intensifies.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours hazy gold, very thin white head. Faint malt aroma, quickly fading to nothing. Flavor, very up front with some raw grain scuzziness. Oh my, this stuff has knockback power. After the initial reaction, there is some complexity here, creamed corn with a hint of bubblegum. Thin body. I wasn’t expecting much but this is actually bad.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Sprecher brewery north of Milwaukee, WI. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of corn, some grassy hops and a touch of butter. Taste is light bodied, flavors of golden grain malt, corn husk, and a touch of salt. Finish is crisp, a hint of grassy hops, a touch of honey and some subdued bitterness that quickly disappears. A touch better than the regular macro produced lagers.
