Pours a nice golden color with a bit of fizzy head. Had this after I had a Special Export and the two beers are miles apart. Nice hop malt balance and very crisp flavor. Nothing spectacular, but if you’re on the lookout for a nice pale lager, this is a great choice. Fantastic lawn mower beer.

ChainGangGuy (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a tired, tiny, white head. Smell: Some hints of floral and spice and pale malt -- all in all, it’s pretty basic. Taste: Pale maltiness with just a hint of sweetness. Floral, spicy hops. Taste of sour graininess. Medium hop bitterness lingers into the finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks.

Pours a golden honey color with a white head. Aroma is honey, grain, malt, and some spicy hops. Flavor is malts, grain, and a slight bitter finish.

Pours light amber with a slight head and slight lacing. Very under carbonated. Slight smells of malts and light hops. Weak flavor not worth my time or money.

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottled. Poured a clear, cool shade of light-medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft with some caramel and light fruits represented.. light floral accents.. pleasant. The flavor had sweet pale and caramel with fainter light fruits and a bit of orange.. honey and light adjuncts on the finish.. rather tasty. Lighter-bodied with OK balance.. creamy carbonation and a lightly bitter finish.. refreshing.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2007
This pours a deep golden body with a slender, vanishing fizzy head. It has a grainy aroma, sweet with the distracting smell of candy corn. It has a bready malt flavor with a bit of caramel and a quiet metallic bitterness. Drinkable, but I’m glad I did a single bottle purchase.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Flanagan’s in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a light coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white bubbly ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, some corn grits, roasted nuts and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with a sour dough and slight bitter flavor. Finish is nutty and malty with a mild bitter aftertaste that slowly disappears. Nice to see another Wisconsin Pre-Prohibition label has been revived.
