Plain, brutally so. It tastes probably like a buttery version of what high life tasted 100 years ago.

Ughsmash (7136) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Soft German style aroma emanating from the thick golden body. The flavor is pretty bland but smooth and has slighty sweet malty finish. Very drinkable and mellow, but not much character.

Cornfield (5482) - 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 Iím glad I did a single bottle purchase.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Flanaganís 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.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2006
The body is dark gold with a white head. The aroma has some light grass and burnt cookies. There is also some light carrots. The taste is metallic with some carrots and raw dirty potato skins. A strange lager that could use more body. Too much carbonation and this finishes like seltzer water.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Dark straw color with a white bubbly head. Very light pale malt aroma with a hint of spicy hops, but then again very light. Flavors of light sweet malt. Fairly dry finish. A somewhat typical lager.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 17, 2005
12 oz bottle. Medium very clear amber, smallish drying white head...very light, indistinct caramel nose with a bit of dry grass...clean, balanced bitter-sweet body, full front and watery finish...OK.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - 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, itís 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.
