Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 This is a fine looking brew, but then you’re left with your basic dead skunk in the middle of the road, and it’s stinking to high heavens.

This probably tasted better for me because I was drinking it in a Tapas Bar last night. But yeah it’s not very inspiring,however you can taste the maize in it.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
Blond color. Some malty aroma and bready taste, quite high bitterness. Ordinary and not particularly interesting. Sweeter than the average South European Lager.

skaughty (643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Yep. We have a (paper bag) dry and mildly hoppy lager here. As far as adjuncts go, I’ll take the corn in this one over rice any day.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow color with an average-sized white head. Nose of toasted grain. Bitter finish. Lightly sweet malt flaovor with some hops.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours a yellow/orange color with light carbonation and a bubbly head that dies quickly. The aroma is of hops, grassy and fresh (hints of fruit). The taste has a slightly sweet start with a dry finish. No midsection to this beer. The mouth feel is smooth and light with a dry finish and lingering bitterness. IMHO: I could not finish this beer. The taste was very one-dimensional with little redeeming character.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Thick cottony head on a golden body with tons of carbonation. Vegetal aroma of corn and light grass. Tastes sweet, malty, corny and lemony with a peppery hop quality. A basic bland adjunct-laden lager.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Dark gold/yellow pour with a creamy head and nice lacing. Nice sweet malts. Some earthy as well. Mellow hop aromas underneath it all; slightly spicy and floral. Some nice malty flavors. Crystal malts and some pils maybe. Though it’s probably two row. Slightly peppery hops and some floral. Sticky palate that coats the mouth and a fairly thick body. Finishes off a bit cloying and sweet with a small hint of pepper.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Decent golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was decent light malt and hops with a mild fruit presence and kind of sweet.The taste was nothing special,but decent at best.malty and sweet with a mild hop presence and the fruit aroma escapes me in the taste.Not bad but definately could be better.Decent summer brew at best and at worst just a brew for that one time trial.Nothing special.
