We’re celebrating. “Celebrating what?,” you might ask. American beer. Or maybe the crossroads of American beer on a large scale and American beer as it’s known by the growing legion of craft beer drinkers. “Why don’t you make us some Merkan beers? Not another one of those crappy import craft things.” OK! Made in the tradition of American Beer Mediocrity, this beer is anything but. Crisp American Pilsner malt and clean corn and rice deliver a dose of Cascade hops, the most classic of the Merkan craft beer hop varieties, to you in this light refreshing, yet unapologetic trashy beer.

Growler shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is dry grassy, toasted bread and grainy with a mild earthy hoppy character. The flavor is toasted grains, grassy, earthy hops light bitterness to the finish.

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated light yellow colored body and a good lacing. . The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

tap at Brewhaven festival - Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. It has a light, grainy and bready malt aroma and sweet, grainy malt flavor. It’s light bodied, and well... not horrible, but it’s trashy alright. Meh.

Draft. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy balanced aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration.

Growler to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks decent; a transparent yellow with low carbonation and thin white lacing. Smells pretty good; pleasant and hoppy for a beer of it’s style. Tastes okay, but not as good as it smells. Mouthfeel is average. Not bad for the style!

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewery tasting room (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a richly pale and well haze straw hue, light and white grapejuice hued with a frothy brighter white gentle head that dies to a small film, laces ok. Aromas are touches of Pils maltsn bread, and straw. Gentle dry earthy and grassy hops, touches of fruity sweetness show some apple, gentle citrusy hops give some lemon, florals. Not bad. Initial is lighter bodied, a touch sweet up front, apple and gentle pear, doughy sweeter malts are subtle but bigger when compared to the light body of the brew. Touches of straw, gentle spice. A kiss of melon and gentle bitterness as we move into middle and backend, with pils malt softness, touches of bitter hops, a touch fruity and soapy, with mellow florals, grass and touches of perfumey elements as we close out and linger on. Gentle spice, mellow sweetness. It’s light and drinkable, but I wouldn’t call it clean. It has a bunch going on but not in a bad way. Interesting take here.
