Found this one bottled at Binny’s Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois. Actually spoke to the brewer of this beer, so that was a nice treat. Light golden pour with a lacy white head. Sweet, grassy nose which continued into the body as clover honey and butterscotch. Very clean finish. A bit understated, and a bit underrated in my opinion.

Sample from a bottle at Binny’s "Fall Festival of BEERS." Sweet nose, light, nearlt clear straw in color. Thin pour. Hints of honey in flavor. Way too mild for my tastes, but the brewer was forgiving of that.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma of grain and sweet malts. The flavor is slightly sweet and grainy. Thin body, crap brew.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours a transparent bright pale golden with a thin covering of thin-lacing white head. Mostly dry, grainy and bitter aroma has some floral noble hoppy notes and lager character. Body starts clean and lightly sweet with some biting carbonation and a thinner, smooth, but dull finish. One of the better examples of the style that I’ve tried, but that doesn’t say much.

A very light drinking, palatable, beer. A very refreshing brew, that will taste really good on a hot day.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2006
Pours light golden with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a lot of corn present. The flavor is mostly corn and sweet banana malt taste. Not much to desire here, but for an all day beer out at the beach, it’s better than most light/macrobrews.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Wow, another brew from Huber. Straw color with a modest white paper colored head. Mild DMS and sweet grainy aromas. Light malt liquor flavors abound. Light white grapes, mild grain and a touch of herbal hops. Something else to boil my brats in.

Wow, this beer got me as excited as a rectal tooth extraction. Seriously, it’s MGD in a fancy bottle. Drinkable, but not good.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Yet another bit of nasty subcontracting perpetrated by Joseph Huber, this one under the guise of the "Harborside Beverage Group ." This smelled so badly that the young fellow tending bar at Palmer Place both gave me credit for the drink and bought me something else. Gold in color, skunk in aroma, and sweet corn in taste. Sticky sweet finish. Nasty crap.

After doing some reserch found that this is contrract brew from Huber. Decent enough taste reminds me of old Old Style and Huber. Which is good and bad all in one. This would be good one to introduce to your friends as a everyday beer.
