UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Canned. I got a sixer to compare it to LaCrosse Lager, which is now being microbrewed in the original Old Style brewery. Even without a comparison, I could tell this was the loser. Corny taste among other adjuncts at work. Although there is... wait a minute... a hint of hops and yeasty lager taste poking through at the end. So not totally beyond redemption. Better than crappy Budweiser. Guess that’s why Wrigley Field switched to Bud: bad team, bad beer. Slight re-rate, Nov. 03: I moved it up a notch after having another, and finding it still does what it does best: get you happy in a hurry.

Can poured into a shaker glass. Pale gold color with a big head that quickly dissipated. Sweet corn aroma and taste.

16 oz can- Pours clear golden with a decent head that reduces. Aroma is corn, cheap grains, typical pale lager. The taste is sweet, corn, candy, grainy. About what i expected, the sweetness is a bit odd though.

Draft at a Polish dive bar in Chicago. i think it was called Mr. Z’s??? Flavorless pale lager with no character. Touch of sweetness. Corny, adjuncts, $1.50 pint. The best part of this experience was watching the 60 yr old blonde polish bartender (dressed like a Eurohooker) yelling in Polish at all the drunk Polish old men.

On tap in pint glass. Appearance: standard light lager appearance-- clear pale straw, thin white head, scant lacing, plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: some corn and lightly toasted barley Mouthfeel: light, crisp, refreshing Flavor: light barley sweetness, plenty of corn, maybe a tiny bit of hop bitterness Overall: it is what it is. It paired well with my burger and fries. Not exciting, but no offensive in any way.

Not good, but tastes like Chicago in the summer. Watery grassy corny. But one of my favorite of these macro lager sorts.

Not much to say here, but it feels good to be back in Chicago. Goes down like water.

canned, thanks to Art, old school grainy corn lager, nice clean sweet flavor, antiseptic aroma, mild thin palate

Tap. Buttery. Strong corn taste. Sweet. Nothing special here folks. End of notes from last night.
