A lager only a mother could love. Itís a local version of the mass produced "beer" thatís popular on college campuses. But itís perfect for the ballpark when youíre offering some constructive criticism to your divisional rivals or for reminiscing with friends about the good olí days if those days had anything to do with the íburg.

Opens with a big nose of corn adjunct. Itís a pretty decent pour, clear but awfully light yellow, and a scrum of bubbles on top. Taste is less than inspiring for the story of a struggling local brand. A bit sugary and fusel, Iím pretending thereís some kind of hop balance there, maybe even of the Noble variety, but it just doesnít match up to even that little bit of imagination. Guess I should admit that those local brands that survived so long did so by imitating the cheapest aspect of the big brewers.

Pours a gown yellow with a white head and aroma of corn. Taste is awful, of corn and malt while very watery and light.

Beer at the ballpark. Typical lager. Liked the light better. Not awful though and better than the macros

Golden with a lot of bubbles. No real flavor. Taste like a mass produced beer from AB. Nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow with some uninspired head leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is sickly sweet, and has some rotten cabbage notes to it.
