Light in color, this American style domes-tic lager is made using the traditional rice and corn cereal decoction method, result-ing in a beer that is clean and crisp.

This poured a straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma was light malts and some corn. Flavor was lots of corn, some other adjuncts and light malt and slight notes of grassy hops. Good for the style but that’s about it.

Clear pale straw body, small white head. Nose definitely has a corn note, but other than that it’s pretty clean, light herbal hops. Taste is dough, light corn, grass and light lemon. Medium/light body is round with moderate carbonation. If the corn (which I can’t stand, even in bourbon) was less prevalent, I’d give this something closer to a 3.5

Very pale straw colour. Thin head. The nose is light with a little bit of graininess. Light grassy aroma as well. Very light bodied with a bit of lean crackery malt character. Meh… it’s okay if light lagers are your thing, but they aren’t really mine.

Tap at Blind Tiger: Very pale yellow with a white film of head. Vacant macro aroma- some cereal grains, corn and mild pale malt husk. Light body with a very simple flavor. Mild pale malt grains with notes of corn, mild vegetal notes and hardly any discernible hop character or bitterness. Adjunct ridden, but fairly clean. Very boring.

On tap at the Blind Tiger at their Kuhnhenn event. Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Light grain and barely a touch of hops. Not much going on aroma or flavor wise, but very inoffensive with no huge grain notes and just a touch of sweetness. Really refreshing though, and probably a fine lawnmower or poolside beer. For as bad a score as I’m giving this, I’d certainly drink this again given the right circumstances.

Pours a light gold with a white head that dissipates quickly, light malt aroma and taste, some hints of corn, I was hoping for a little more, ok for drinking with food.

Likely the best swill lager I’ve ever had. Draft at the brewpub. Clear, light and refreshing. Everything bud light should be.

On tap at Kuhnhenn. Basic American? Euro lager look. Corn rice notes, Good lager, light fruitiness. easy drinking. Nice temporary escape from huge beers

On tap at Kuhnhenn. Color is very pale gold with minimal head. Aroma is very faint, of corn and rice. Hardly tastes like anything, it’s so mild, with a hint of grain. Crisp, watery mouthfeel. Just OK.

On tap at the Kuhnhenn Brew Pub. Poured a medium and clear golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of corn, grainy, and some cereal. Tastes of corn and grainy. It is a Pale Lager...
