This draft brew from the brewery poured a large sized head of white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a very poor lacing. The body was transparent carbonated and weak straw yellow in color. The aroma was almost non-existent and the mouth feel was slightly tingly with a mildly astringent acidic flavor. This was described as a beer to make the Bud/Miller/Coors crowd happy.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2004
On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewing. Poured a small white head with fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent and the hue was yellow. The aroma was lightly malty and sweet with a sweet and malty taste. The mouthfeel was smooth and the texture was light. There was no lacing. This beer lacks aroma and flavor.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 15, 2005 Good yellow, bubbly pour. Small white head, and a very corn-like aroma with some light hops notes. Flavor is lightly sweet with a light metallic finish. It tastes very fresh and clean, but not overly flavorful as Joe points out. Itís too bad Kuhnhenn has to make this stuff to appease the BMC crowd that comes in. Itís a great beer for what it is, no skunky, sour flavors.

Made with rice, although come out very corn-like and grainy. Very clear yellow with fast rising carbonation bubbles. Seemingly popular at the bar tonight, this is so bland and corny that I ask the bartender just to pour mine out. An almost tasteless pint of carbonation.
