Why have i not tried this one? I pass it up all the time thinking i’ved tasted it before. Pours a dull straw yellow colour with a medium sized white fluffy head. Immediately on the nose you get grain, pear and hops. Taste is sort of bland for me. Very malty- again noticeable hops, but just not enough going on.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Aroma: Faint corn and grass aromas. Appearance: Very pale straw color, thin white head, lots of lace. Flavor: Initial sips are crisp and heavily biscuity. Mellows out to grass and cornbread. A little tangy on the font, a little dusty on the finish. Palate: Moderate carbonation, rather watery.

Pours a hazy pale golden with a tiny filmy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet, peaty, light malt and astringent bitterness. The flavor is corn, light citrus, grassy, pepper and light honey. Abrupt light sweet finish. Light bodied, creamy texture.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Appearance of lightly cloudy honey with a small soapy head and some visible yeast. Aroma is yeast and lemon. Flavors are corn, mandarin orange, caramel, and spice. Not an exciting style and this beer fits right in.

Nice, and I agree with the prior rater that I’d take it over Spotted Cow. From the tap at Beerfest in Chilton. Nice and smooth, with a pale yellow color.

12oz bottle from Three Cellars. Pale yellow, thin head, macro look. Sweet malt aroma with lots of corn & some fruit in there. Peppery finish to go with a taste of sweet malts & corn. Goes down pretty easy, little to no bitterness. So-so.

A thin scum of a white head sits on top of a very pale yellow body. Hot dog is a smell I have never described in a beer before, but there’s always time for a first. There is also a cooked corn note, but not in the off flavor type. The taste is bread crust with some potatoes. A little bit of black pepper spice comes through in the finish. It tastes a lot better than it smells. I wanted to like this one more.
