I’ve been drinking this stuff since I got my first fake ID. It used to be brewed by Schoenling, in Cincinnati. There once was a red ale version that was my favorite. It was gone for a few years but is back and tastes the same. I like it. However, I think some of the negative reviews result from the fact that it doesn’t seem to have a long shelf life. I suspect that the farther you get from the brewery, the skunkier it gets. You need to get it fresh. Anchor Steam is kind of like that.

SG111 (1266) - New York, USA - JUL 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 Bottle at Green Dot Stables, Detroit. Straight outta the bottle. Aroma is mild cream soda sweetness, some weird funky maltiness, ehh. Flavor is like a skunked cream ale. Wow that ain?t good at all. Quite bad.

A good little cream ale smooth drinking taste good would recommend. Would be nice if it came in a bigger bottle.

ContemplateBeer (1996) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Aroma: Grape cough syrup, very light hay. Appearance: Still light yellow with a thin white head that went away entirely. Flavor: Grape drank, slight hay underbelly. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, flat carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Not as bad as I made it sound, but wouldn’t go for it again.

decaturstevo (5779) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Sweet corn with light malt. Clear golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet corn with a touch of maltiness. Sweet start a dry middle to a semi sweet lingering finish. A touch of floral notes at the end. No oxidation. Light bodied with pretty good carbonation. Light refreshing beer with no off tastes smooth. My bottle was fresh as a daisy no oxidation no off flavors

Bif (2041) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a light golden color with a fair head. Aroma seems a bit musty with some malt sweetness and quite grainy. Taste of malt sweetness and plenty of grain. Easy bitterness and fairly dry finish. Light body, light crispness and a bit creamy. Not as bad as people make it to be, but it is what it is. Might be the last of the beers served in a "Pony Bottle".

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2013
7 Oz bottle, gold with white head. Aroma is sweet and corny. Taste is lightly sweet and corny, faint fruity flavor, pretty clean finish. not horrible.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
7 oz green bottle from Anderson’s, Dublin, OH. Thanks, Dad. Biscuit, corn, slight skunk. Minimal white head, heavy carbonation. Malty, corn, bland, sweet. Skunk is barely there and unfortunately more skunk would be a significant improvement because it would be something more than flavorless. Can’t think of more than a handful of beers that are worse than this.

Strykzone (6719) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Light golden and thin. No head. Aroma of forn and light malts with skunk. Flavor is thin with little going for it. A little effervescence. Not a lot happening.
