Our lightest beer we brew that goes down clean and smooth, a quick fix to a thirsty day. Great with burgers and fries or soup and a sandwich...

Strykzone (6764) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear gold with a white ring. A honey aroma and flavor. It is very lightly hopped. Some grain is tasted and that adds a nit of earth. Feel is thin. Just not much going on here.

574deadzone (1379) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Sample in a flight. Very golden with a small eggshell ring. Subtle noble hop nose with light malt influence. Absolutely one for those unsure of or new to craft, and as such it works. Of course itís nothing for the beer geek, but I could see how it would be poundable with some smoked meats.

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 19, 2010
Draft @ Mackinaw Brewpub. Clear golden colour, small white head. Nose of hops, some malts. Flavour is slightly malty, a bit hoppy and slightly bitter. Fruity. Indistinctive.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is medium sweet caramel malt, thatís it. Flavor is sickly sweet and grainy and lemon. Light body, active carbonation. Meh.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2008
<i>Draft at the brewpub:</i> Golden pour with a nice creamy head that lasts. The nose is quite undetectable, with only the slightest nuiances of a light hopping present. The body only offers a touch more with light notes of grassy hops, heavy carbonation and delicate caramel. Finishes clean and is quite quaffable. This seems to be made for the masses and is quite approachable in that sense.

alexsdad06 (9148) - Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Draft sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden with a small alka seltzer esque white head. The aroma is lightly citrusy and cornbread. The flavor is light citrus, corn, grains, and bread. Light bodied and underwhelming. I didn’t expect much and didn’t get much.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a transparent pale gold color with a tinge of honey, topped with a quickly dissipating head of fizzy white. A mild citrusy hop character freshens up the canned corn aroma that oozes from the glass. Light bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel with a slick, oily texture. I wasnít expecting much flavor after reading the description, but this didnít deliver on the promise of "clean and smooth", or a "quick fix to a thirsty day". Excessive DMS. Vegetal blah. Drinkable, but limp on the palate with little flavor to hide the creamed corn and little crispness to be refreshing.
