3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a transparent soft yellow body gave a one finger fizzy white head that lasted about a good twenty seconds and then died. Lots of small carbonated bubbles were seen rising. Some spotty, spider-webbed lacing was around the sides of the glass.
The smell had sweet corn adjuncts and rice, nothing off.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, creamy and smooth.
Overall, I’m surprised that this beer was actually decent. The mouthfeel was the best thing about this beer. I might get this again.

Bottle, mine labeled Rochester, NY, not Novato ... so I assume Genesse. Moderately golden, "normal" macro looks. Corny, bit sticky, definitely tilted toward biscuit and sweetness. Not offensive, but not exactly sexy, either. (#5249, 9/7/2013)

Has a lot of caramel flavor, or maybe not? Not really that good, but it is 6.2% alcohol, so...

Aroma is sweet malts and a hint of grains. The flavor is sweet malts, a hint of hops and a adjunct/metallic characteristic in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clear,light gold,short head leaving light froth and some lacing.
Nose is almost neutral but has some slight candy/bubblegum light carmel or butterscotch/slight grain sweetness.
Taste is pretty good,it has some solid malt,with grainy sweetness,some hop, a mildly dry finish with a light backing bitter to balance. Slight fruit also,but more of a buttery light carmel taste. Some heaviness on the finish which would be the 6% it has to let you know some of its richness. Not bad.
