Brewed with 8% flaked maize, hopped with Willamette and lagered for 5 weeks. NC 17 is one big, big beer!

Draft at the brewpub in Seattle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Sweet, grainy aroma with lots of corn and a delicate floral hop presence.  There’s also a light fruit presence with some apple and apricot.  Has characteristics of a malt liquor but the hop and light fruit notes improve the aroma.  Surprisingly hop forward with some sweet citrus, lighter fruit notes and some nice dry bitterness that’s followed by a pale malt backbone.   Sweet grainy notes are subtle and  surprisingly only evident toward the finish.  Sweet corn/adjunct notes are kept in check.  Dry finish.

Pours orange with little head. Smell is sweet and grainy. Taste is sweet, straw and alcohol. Didn’t want to finish it. I guess it is good for the style?

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2011 Draft @ naked city; light gold and clear with thin white head and lacing as it fades; light lemon, white sugar and pale malt; smooth and sweet aromas; dry malt, stale lemons and crisp, sugary finish; not much here in terms of a malt liquor IMO; crisp malt, dried lemon peels; kind of bland overall with sticky malt; hard to believe this is 8.8%; smooth, slightly sweet

Nose of toasted malts, some residual fruitiness, sugars, light corn, a touch of hops. Pours darker golden, thin head, not much lace, some chill haze. The flavor is toasty and sweet with hints of corn, some nice fruity notes, residual sweetness throughout, somewhat like lagered ale yeast. Nice and smooth, balanced, drinkable. I had two. Good stuff.
