COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late summer brings some of the best in local produce and Joe has made the best of it with Cornucopia, his farmhouse style ale brewed with Iowa Sweet Corn. This was one of the first brews he made last year to appeal to the locals around Knoxville and it was met lots of enthusiasm. Originally, it was informally called Iowa Corn Beer. Over a couple of pints last spring as we were planning our fall, the name Cornucopia was thrown out, probably by Joe, and it stuck. Itís catchy, fun and a little silly. But donít let the name fool you, this is a beer that serious beer people love!

Bottle. OMG, I donít like this one at all. Clear golden-yellow pour, no head to speak of. Weird corny, chemically thing going on here. Not my thing, and that is all.

Clear, dark gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, planty corn, dry fruit, some bready and light earthy funky yeast. Flavor is reheated corn on the cob, toast, bready yeast, weird spicy heat (maybe a little fusel alcohol) and a little cereal and planty, herbal hops to the finish. Medium body with a syrupy, oily feel and medium carbonation. Better than I was expecting from the description, but not really my thing, very corny.

Hazy gold with an off white head. Smells like fancy feast cat food!!! Taste is better, sweet corn, spices, and more fancy feast at the end. Medium body with good carbonation. Yummmm...cat food

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours pale yellow with no head at all. Nose is lightly spicy, pale malt and a bit of corny graininess. Lightly fruity. Taste is about the same, with some mineral notes, light spice and a long grainy finish. Real interesting in the mouth...kind of sticks to the tongue.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle from pepsiedcan. Thanks! Pours a pale copper color with absolutely no head. Flat...darn. The aroma is corny and sweet. Kinda woody, too. The taste has some heavy corn influence. Interesting beer, just wish it had some carbonation.

Pours a golden color with little head aromas of hay and corn, light body with a bad corn taste, will not buy again

12oz bottle thanks to pepsiedcan, pours a hazy gold with a decent white head and spotty lacing, aroma is oddly like cream corn with a little bit of yeast, the flavor has a little bit of fruit on the front end with a crisp finish, a little different but nice.
