Beer-judging sized sampler. Very spritzy and lemony. Has a thin head with some lacing over a straw colored, slightly cloudy body. Grassy hops, just a little sour, and a nice clean finish. Yeah, that pizza is pretty good (thin-crust on a cracker-style crust is Chicago’s “other” pizza, and they do it pretty well here).

From notes. Part of a draft flight at piece. Kinda plain and watery. A bit boozy, but drinkable.

Draft sampled at the brewpub. Pours clear pale golden with a white head. Aroma of light malt, grain and wort. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

Growler. Unfortuneately this beer gets pushed out waay too hard. Batch I got was one of the better ones. An extremely sessionable beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, grainy and biscuity malts with a decent straw and grassy hopping. Touches of citrus and spice in there as well. Flavor is better. Some grassy hops throughout with a crisp, lightly sweetened, grainy malt backing. A light bread, hints of citrus, and a touch of straw before this finishes fairly dry, lightly bitter, crisp, and clean before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a slightly above moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice beer that goes really well with pizza. Crisp, clean, and lightly bitter. Not bad.

Got a growler with their Sunday Special. Split the pizza and growler with the GF. Served in a pilsner glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow with a lively and bubbly body. A one finger pure white head forms on the pours and recedes to thin collar. Pretty standard. S: Standard kolsch yeast with a light grassy hop flavor profile, pale malts and little hay. T: The kolsch yeast hits you in the mouth right away and smooths out to nice light grassy hope profile on a pale malt backbone. The finish is light and hay-like. M: Very light bodied with a nice carbonation with a clean and crisp mouthfeel. Refreshing to say the least with a high drinkability. O: Easily drinkable with a balanced flavor profile. On a hot summer day this is a great beer. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 02-19-2012

Pale yellow pour, flat taste, barely an aroma beyond cheap malt. Doesn’t taste better than it looks or smells. Do yourself a favor and order anything else they brew, it’s a million times better.

Tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow pour, minimal head. Grain aroma and taste, slightly dry finish. Good for the style.

burg326 (3245) - Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2012
On draft at brewpub, poured a light golden yellow color, aromas of light lemon zet, corn, and some grain. Flavors are the same, light on the palate, ok beer overall, not the best on their tap list but decent enough that I would drink again.

Pours a clear yellow with a thinnish head on tap,at piece. Almost no aroma, but a slight alcohol. Flavor is also light, a bit watery and not much there. Decent and beer.
