Wow! Iíve been looking for this bugger for the past two years. Thanks to oetiii for keeping this one buried in his fridge for almost five years. Pours a clear pale golden brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates clean due to its long age. Aroma of light waffle batter with a hint of maple syrup and a touch of corn. Taste is light to medium bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, a hint of maple syrup and brown sugar, and some citrus zest. Finish is semi-sweet with a gritty texture and a mild maple/wheat aftertaste. Beer is well past its prime would have like to try this one fresh.

Had this beer on 10/7/1999. Aroma is is very faint and there is no maple to it. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and head. Starts with a light body that goes down bubbly. Finish is a light malt flavor that is backed but a faint maple taste. Its an ok brew but a bit too light all the way around.

Bottle. Pale yellow. I donít like wheat beers. I donít like really sweet beers. You can guess how this will turn out. Aroma of moldy bread and pancakes. The first assault is from the sweet maple sugary taste, followed by the nasty wheat funk. You may like wheat, I donít. Not the worst beer but a beer that is too sweet, heavy and bland and watery (I donít know how you achieve that), and funky canít get my admiration.

What a throw-back... pours cloudy golden yellow... typical pointski aroma with a light maple presence. Stronger maple in taste.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aromas of bread/grains/ and some maple. Had a taste of yeasty grains with some spice and to much maple.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Has to be an old bottle, with all of the suspended particles. Light brown in color with a cloyingly sweet maple aroma, this is a tough one to drink. Way too sweet.

To sweet for me, the pour was light caramel in appearence. Tried like hell to want another one of these but would have to say no thanks.

So I was up in the Steven's point area, and found out a friend I know up there had one of these in his fridge (mind you, this guy still has a pull tab Old Milwaukee unopened hiding in the back of his fridge). I was in heven, as it is one of the ONLY point beers I haven't rated. The bad thing is it hasn't been made for about a year, so it tasted somewhat old (somewhat being an understatement), but at least I was able to rate it. YEA!

Light in body but the maple was sickeningly sweet

Gee, I think this stuff is pretty good. The maple flavoring is subtle but adds a nice touch to this otherwise average beer. Iím not big on flavored beers but this one tastes quite decent to me.
