This is one of the better pale lagers out of Wisconsin. Good malt and yeast flavor, with gold color. This beer has palate, and is a pale lager I would like to drink again. Thanks to Bob for sharing.

Pours a light yellow color with a small white head. Aromas of corn and sweet honey. Taste is of corn, mineral water, and a touch of sweet honey. The finish is not offensive.

Shorty bottle. Clear golden pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is corn and honey. Lighter palate with some carbonation. Taste is honey and corn as well. Thanks, Bob, for the bottle - glad I was able to try it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shorty. Poured crystal-clear, bright golden with a fairly short-lived white head. The aroma picked up honey and corn sweetness with not much on top of it.. non-offensive, but non-enticing. The flavor found sticky honey and a pinch of vanilla at the core.. light, tacky bitterness around, but non-identifiable.. a tad tart. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. prickly carbonation.. OK feel. Drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
207ml "shorty" bottle. Cost .49 cents, thought that was a bit steep but the bottle got me.
It pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head.
Smell has some grape and corn.
The flavor is fruity with some mineral water and corn. Maybe better than the original but this one seems over priced, normally I would put the blurb that this is the same as bmc but cheaper but this is like an expensive bmc.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
7oz bottle from Skyview, thanks! Clear straw yellow with a mammoth quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is skunked with deep roasted barley, malt, noble and grassy hops. Taste is metallic with burnt sweet malt and light hops. Astringent finish but tolerable for a pale lager.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Haven’t had the courage to try this again for years. Used to be totally dominated by butterscotch. Now I poured a decent white, foamy head that soon settles down and no lace. Color is a clear pale yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is sweet and beery with a little hop and malt. Flavor is where it falls down- it’s like the nose but way dominated by sweetness plus a little carbonic tang. Body is a little on the thin side with heavy carbonation. Finish is like flavor tapering quickly to neutral sweetness. Could maybe cook with it, but I won’t be having another.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This little 7 ouncer poured a clear yellow color with a distinct aroma of corn, and minnerals. Taste of straw, bread and corn throughout the drink. Not the best beer out there, but was pretty stoked to try this one out. Thanks ghostface!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours yellow-gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of corn, rubber, and a weak underlying doughy yeast. Flavor shows pretty much the same with some additional grass as well as overripe banana. Overall
body is light, grainy, and finishes lightly bitter. The 7oz shorty was almost too much.
