Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear bright pale gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like corn, creamy doughy malt, grassy, and straw. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like creamed corn, doughy malt, straw, grassy, buttery.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
Very pale . Light, grainy with nice sweetness late. Better than Corona, its inspiration, by far. Served with lime.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Served with a lime wedge. Straw pale. Hard to aromatize but it seems clean enough. Malt character comes through pretty well. Is clean, balanced, and decent for what it is.

3fourths (8796) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2011
draft. clear pale yellow. empty, flavorless, watery up front with basically rice and pale corn flavors developing over a fizzy and empty body. twangy and oily late, tastes like a poor substitute for your dad’s rainier.

drjay44 (3087) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2009
650 ml. bottle. No lime. Pours a pale thin head with no lacing, over a pale yellow body....nose very minimal, some malt, some corn.....tastes of corn....very thin watery and light....unable to really evaluate balance because of lightness.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Pale straw. Grainy, "beery" malts. Hints of bread crust lingered. Rather strong bitterness, with grass and plants. Hardly any bitterness (unbalanced in that respect). One-dimensional and unexciting.
