2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Pour on tap at Old Chicago, slightly hazy yellow with white head, aroma has notes of grain, cereal, grass, some biscuit, fairly clean but not much to it. Taste, cold, is decent with hints of grass and biscuit, touch of grass, cereal, hay, finishing fairly sweet and slightly dry. Not the worst, but not much to it.

Superior, Co. - Superior Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Brilliant, medium gold pour, quickly fading white head. Aroma is grassy with hints of fresh lake water. Flavor is crisp with some nice creamy, buttery notes, a hint of honey sweetness and a bit of sweet cake mix goodness. Crisp mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazsy gold with a fine-grained, white head. Nose is sweet and spicy -- cardamom coffeecake. Crisp and fresh on the tongue, but somehow has a big hole in the middle; the initial wash of flavor doesn’t carry through to the back of the mouth. Finish is oddly bitter. Starts promising, but ends poorly.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pale clear yellow, with very minimal sugary sweet aroma. Nothing complex on the nose. And nothing complex on flavor. Almost no flavor at all. Hint of bitterness, and mild sweetness. But it’s so light bodied, you could play beer pong with it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, very pale golden yellow color with straw cored hues and 1.5 finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and spots of lace.
Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, grass and straw . Subtle spice with bready yeast, apple and pear. Faint alcohol.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with slightly dry earthy hops and some zesty spice. Peppery with pale malt, earthy grass, straw and crisp, light fruit. Hints of apple and pear as well as some banana and subtle alcohol. Crisp, clean and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Euclid Hall - clear golden pour - I have to say that there are no true flaws in this beer, really, unless you count being boring as fuck a flaw, in which case, then yes, this beer is seriously flawed - little to no crispness or hop character - zero malt character - it’s just kind of...there - your brain registers that it is drinking something, but that’s it - it is possible to make a beer this light, but still full of crisp, snappy, spicy/hoppy goodness - this has not happened here.

Clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of grain, corn, and slight hops. The taste is grainy and corny, but without off flavors. Light body. Decent.
