Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral sweet grain aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can... Clear yellow pour with a large, pillowy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a mingling of mildly toasted malts and spicy, peppery Euro-hops. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor leans toward the bitter side of balance, even at room temperature. Short, snappy, dry finish. Can courtesy of StFun!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Creamy barley malt and herbal hay aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head and mild effervescence. Sweet creamy barley malt, hay, and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Not bad - tastes like a hybrid of a German Pils and Helles.

On tap at Haymarket. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains and a bit of sweet fruits. Flavor has a bit of crisp grass with flora and a backing light grain.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Sun King Takeover (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich straw golden hue, near transparent with lively carbonation. A frothy whitish head atop wit good lacing, dies to a firm clinging film. Aromas are gentle bready and dry malts, with some Pils elements, gentle dryness, mellow warm bread, touches of dry earthy hops. Initial is lighter end of the spectrum as far as body, offering gentle apple and bready malts, some cereal grains, touches of earth grassy hops, gentle mellow yeast spice. A mellow front end leads into a sweeter tangy fruit middle, with apple, gentle pear, perhaps that is the popcorn. Finish is a bit more dry and earth, a kiss of vegetal qualities, mellow earthy hops. A more fruit slant on a Pils which seemed a bit odd.. It’s ok, but as far as style, I was a bit surprised.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster. According to the description at The Tap, this beer is brewed with Indiana-grown popcorn. Looks solid; a tcompletely transparent light gold with foamy white head. Smells of mild hops and pilsner malt and what seems to be a hint of popcorn. I could just be looking for it though. Tastes like it smells with a subpar mouthfeel that is dull and has no snap whatsoever. Eh.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Nose is light malts, some corn, some light bread, and some grassy hops. Flavor follows, not really popcorn-like, but plenty of corn in there. Light in body and lingering corn in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can. Pours a straw golden yellow pour with a thick, persistent white head on top. Nose is movie popcorn and spicy hop notes. Flavor is salty, mild bread and nice hop notes. Some butter. Some movie popcorn. The sweetness from the popcorn cuts into the dryness of the pilsner and that is actually counter intuitive here. However, the bitterness becomes more pronounced as you drink on, which helps. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Finishes somewhat sweet.
