Site of the Neil Armstrong Air And Space Museum. Wapakoneta is the hometown of the commander of the Apollo 11 space mission, who became the first person to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.

To be perfectly honest, if I didnít know it was a lager, Iíd think itís an ale. Itís a cloudy gold color, similar to a hefeweizen. Nice head, very good lacing, and a little bit of bitterness. It almost tastes like a milder version of Great Lakesí Grassroots Ale. Itís got that kind of muddled herby citrusy taste to it. A very dry finish, too. Itís good, but not great. Honestly, the novelty is the most appealing feature.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and had fair lacing. Moderate malt, grass hop and grain aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium grassy hop sweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle. Body is a little bit of an orangish gold with a thin head. Aromas of corn, skunky hops a bit of soap... not very nice smelling stuff. Flavor makes me wonder if something has gone terribly wrong on the bottling line. Gak! Off-putting tartness with vegetable junk and metal. Iíll try this again down the road, but it is inconceivable that this has gone bad in the short time that it has been out. Shame... oh, shame...
