22. Thanks, R! Awesome unexpected treat. Pours a clear bright medium gold with a loose and sudsy white head. Mild sweet grassy nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel on the mid palate with soft sweet grassy notes over that. Gentle finish. Nice one.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate soft hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy, malts, yeast, lightly fruity, mildly doughy bread, soft. Not bad for what it is, but not very exciting.

12 oz pour on tap at T-Bock’s, Decorah, IA. Pours a clear bright golden yellow with a lasting white head and full lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with corn, lager yeast, dough, and slight tropical fruit of pineapple and papaya. Flavor is same - overall sweet and bready with lingering fruity finish. Thin bodied, bright lager carbonation. An enjoyable lager.

tmoreau (2472) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a fairly clear, golden color, with some soft white, bubbly head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was lightly lagerish, soft malt, a little earthy, with a bit of corn & husk scent. Light bodied, a larger sample may have showed better liveliness, but softly carbonated, with lightly peppered, very low hop bitterness. Quite sessionable, but average, light lager faire.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at Dexter’s Pub in Madison, on GTMW eve. Mostly hazy golden, slight orange color. Pretty hazy, for a lager. Maybe the haziest "lager" I’ve ever seen. Thin white head. Leaves pretty decent lace. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Smooth and easy drinking. Good bready kind of doughy malt. Lightly peppery pils type finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid, well-done full-bodied lager. Pretty hearty and satisfying.
