COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Bavarian-style lager that blends malt and hops together in a very smooth and drinkable way.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2008
On tap at the brewpub: Poured into a Pilsener glass, this had a deep gold body and a decent white head that hung around for a while. It had a sweet grainy maltiness in the aroma with more of a suggestion of grassy hops than a real hop presence. That’s pretty much how the flavor worked, too. This seemed to be a more substantial lager than what folk had reported in the past, but I think it needs more hops to balance it out.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 It is not saying much when I base my ratings on the ’’’’least offensive’’’’ of the group. Of the 3 I tried this was the least offensive. Does that mean it is good, no. But of the beers I tried at the brewpub this would be the one I would drink again, under pressure. Nothing to detract or enhance this beer, very average. A pale lager in all respects.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pour is deep golden yellow with a thin off white head...smell is lightly grassy but pretty strongly toasty....taste is lightly sweet an toasty with some faint grassy notes....a nice example!

Headbanger (3275) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2008
12oz bottle(9/99)-A golden body with a nice white head and an aroma of light hops and sweetness. Taste of the same and finishes dry. Not the best golden.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Had this beer on 6/22/2000. Aroma is like cotton candy. Color is a hazy gold, with good carbonation and a light head. Taste is just bad. Starting with light/medium body and no flavor. Finish is like sweet plastic. Overall I rate its just bad, don’t buy this beer.

drywallman (328) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2004
This one had the expected clear golden color with just some lacing (sampler glass at the brewpub). Very little malt note and some grassy lightweight hops and a dry finish. This was designed to emulate the biggies (bud, mgd, etc.) and it does.
