Released in 1997. A pale beer that wonderfully quenches thirst on a hot summer day and warms during the winter. A taste with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. 10.5°
Formerly 11°

It’s not bad, but by no means is it good. This is a very average lager tasting beer. From Russia, with not much love.

Note to Cornfield: Sounds like ’yer pivo was really lightstruck. You’ve gotta go for the ones waaaay in the back at Bridgeview. You and me are the only ones buying the "weird" stuff.

Dortmunder? Don’t kid yourself... this is simply another European pale lager. Very pale yellow with a big white head settling as a small cap. Dry, grainy & vegetal/grassy aroma with (I have to admit) a larger malt profile than I expected. Flavor is sweetly malted with an average bitter finish and a touch of metal. No real surprises here. Except that it’s a Dortmunder.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Sorry, just too much corny skunk involved with this brew. Golden with a good head, initially, it has a sweet, sweet corn and malt aroma... but one that’s aged in the sun too long. Fortunately for the drinker (me), the thing is watery, the flavor limited. Limited to corny sweetness and way too few herbal hops. Sticky, metallic finish. Oh boy.

Poured a pale golden color with little to no head. Aroma had some citrus/floral notes. Flavor was bland, but not offensive. Rather watery and light finish.

Pale yellow, cloudy white head. Malty nose. Fruity (apples). Palate turns to quite watery in the finish. No hops found.

Ernest (7321) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Kinda industrial and thus not clean enough, but not horrible either.

bottle: these beers are all the same, corny, grainy, adjuntcy, hints of lager yeast. Cream corn taste,here. Bland.

There is really absolutely nothing more to say about this brewer or these beers Look at the other ones I’ve rated for details. Crap. Total crap.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Medium gold colour. Bready aroma with herbal balance. Still kind of macroish, mind you. Similar palate with rye bready malt notes balanced by herbal hops.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Light golden color with a moderate off white head. Even for the lower ABV this one seems to have a light aroma. Nose of old grass and pale malt as well. Dry chalky start leading to a powdery grainlike sweetness. No real malt character, but drinkable.
