Look: pours light copper. Off white head. Very clear.
Smell: smells like a lager. Spicy like a rye beer. Sweet caramel.
Taste: definite spice. Caramel popcorn. Spiced like a rye IPA.
Feel: slight dryness. Leaves a light film on the mouth.
Overall: ok beer. Tastes similar to a mass market beer. But has some added spice and sweetness to it.

Pours slightly hazy brown/amber with a one-finger dense white head and nice lace. Muted aromas of toast, grainy malt, caramel and grassy hops. Nice balance in the flavor profile of the grassy hop bitterness and the caramel/toasty malt. Medium body, average carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a nicely balanced finish. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 20, 2014
A copper body with a tan head. Aroma had a nice sweet caramel malt presence upfront. Notes of corn and some biscuit. A slight peppery note and a generic hop bitterness. Flavor was initially sweet, corn malts were more pronounced and the mix of hops and spicy peppery notes were nice. Thin body and easy to drink. A good beer but needed less corn in my opinion.

Dark red pour from bottle at Killmers. Tons of head. Malty and earthy. Just ok. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2014
I picked up a single bottle at the local grocery store. It gave a good-looking pour into my Larry The Git-R-Done Cable Guy glass. (Not sure where I got it from, but it’s roughly a Pilsener glass.) It has a deep bronze body with a three-fingered creamy head. The bits of lace are slippery, leaving the glass clean. The aroma is pretty much caramel corn and little else ’cepting some well water. The flavor is much the same, but has the addition of an earthy bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Probably my last.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Thanks to Dad for this. Overall pretty decent, less hoppy and more malty than Anchor Steam, the aroma I couldn’t get over it smelled a little like those lollypops that my pediatrician used to give out years ago, with the loop instead of the stick.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 PIlsner glass. Amber color and milky head is an eye-pleaser. Leafy, citrus smell. Nice and saison-y. Unfortunately the scent doesn’t follow through, the taste is super hoppy and not at all fruity. Kind of caustic. Wenchesnmead19 (1) - Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2014 does not count
Delicious and unique. Crisp and malty with a punch of fruit at the end. Much tastier and complex than your average lager. Christpuncher (3251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2014
A really heavy ale from argus in Chicago Has a bitter Dinah and smells malty. Had this one at kilmers house
