Tap poured a clear golden color with nice white head. Aroma was clean lager yeast with a hoppiness and corn. The flavor was well balanced with a dry lager finish. A sharp crisp bitterness and a bit of corn fit right into style without being to powerfull. Good one. ELDERPURPLE (11) - USA - NOV 20, 2006
I hated the corn aftertaste. I don’t like corn, so that is probably why. But the sensation is very strong. The beer looks quality though. Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - JUL 15, 2006

Brilliant golden straw in color,modestly carbonated which lends to a good dense head. Nice clean aroma with a good hop presence. Medium bodied. No diacetyl, nice hop/malt balance, crisp and refreshing, finishes dry, quite pleasant.
Nice light grapefruit and hop flavor. A little bit of sweetness balanced this out just right. A pleasant surprise. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Had this on draft at the Stone 9th party. Clear yellow with a nice, slightly sweet flavor. Far superior than the pale lager crap you see every where. Nice brew

Taster at the Stone 9th Anniversary Festival. Purported to be a pre-prohibition style lager, I found this to be quite interesting. Definitely a lager but with some more palate and flavor than modern brews. Pretty good. johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - FEB 26, 2005
On Tap. Sweet and smooth taste, but nothing very special. Tastes like sweet corn, though it’s nowhere near as watery as most pale lagers. It’s kind of a boring style, but this seems to do its best with its ingredients. Little bit of bitterness in the finish, but it’s mostly sweet corn in the taste of this one... argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Creamy white head atop clear straw body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, yeast, bubblegum, white pepper. Taste is medium sweet, bubblegum, some herbal, light caramel, light alcohol. Medium-full body, some crispness. A very good beer -- I had this on tap at Naja’s, with no idea it was made with corn until I saw it mentioned here.

This beer has a lightly sweetish corn aroma to it, but it is backed by a solid maltiness as well. The taste is sweet, smooth an creamy. The finish then abruptly kicks in with a solid hit of bitterness that nicely balances the front of this beer. This is quite a good commercial example, it is sharp and biting yet smooth and creamy, with a hint of clean sweetness to it. This is quite enjoyable, and I wish there where more commercial example of this style out there. Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2004
Grainy nose with grass and noble hops. Solid pils malt flavor with earthy bitterness. Solid and refreshing mouthfeel. Finishes with more hoppieness and grain. A nicely done lager, wish I could find more around socal.
