Drinkable - I had this one on tap at Sippin’ by the River last Sunday (I think). It doesn’t stick out in my mind as one of the more memorable beers that I had that day, so I can only assume that it wasn’t the best (nor the worst). heemer77 (5362) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle courtesy of Duane. Bright gold body. The aroma is cooked carrots and some fresh apples. There is a hint of celery salt. The taste has fresh green beans and some spicy black pepper in the finish. There is also a bite of grass. A nice rendition of the style. Jayb0 (1227) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2006
yellow-y color but decent head saves the looks. I wonder whether there is a quality issue as the ratings seem to vary widely. For me I find I rate CH higher than the averge everytime. A pale lager with hop and malt character. Herbal notes in the nose, citrus and biscuity. refreshing. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
(12 oz bottle: Obtained 06-May-06 in trade with Otter, thanks Jeremy!) No mistaking the malt flavor in this beer: it tastes like corn husks, but at least it is somewhat balanced by a pleasant, grassy, mildly bitter hoppiness. Corn remains the focal point from start to finish. Body is light-medium and carbonation is moderate, but because of the body and lagging hoppiness, the beer isn’t what I’d call crisp or clean or refreshing. What it is, is tasty. The aroma is dominated by corn husks, with a hint of citrusy, grassy hops in the background. Medium straw-colored body is slightly hazy, but that doesn’t inhibit the ability to see the scattered streams of carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The whitish head that rose to half an inch during the pour gradually has subsided to a very wide ring, leaving spotty lacing around the glass. A nice beer, rather flavorful, but you have to not mind a husky beer. Bock Knocker (15) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2007
Poured a mellow golden with a decent white head. A sweet floral aroma. Flavor is sweet and it goes down smooth. Easy drinking lager that is good on a hot summer day.

From the tap poured a golden color with a fair amount of head. Flavor was sweet with a quick finish. jason (1836) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle. Poured a pale golden body with thin head. Aroma is light hops. Flavor is a little grainy with a low crisp hops taste. Smooth and good for a really hot day. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a moderate white head. Mild aroma of grain, malt and a bit of grassy hops. The flavor is very similar with grain and malt followed some light hops bitterness at the finish. Not an exciting beer, but not meant to be either. Better than its overall average score.

(Old BA rate - bottle)
Poured with a thinner pure white head; poor retention; clear yellowy macro gold color. Grassy hops; freshly mown lawn; earthy; biscuity dough; mineral ending aroma. Some malt sweetness; grassy hops show up in the taste as well; to be quite honest there’s not much going on here; macro inspired, but at least a little more tasty. Light; crisp carbonation; palate cleaner. Not bad at all actually; would take this over other US/Euro macros for a lawn mower brew. Overall, bland and uninteresting, but at least no off-flavors and decently drinkable when cold.

Clear golden with a white head. Malty, light fruits, and some grassy, hoppy notes int he aroma. Bubbly mouth. Flavor is much like the aroma. Really not much in the way of flavor, this one seems like Cricket Hill’s shot at BMC. Decent.
