I think this is called a "flagship" beer. It is a safe bet, and pretty representative of what Destihl has to offer. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Had at Destihl. Doesn’t really set it self apart from mass produced pale lagers enough. Serving: Tap jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2010
on tap-pours a white head and straw color. Aroma is light malt with some sweetness, mild earthy hops. Taste is slight lemon zest, light malt with some sweetness, mild earthy hops. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub (Bloomington, IL). Pours a nice pale yellow, a touch of haze, lively carbonation, dies to a ring film. Aromas are a mellow graininess, a touch of corn husk, cereal grains, cheerios, bread. Initial is similar, light bodied drinker of corn, cheerios, bread, crackers, a touch of stinky graininess, faint hopping in the finish. Pretty clean, grainy. A simple quaffable lager, fresh is the key though. Not bad. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - MAR 6, 2010

Pours a slightly cloudy, very pale yellow with a bubbly head constantly fed by effervescent streams of carbonation. Aroma is grassy hops, fruity esthers, and light grains. Flavor follows the aroma, with modest intensity. Lively palate. A boring interpretation of a boring style that’s sure to keep the non-beer-snobs happy when dragged here by their beer-snob friends or family members.
Mild corny/grainy aroma and same flavor with a nice hop kick. Pretty solid, rather creamy. User29624 (1683) - - SEP 7, 2008
The beer they brew for the Bud Light/Miller Lite crowd. Obviously this beer was fairly boring. Pours a pale yellow with a white head. Easy enough to drink, nothing special thought. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2011 At the brewpub. Pour is a fizzy pale yellow with minimal fluffy head. Nose is clean and a touch malty, not much hop character. Taste is a clean pale lager. Not much more, not too bad. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. The body is light yellow. The smell is light with a grainy grass aroma. The taste was Wheaties cereal with a fair amount of grassy hops in the dry brew. Good for the style. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2008
On-tap, served in a lager glass.
L: Clear straw lager golden with a frothy dull white head that slowly settled in a sudsy, bubbly ring, light amount of splotchy, dotty lace follows the body down the glass as I consumed it. A good looking start for this all-malt lager.
S: Toasted buttered french bread with hints of grassy grains, soft notes of spicy, floral hops at the edges. Simple, but effective nose.
F&T: The beer menu stated this has a medium body, but I found it more on the light side, crisp with a little airy creaminess. Pleasantly refreshing taste, made for easy and fast drinking. Like in the aroma, toasted french bread with a slab of honey butter and a nice fresh graininess on the back end. Finishes on the dry side with a palate cleansing grassy, spicy light hop bitterness that left me wanting more.
This is a highly drinkable all-malt lager, perfect for watching mid-spring baseball, quite thirst-quenching.
