3.3
JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2010
On tap at Fullsteam, Toro City. Pale yellow pour, moderately undercarbonated but still fairly lively looking. Soft nose with some grain, very faint dry hops. Taste is stays medium, not in the Jim Zorn way but in an understated quaffer way. Decent for a style that’s not just underwhelming for the most part but entirely forgettable. The least ostentatious of Fullsteam’s offerings so far, but a good session brew.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Draft at the brewery reviewed from some old notes. Golden color is a little darker than macro lager’s usually are. Fresh hay flavors and smell, some toasted corn notes. Very clean finish. Light and drinkable without being watery. Not a great style, but a good session beer that also works as something to offer people who aren’t into craft beer.

emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours a translucent clean yellow with a one finger frothy white head. Nose is vegetal and grassy, corn, some hay, mildly sweet, strange aroma. Flavor shows corn and hay, vegetal, not digging it. Palate is soft with a low carbonation.

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Rated on 02-27-2013 at Fullsteam Brewery. This draft beer presents a small beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent pale yellow body, very little carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is grainy and grassy hops. The flavor is grainy, grassy hops and semi-sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is a quaffable session beer with very little character.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Poured from the tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear pale yellow color with zero head. The aroma is faint grain and corn. The taste is very weak flavored corn meal. An average beer.
