12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with minimal head. Aroma of corn and grains with minimal malt. Taste is light sweet. Caramel, cotton candy and corn. Light bodied with a slightly slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out. commonmac (1367) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Tap at Memory Lanes. Good amber color. Doesn’t give the impression of freshness otherwise. Little head, no lacing. And not tied into the pouring abilities of the bartender. Slight malt sweet aroma but very slight. Tastes like a run of the mill Midwestern lager. No complexity. If you’ve tried the Grain Belt Nordeast, this bears a striking family resemblance. More brick than fire. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013

Its a lovely amber with a solid sheet of toasted cream on top. Smells sweet with some nougat, some pale malt, some biscuit and a bit of tea. Flavor is malts, sweet, some banana, some more tea (sweet tea in the south), some bits of orange peel. Medium on full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation and a wet finish. Decent beer, nothing I’d be likely to slam repeatedly. MarkSachon (1062) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
12 oz bottle from unknown origin in Pittsburgh. Generally bland and unremarkable. I won’t be going back anytime soon. Maibock (4) - - JUL 6, 2013 does not count
Used to be able to get this on Northwest Airline Flights in a can. It was awesome at 35,000 feet in First Class. I loved it. Bottled from the liquor store was not the same, but still a very enjoyable beer. Very Smooth and Creamy. Very little after bite. I pause and look at it whenever I’m at my beer store, but alas, I move on. Still not a bad beer. My favorite from August Schell.

Tap in Republic, Minneapolis. Good mid-amber colour with a thin head. Pleasant malty aroma, firm taste initially, hint of biscuit, something else a bit weird is it metal? Thin finish. Pleasant enough but a bit disappointing. joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013

Son-in-law got me to try this one. Aroma is light with a pleasant malt odor. Appearance is a somewhat sparkling amber with an average white head and persistent lacing. Taste is subtle malt with just a hint of hops- not a lot of flavor but very pleasant and drinkable. Palate gets a light/medium feel with slight carbonation and a clean finish. Won’t tell my son-in-law but I might have found my new everyday favorite with this one.
