From a 12 oz bottle into a Chimay chalice. Pours bright yellow gold with small head and lace. Aroma of pale malt, grains, straw hops. Medium carbonation and light body. Flavors of pale malt, slight honey, light grains, light hops, minerals. Overall light, refreshing, modest in body but not bad for the style.

Not sure about some of the rants on here. I shared this with Sfrykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured straw yellow with nice white head and good lacing. Nose is cereal malts and grassy hops. Medium body and a smooth mouthfeel Flavor is adequate malts, some lemongrass, and the finish is nicely bitter. Truly a lawnmower beer and better than most macros by a mile.

12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Very clear yellow gold with a big white fluffy head. Decent lacing. A lemony aroma and that is also tasted. I kind of like the malts here and they give a crisp, clean aspect to the beer. Some grass and honey suckle, but not much. As the description says, this would be a good beer for after mowing the lawn.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is filled with corn and comes off rather sweet. Taste is light and not terribly sweet, and doesn’t taste appreciably different from the macro lagers out there. Meh.

Unsure of the previous disses against this, a near perfect lager. Medium golden body with thick, pillowy head. Pure grain aroma, sweet corn, cooked vegetables. Taste brings more grain flavor, slick mouthfeel, medium weight. A touch of hops bitterness on the tail end. Beats any of the commercial macrobrews hands down. Well done!

This beer is bad beyond belief. It’s like they are getting the grain (malt, if any is used) from the truck that was taking a spoiled batch to the pig farm.
This product is right up in price with the quality offerings from Deschutes and New Belgium too. It’s amazing what some people will drink.

12 oz bottle- Pours pale clear golden with one finger head and limited lace. Aroma seems to be off, creamed corn and almost funky, but in a odd way, even if it were in some bretty type beer I don’t think i’d like this, just kind of Weird. The taste is worse than the aroma, creamed corn that came straight from a tin can, and sat in the sun for a year or so. What is wrong with this beer? Did I get a old bottle from the old brewing days when this brewer brewed some of the worst beers on record (from what I hear they have a new very experienced master brewer), or did I get a bad bottle, or even worse is this is actually how the beer is supposed to taste? Was questioning whether I should post this, but I did get it out of my beer club, so I wouldn’t think it was old. If I do ever get a chance to try this again and am somehow impressed then I will rerate it.

On tap at brewhouse
Light, light yellow - really light. Hints of white foam. Nose carries diacetyl and corn, not much else. Flavor is of maize, and a hint of salinity - really thinned out. Empty body with hi carb and semi dry finish. I guess it’s better than Keystone, but not much.

Serving type: on-tap
