On tap at Piece Brewery in Chicago.

Got this for my wife as she wanted something light and crisp on the hot day. This beer was definitely light and bordered on flavored water. However, it was surprisingly good and refreshing. No much smell to it, but it didn't have that gross smell of American Macros. Very smooth, slightly carbonated. Overall I'd get this one again if I didn't want anything heavy.

Serving type: on-tap

It tastes, smells, and looks like bud light -- not at all what you would expect at a brew pub in Chicago -- all with extra carbonation that makes for an awful mouthfeel. My as well go somewhere down the street for a $2 bottle of Budweiser. How has this seriously won multiple awards?

Hey, do you like smarties? This tastes like the banana one! I for one, don't so I very much did not like this beer. There something about throwing that taste upon hops that just doesn't work. I know that it comes from part of the grain but it needs to be complimented and not challenged
