On-tap at the pizzeria:

The beer appeared a light yellow in color that produced a white head that no retention. This might have been due the staff being overwhelmed by the crowd that night and not really caring. The beer also gave off a nice, light malty aroma, as expected for the style. The beer had a really good  taste and is a good example of the style. Well balanced, light feel, very easy to drink, again, as expected from the style. Overall, a good beer.

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
