This is an unusual beer. and very unique at best. Poured into my pint glass. Golden color appeared not much head. The taste of lightly salted butter popcorn filled my mouth and very addicting to that matter. The Pilsner taste was not existant as the popcorn taste over powered. One of a kind beer and worth trying

Picked up my first growler from Sun King. Had to try this when I heard they brewed with so much popcorn in this beer.
A- Poured clear and light golden in color. Big fluffly white head that left lots of lacing down the glass.
S- Nice crisp hop smell. Gives off a lighter beer smell. Very slight popcorn smell.
T- Light hop flavor, with a small amount of spice to it. The popcorn taste isn't there like I was expecting. Dry finish to it.
M- Light body with lots of carbonation.
D- Good pilsner with a good idea behind it. Still a very easy to drink beer. Would rather go with a Sun King year round beer next time. Good idea though trying popcorn.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Thr3e Wise Men in Indianapolis, IN for $4.50. Poured into a 16oz Tonic glass and enjoyed this after a 2oz sample.
Aroma- Perfect filsner aroma but no popcorn hints...
Appearance- Clear golden body with a 1 finger head that dies down quickly. Has almost no lace on the sides but not a big deal.
Flavor- Buttery, great amount of malts used, but may not be appropriate for the style...
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Light Carbonation, and decent for the style.
Overall Impression- Popcorn beer? Had to try. Now onto the Raskeller beer garden. Prost!

grabbed at the brewery about a week and a half ago. poured from the growler to a sun king shaped pint glass a crisp clear sunlight gold with a 2 finger white head with nice retention.
aroma of your dad's favorite beer that he picked up on the way home from work like 30 years ago. a very familiar, very comfortable, standard old american beer aroma.
wow. very nice. i wasn't sure what to make of this one after the 3oz taster at the brewery, but a full pint clears it all up for me. this is the beer that budweiser wishes it could make for the masses. it's a standard everyday beer, perhaps nothing special, except it is.
creamy, light, highly carbonated, barely perceptible bitters in the way back.
dirnkable - uhm, yeah, very.
