2.9/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 24oz brown bottle.

Pours a light golden yellow color with a 2 finger head which dissipates very quickly down to just a very thin layer.

Aroma is grainy and malty with a light grassy smell. There are some very faint smells of yeast and corn as well.

Taste is mostly of grains and malt. Some slight corn meal flavors are present too. There is some slight bitterness on the finish. Nothing spectacular. Mouthfeel is ok, lots of carbonation.

Overall not bad, but not great.

2.95/5  rDev -1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Stubby 11.2 ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a 1" thick white head which lingers and leaves semi-rings of lace.

N: Corny, grainy, malty and yeasty. Not too exciting.

T: A bit estery with very faint banana notes, yeasty and mildly sweetish malts.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry with a crisp and clean finish.

O: Easy to drink and it was refreshing on a warm afternoon.
