Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
We wanted to create a beer with the same distinct crispness and color that you get in the days of early summer. Using a dry-hopping technique, hops are not only added to the brew kettle, but also included in the aging tank, giving the specialty beer its distinct and crisp hop aroma. The choice selection of pale and caramel roasted barley malt gives this beer its deep golden color that looks great in a glass.

Crystal clear and yellow with frothy head.

Aroma is all corn, all the time. Wet, hot corn.

Mostly corn on the palate. Ends with a faint bitterness. Leaves cooked corn aftertaste.

This corny beer is corny. Light bodied and somewhat refreshing despite the corn flavor. Did I mention that this beer has a lot of corn character?
