On tap in Minneapolis, MN. Drank late run the night after many big and better beers, so this may play into the review...

Amber and clear with a light white head that leaves light lacing. Some citrus and pepper on the nose.Tons of corn in the nose too, which also dominates the body. Meh. Corn is not my thing, nor is this beer.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice redish color with a small white head that leaves some nice lacing. Smelled of caramelized malt, but it was pretty weak. Tastes of caramelized malt and light hops, but it is not overly strong. Has a nice smooth taste, not overly carbonated. Overall, an OK beer, at least it is better than green beer for the beer drinking holiday in March.

A- Ruby red and clear. An ok head.

S- a weak hops character. Smells like a typical, not altogether impressive

T- A tad malty, with .some hops on the finish. A little bland to me, but nothing too offensive

M- Kinda light and watery for me.

O- Not a terrible beer, good for the price. Not really something I would buy again, though.

Has a reddish amber color with an off white head. Sweet malt aroma and taste is very similar. Has mild bitter middle with a clean clean sweet & sour finish. Highly carbonated and very drinkable. My personal favorite before getting into craft brews little over a year ago.
