3/5  rDev +20%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium golden color, quite clear, with a small off-white head, scattered patches of foam, and slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fairly tart malt, with a slight honey note, little or no hops noted. The aluminum bottle precludes this beer being light struck, short of it being shot into the sun.

Taste: Tart corn malt, throughout, with a bit of cooked vegetables, and a slightly sweet note. The finish is a bit dry.

Mouth feel: Smoth and fairly full, reasonably pleasant, with slight carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A decent lawnmower beer, better than most macro lagers.

Presentation: Packaged in an aluminum bottle, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Serving type: bottle

Sampling right now on 7/31/14. Never had this one before but heard about it. Paid $1.29 for the bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a flute glass.

Pours a hazy honey yellow in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing was seen with each sip but settled back down the sides of the glass. The aroma is of sweet corn for the most part. The taste is about the same and actually surprised how sweet this beer is! Sweet corn and grains for the most part. Very slight dry finish. Overall, it was just OK.
