Thanks to BDLbrewster for this as an extra!

Pours a surprisingly lively deep corn-golden. Nice billowey, frothy head, but it dissipates fairly fast. Doesn't smell like much, almost like thanksgiving maize, a bit nutty, a bit roasty. Clean lager smell. Tastes clean, a bit nutty, but not that real sharpness you sometime get. Clean and smooth, Not the fullest feeling, but it is clean and refreshing. I like this a lot better than Dead Guy, for example.

3.7/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Decent golden color, clear, thick white head that clings to the glass.

Strong sweet malt aroma with some bready notes and a touch of sulfer. The hops balance nicely.

The flavor is much the same as the aroma with a good malt complexity that accents the breadiness. The hopping is pleasant, but feels a bit overdone and lingers a bit to the finish.

Overall, this one is very drinkable and I would definitely buy it again.
