Wish it was available outside of Wisconsin. This beer is 100 times better on tap.

A very drinkable beer. I was surprised by the overall lightness. But despite the lightness, there was still plenty of flavor - a bit of hops and a bit of malt.

A great "regular" beer, I'm always in good spirits as I open one of these bottles. Good for mass consumption, even better at a bowling alley!

Served in a Nonic Pint Glass

Eyes
Hazy and pale straw-colored body. A modest head formed and left a small amount of soapy lacing.

Nose
Barley, grains, and corn dominated the nose. Refreshing notes of apple and lemon canceled out the initially heavy malts.

Mouth
Grains hit first… think corn and sweet grains. Light herbal hops gained steam throughout the session. Minor hints of lemon made this a refreshing brew. Medium/Light body. Moderate carbonation.

Overall
After throwing a few of these back it is easy to see why this brew is a staple in summer sessionables.

Refreshing ale that tastes very similar to a lager.
