Thick fluffy head sitting on a light gold body. Scent of sweet hay and grassy hops. Taste is sweet and fruity; apple, pear and grape with undertones of masa and corn husk. Close to no hop flavors detectable, and very appropriate for style. Thin bodied and fully carbonated, light yet completely satisfying. Definitely a session beer for all seasons, lucky to get my hands on some all the way here in Southern California. God bless bottle trading!

3.66/5  rDev -1.6%

A: A nice golden hue that is a good amount transparent, leaves a tiny head at the top and a good amount of lacing as you drink this one.

S: Not to much on the nose, slight hints of citrus and corn/breadyness, a slight sweetness on the nose as well.

T: The taste is not bad at all its the after taste thats the problem, a good amount of citrus on the tongue and some sweetness as well.

M: Light bodied and not a great amount of carbonation, weird at first sip.

O: Not a bad beer from Wisconsin, I enjoyed it especially the whole six pack.
