On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07.

Clear, honey gold appearance. Nice head retention. Fleeting smell of spice in nose.

Agreeable, mellow malt character. No hops to speak of. Lingering corn on finish.

Would have liked it a bit more had it not been for the corn, which is the dominant flavor.

Meh.
