L: hazy straw gold permeated by rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white foam cap with fair to poor retention.

S: sweet corn, very light fruit, faint hint of sulfur, cracker, very low levels of DMS (cooked creamed corn).

T: lightly sweet on the tongue with sweet corn, light fruit, moderate low bitterness and moderate low malty sweetness. Very faint cooked cream corn taste at the end with a faint trace of apple. It has more malt flavors as it warms.

F: Outboard is light and crisp with a medium light body and above average smooth carbonation.

O: This light flavored beer is easy to drink.

Really nice super clear pale yellow, white head. Smells a bit like an American lager, with some corn/grain presence and a bit of sweet fruit. The flavor is a bit corn/grain like, which is expected. The fruity ester flavors are more typical of kolsch and maybe a clue to the yeast used. Light mouthfeel, a bit watery and crisp. Easy drinking take on a cream ale, but a little too much ester flavor for my liking. I did discover it makes a great beermosa.

Corny, Grassy, Clean, Grainy

MKB goes gets a little old school with this year-round brew, hits all the bells and whistles for the Cream Ale style. Built on being balanced the corn graininess settles in well with the malt character. Smooth with ample hopping from Columbus and Czech Saaz hops. It is difficult to brew a Cream Ale though MKB is certainly on the right path here. Regardless, very easy to knock back.

STYLE: Cream Ale | ABV: 5.0% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round
