Good American style lager. Medium to medium light body, sweet with a hint of bitter on the finish. Overall an easy drinking beer that's great for summer days.

Beer Review #700. Sampled last night on 9/12/15 and comes in a 32-ounce growler for $9.69 at Hy-Vee over across the river in Council Bluffs, Iowa last week. Drank just half of it as I promised my friend the other half that he will drink tonight when he comes over. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured in to a 16 ounce "ROCK BOTTOM MUG CLUB" tall handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a clear lighter golden-yellow in color with a good 4-finger white foamy/fizzy head that finally settled down to still a good 1-finger head. A decent amount of lacing was seen after each sip that stuck to the sides of the glass. Aroma is of grains and corn for the most part. Pretty much is said for the taste as well. Very smooth and goes down easily with a crisp clean finish. No bitterness at all. Does the blue corn taste any different than regular yellow corn? Maybe just a bit. Lighter to medium-bodied. Overall, a great tasting brew.

Pours a crystal clear lighter golden color with white head. Cereal grains, corn specifically on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean, with a little sweetness.

From the growler shared by a friend of mine visiting my area. Sampled on July 4, 2014.

It pours pale yellow with a white fizzy head and excellent clarity.

Corn grits can be found in the aroma along with a breaded malt character. Clean, crisp hops. A lot like a standard everyday lager.

The body is light to medium.

The taste has a corny and malty character like the aroma but there is most certainly a bitter bite kicking in at the end and lingering. Corn from Iowa makes total sense.
