Notes / Commercial Description:
John likes bees. John’s like of bees led him to hanging out with other people who like bees. Some of the other people who like bees work at The Field Museum. The Field Museum was opening a bistro and bar. John was opening a brewery. And that is pretty much the story of how Off Color and The Field Museum collaborated to make this crisp, clean pilsner with a dry-hopped bite far inferior to Sue’s.

12 ounce bottle , dated as Enjoy by 13Mar19. Poured into a tulip.
Pours a crystal clear pale yellow. Smaller head, but great retention. Small amounts of lacing but a light, white cap of foam during the whole drink.
Aromas of lemon, lemongrass, cracker and dough.
Not complex and similar profile as the aroma. Crackers, lemon, light, small skunky finish.
Light, crisp, bubbly body.
Very drinkable, refreshing.

Brewed for the Field Museum and her famous dinosaur, this brew is crystal clear, with a slim head. It looks clearer than a typical macro lager, although the aroma is spicy and pungent. The taste is lightly malty and flavorful. Medium body. Nice.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Beer Head Pub in Schaumburg, IL. The appearance is a clear gold color with a small white head. The aroma is malt, hops and corn. The taste is floral hops, grass and grain.

Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a decent white head that recedes rapidly leaving marginal lacing. Aroma is grassy and slight corn with a touch of biscuit. Flavor is sweet corn and grass. Not as much hop bite as I was expecting from a dry hopped beer. Feel is nice enough, crisp and well carbonated. Nice beer.

Pours pale clear golden with slight head from bottle into glass. Rim of foam lingers and beer leaves a solid amount of lacing on the glass as you drink. Smell is crisp malt and hops with a faint cider-like tartness. Taste is similar. Feel is crisp but not too dry on the palate. Extremely drinkable and maybe a new favorite for the style!

Pours a soft, white head. Soft, spicy aroma. Crystal clear, light gold color. Starts with a nice, pleasant spicy hop flavor; medium bitterness. Effervescent with a little maltiness. Lingering spicy hop bitterness, with a touch more malt peaking through into the finish.

This is really nice; I love the contrast of hop bitterness and maltiness. Very nice.
