12oz bottle. I can't say that I've ever looked at the website that inspired this brew, but it seems that those who do like it (and these associated beers), like it a LOT.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with one chubby finger of puffy, loosely foamy, and kind of fizzy dirty white head, which leaves a bit of cannonball splash lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of bready, somewhat doughy pale malt, some corny graininess, gritty sugar, a hint of phenolic yeast, and a twinge of stanky herbal and grassy hops. The taste is more doughy pale malt, buttered corn on the cob, untethered yeast, cheap honey, and a still less than pleasant grassy, dead leafy hop bitterness.

The bubbles are fairly understated in their plain as the day is long frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, but buoyed by that clammy corniness, which flattens any expectations of real smoothness. It finishes sweet, like the Corn Pops wannabe this offering really is.

Yeah, create a so-called micro-brew (Red Hook? Nah!), and then charge some not so commensurate prices for swill that barely out-performs yer typical BMC lagers (ok, the mouthfeel is definitely bigger, but that's it). Oh, and definitely sleep well at night when this shit sells like crazy to all those 'ironic' brand-humping hipsters out there. Solid plan, weak-ass beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden yellow with a very small white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. The flavor is very watery. Not a good beer.

Pours an effervescent gold with 2 fingers pearl white head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Soapy, grainy & perfumy

T: Follows the nose, a little bit of pear as well. Some dryness & astrigency as this warms, a little bit of crackery note as well. Finishes crisp crisp dry, fruitty & grassy

MF: Light/medium bodied, sem-firm carbonation, alright balance

Drinks alright, might pick this up if in cans for summer time drinking

6/8/15 Buffalo Wild Wings

I'll cut to the chase. There isn't anything remarkable about this beer. I'd say it competes with a bud and if I were at a party and they had this or but I'd go with KCCO. Avg or below avg in every category.

Enjoyed this fine little brew via a friend from work----Thanks Kevin!
This fine brew pours a nice light golden color with a nice white head of foam
that settles to a thick ring and a thin later with light lacing. Light nose of
sweet malt and light grains. Flavors hit the right notes for refreshment with
mild honey and light grains and a herbal hops note. Crisp refreshing and
satisfying. Decent.

I have to say, this was a pretty decent beer for what it is. You can't sit and pick this one apart and put it up to close scrutiny, this is not that kind of beer. This is a beer you bring a 6 pack of to a party. It is a beer you throw back a few of with your buds on a Saturday afternoon/evening. It is the beer you grab out of the fridge after cutting the grass on a warm day. It is in a similar vein of a Budweiser or Coors Banquet, but with a better flavor profile and more satisfying presentation/experience.

Color is golden and clear, little smell, mild flavor of grain, corn, biscuit malt, and a mild breadiness that finishes crisp. Leaves a slight bready/lager aftertaste on the tongue that makes you want to take another drink. It is almost thirst quenching in it's execution.

If you want an easy drinker that you don't have to fuss over, but has better flavor than the standard AAL, this is the beer to go for. I will definitely partake in this one again, and I recommend others to give it a shot as well.

Would drink again: Yes
Would purchase again: Yes

I picked this up at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making this single 12oz brown bottle $1.67. It comes with a bottled on date on the front label. This one says May 7, 2015, so it's about 5 months old.

The beer poured a clear pale gold color with a 3-finger soapy white head that lasted about a minute. As I drank it it didn't leave any lacing at all.

Whoa! Huge lager small that filled the room the moment the cap came off. After getting my nose into the glass there was also some honey, herbal and grassy hops, and fruit.

Crackery malt base with some herbal hops, and then out of nowhere comes this really sweet dose of honey. At first I welcomed it, but the more I drank the sweeter it got. It was too overpowering and got in the way of the other flavors. If you like sweet beers you may like this, but it was too sweet for my taste.

Light to medium body with moderate to medium carbonation.

Not a favorite and hard to recommend with all that honey in it. Practically no bitterness at just 16 IBUs.

KCCO Gold Lager has a thick, white head, a bubbly, deep-gold appearance, some fairly heavy lacing left on the glass, and rather large white roiling sediment chunks. The aroma is of sweet, honey malt, and the flavor is of biscuit, honey, lemon, mild malt, and very low level hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and KCCO Gold Lager finishes crisp and refreshing.
