650ml bottle - my second example of this relatively rare style in as many days! Kind of pushing it with the whole 'hicks are into their family' shtick, eh?

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, foamy, and mildly fizzy dirty white head, which leaves some coral reef lace around the glass as it swiftly abates.

It smells of grainy and (corn)bready caramel malt, white breakfast biscuits, some muddled dark orchard fruitiness, and a wee green grassy hop bitterness. The taste is bready and slightly doughy caramel malt, subtle earthy yeast, corn cereal, underripe red apples, and a very gentle leafy and grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its prickling and prodding frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and mostly smooth, with just a strange, I'm gonna say yeastiness, mucking about. It finishes off-dry, the mutt-like malt carrying on and on, while the other rather limited in the first place esters fade to black.

Overall, a decent enough rendition of a typically blase style - kind of biscuity, which is a plus, but I'm not sold on the whole corn/Kentucky angle - seems kind of weak to me. Anyways, worthy of a go if yer Anchor Steam is starting to seem, um, old.
