Thanks Jace Marti!

Light, light yellow with a loose fitting cap of bone white foam. Absolute clarity. Smells super light, some grain, some maize, some grass clippings and a hint of bread. Taste is also really light with some light malt, a touch of cornbread with sweetness some slight bitterness and a overture of steel. Thin, real thin with moderate carb and an off dry finish. Could slam this all day on a hot one.

Maybe I'm biased because I am from Minnesota, but I have always liked this beer. What I really like is the balance of the taste. The initial flavor is sweeter and somewhat fruitier than most American Lagers. But the after taste is a bit malty and grain-filled. I like that. It also has a fullness to the mouthful that I enjoy. The coloring is a beautiful gold, and although the smell is faint, it is inviting (especially on warm days).
