Got a bottle of this down at South Haven. Brewed by Huber and subcontracted by Harborside Beverage Group. Sounds fishy. Pours a lighter golden color with a smallish head that did not do too well in maintaining itself. Some bubbly action. Aroma was quite skunky but I fairly sure this bottle is new to the market. DMS and a sweet creamed corn charcter, not really a smell I enjoyed. Taste was not as bad being that the off flavors were more muted. A bit sweet but also a bit thicker in body then I would have imagined. Seemed really adjuncty with not really any quality characteristics to make up for itself. If you see this I would advise you to stay away.

Thin patch of white foam coats a clear yellow-gold body--straightforward macro look. Same with the smell. Were it not for the sweet corn aroma, this would pass for water. Poor start that hardly improves with the taste, with corn malt carrying the day. This is about two steps below Molson Canadian.

This was a dud. When I saw that it's made by the same brewer that makes Berghoff, it made sense, for while Berghoff isn't all bad, it's on the whole cheap Midwestern macrobeer. Avoid at all costs.
