Pours a deep yellow color with a firm head. Lots of lacing here, but the head seems to die out after a bit. Smells of light grassy hops and a prescient malty corn. Tastes roughly the same. Nice taste after the swallow; light bitterness but more than anything that lightly sweet corn taste. Would recommend as a nice middle of the road cream ale.
