Thanks to fishingnet for sharing this one.

A: Pours a cloudy pale yellow what a small white head. No retention or lace noted.

S: Simple aroma of corn, bready malt, and light herbal hops.

T: Similar flavor sweet malts, light yeasty bread, summer fruit, and a touch of green grass.

M: Medium in body, smooth, easy drinking.

D: Not too bad. Pretty good example of a style I don't really dig.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Pours a pale golden color with plenty of visible carbonation and white head. The smell is that of malted barley and a little bit of Dormunder-esque sweetness. The taste is much of the same, but the balance between the mild sweetness of the style and the lager malt is a little bit off. The carbonation is nice but the body is a little bit thin. Still, a fairly-drinkable brew.

On tap at Flossmoor Station on 8/9/09.

A - Golden body with a touch of haze and one-finger foamy cap on top that settled into a quarter inch of retention and deposited some sticky lace on the glass.

S - Bready, biscuity malt with sweet overtones and subtle noble hops reminiscent of citrus fruit, crisp apple and sweet grapes.

T - Bready and grainy malt character with a balance of light noble hops that impart a mild spiciness and subtle citrus quality. Sweet and fruity overall.

M - Light to medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and a mild syrupy texture. A bit light on the carbonation overall. Finishes with a subtle hop nibble on the tongue, providing minimal bitterness.

D - Very straightforward, no-frills representation of the style. However, I felt is was a bit light on the carbonation. Still, I found this to be a flavorful and quaffable lager.
