Color is a brighter yellow of partial cloudyness, thin, loose, white crown that faded fast and leaves minimal whispy spots of lace.
Smell is light, clean, and soft malts of sweetness, with a dulling floralness of hops dotted through each wiff. Taste is clean and creamy sweetness of softly done malts, kinda frothy grainyness, like intensely whipped cream malts or something, quite a appetizing feel, but it doesn't last I'm afraid, but the creamyness stays til the end where it cleans up with a touch of floral hops and goes dry; nice and easy, clean and creamy little drinker.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 11-21-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Acquired in a trade with Initiative.

Pours a pale and hazy yellow, similar to pineapple juice, with a quickly fading layer of foam.

The aroma is of subtle citrus peel, sweet corn, pale malt and a bit of grass. It smells really crisp too.

Upfront sweetness and corn flavors, with a bit of sweet orange and grapefruit in the finish. Slight hop presence with a little mint. A slight fruitiness in the finish/aftertaste. Very clean and crisp tasting.

Mouthfeel is average to slightly above average, for the style I say it is spot on, not too light but enough body to make this feel like a well crafted beer. I’m not too fond of lagers, and this one obviously has lager qualities but blending it with an ale gives it a nice body that I feel combines two great aspects from both types of beers: refreshing taste, and a malt body to back it up. I wouldn’t mind drinking this again.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow straw color. Small white head atop quickly settles and leaves a small ring of white around the edge of the glass. Just a little bit of lacing is left clinging to the walls of the glass.

Smells of smooth honey, sweet malt, and yeasty banana. Touch of spice and just a touch of black pepper in there too.

Smooth malt body. Nice medium sweetness with a touch of light caramel in there. Yeast notes come thought with banana and light fruit. Easy drinking and flavorful, it's easy to see why Wisconsinites drink so much of this stuff, especially at the price point.
