This brilliantly clear, copper-colored beer with a tight, quickly dissipating white head has a caramel and toast aroma supported by moderate notes of corn and an inviting blend of both citrusy and floral hops. The same complex blend of caramel, toast, citrus, floral, and corn-like notes persist into the flavor. The finish is dry with moderate astringency and a moderate corn-like creaminess. The body is light with medium-high carbonation making this a very easy-drinking, sessionable beer. The corn-like notes make this example more of a cream ale than a Pilsner, but either way, this beer is perfect for eating hot dogs, wearing an orange foam cheese hat, and cheering loudly with friends whether you're at Lambeau Field or in your own living room.
