646. Banded Horn Brewing Wicked Bueno

Banded Horn Wicked BuenoWicked Bueno was brewed by Banded Horn for Cinco de Mayo as an alternative to the Mexican Lager. Using 15% corn Ian made a very light, crisp and flavorful beer.

This may be the lightest beer I have reviewed to date, very pale yellow with minimal head even with an aggressive pour. Aroma is mild but what is there is fruity. Taste is surprising as I was not expecting a lot of flavor from such a light beer. Their is a nice hop profile but very little bitterness.

Wicked Bueno is far from your typical craft beer but it does a lot of things right, sessionable and crushable.

Brewers Description: 
This light beer has a good amount of body, flavor, and hoppiness. Brewed with 15% corn. Maltiness is present, but very simple. A slight green apple-like flavor that blends well with Centennial hops. It’s not bitter, but amply flavor-hopped for the style. Overall a super easy drinker. Body is crisp and smooth.
