24oz can at the July DC tasting. Poured a dark ruby brown/cola color with a small off-white, very pale tan colored head. Bready. Light malts. Cardboard. Falls totally flat. Why didn’t they make an Imperal Stout and call it "Back in Black"?

Poured from the big can looks clear golden with some champagne bubbles, can looks tough but the alcohol content is a little low for my taste. Tastes like a German pils but with a sweetness that makes it go down really fast, maybe a touch of apple, I don’t even remember where I bought it. I should have bought a case and played AC/DC records til I passed out (minus the school boy suit because it would be weird for a middle aged man to wear that), if I see it again maybe I will.

Onslow (1392) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Pour from a 19oz can. I was looking through the beer shelves at Horrock’s and found one lone can of this in with the six packs. Appearance is pal golden brew with very nice creamy / dense white head that does not diminish much. Aroma is adjunct grains with a little grass - not so great. Taste is sweet neutral grain up front, not so adjunct dominated as the aroma, and a mild grassy / noble hops flare in the finish. Palate is very nice for a pale lager - almost creamy like an ice cream float. Overall enjoyable. Way better than Badass Lager, which is the only other rock band beer I can compare it to.

Canette de 568 ml achetée chez ANBL (Tracadie, N-B) au coût de 4,40$. Arôme: Très légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux avec une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales et d’houblon. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #6927)

AlfredoGarcia (262) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 10, 2016
568 ml can (weird format) . Bought in a Jumbo supermarket in Santiago. Drinking this listening to Powerage. Clear golden color with good foam (great for a pale lager). Sweet smell, honey and grains in there, also some yeast, also great for a pale lager. Against my odds it tastes like a proper beer. Grains and hops in there. My expectation were really low for this one because of the last AC/DC beer I had a couple of years ago, but this was certainly better. A Pale Lager done right. I’m gonna go against the flow and say this is a decent beer.

Pour a golden color with a full white head. It does produce some lacing. It has aromas of grass, grainy, and a bit of spice. It has flavors of grass, grain; which are somewhat sweet tasting. There is a bit of spice as well. It has a light feel it is with a light bitter finish.
