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"?

Actually ok for a lager. Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Not as good as the Iron Maiden beer though. Tall can.

TattooJack (479) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2016
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 (1369) - 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.
