Can - decent size thick head, medium straw color, mildly sweet malt/lager aroma and flavor, mild hops - actually not bad, certainly much more flavorful than your typical American lager

Medium yellow tan pour into shaker. Quarter inch white head that disappeared in 30 seconds. Looks like a darker macro brew. Sour smell similar to a macro brew, slightly spicier, hints of cinnamon/nutmeg. Light body, medium carbonation. Easy to drink, slightly sour on the tongue. Like a macro lager but more complex. Tastes reminiscent of a German style lagers. Woody, more notes of spices like nutmeg and cloves. Truly great alternative to the big 3 pissy pilsners.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Received sample 12-oz can from distributor to try. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates to a cream top and minimal lacing. Aroma of lager yeast, bread dough, a hint of floral hops and a touch of honey. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of bread dough, floral hops and some mild lager yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a lingering bread dough aftertaste.

Now why does the Atwater’s Lager beer can design remind me of a 1970s era Stroh’s Bohemian beer can? http://www.taverntrove.com/item.php?ItemId=3736

Pretty close to your typical light lager. A strange green hue to this though, similar to Badass Lager which makes me question Detroit’s water supply.

Flavor is somewhat sulphery , a bit of sweet caramel some fruity notes and then a tart lemony taste,short finish, way too fizzy in the mouth. This was drinkable but nothing I would buy again
