The first time I bought this beer was because the label caught my eye. Good packaging is a good sell by any standards. Well, needless to say we bought a 6 pack and went home. After finishing the 6 pack we proceeded to go back to the liquor store and bought three more. Iím not the biggest fan of Lagers but this one was great. Not to mention itís brewed in Michigan so thatís a plus too.

355ml bottle. as "Badass American Lager". Aroma is a bit sulphury, light fruits, grain. Flavor is grainy, slight metallic, along the lines of an adjunct lager, maybe a bit sweeter, a small brewery has done well to make a decent pale lager this is far more easy to palate than PBR.

Iíve had this a few times only on draft at Comerica during the Kid Rock show, at Cheliís, the Clarkston Union and the Machine Shop in Flint. Everything but the Machine Shop has been consistent (I think it was the wrong keg at the Machine Shop, but it couldíve been an early test batch). The beer...typical lager color (no head) and tastes light with a little bit of a hop flavor that gives it more taste than the typical domestic lager. There is no aftertaste so it succeeds as a good refreshing tailgating beer thatís an easy drinker. Iíd definitely buy it as a daily drinker. I think the Kid has achieved what he set out to accomplish.

I generally laugh at products that purport to be "hardcore", or "badass", feeling the overly conspicuous machismo, is hiding some serious latent homosexual tendencies. But I threw caution to the wind, and cast my better judgement aside, and tried a 6 pack of this junk last weekend. I have drank worse (one time in grade school, I swallowed some anti-freeze.....that was worse than this). Itís actually OK, but when you have the standard set so high for yourself (Blatz#1), everything else is a little baby girl in comparison. Bad Ass=Bad Ass in the morning, and potentially all day.....so if you want the ladies hovering about your grosse wurst, like a cloud of honeybees swarming the lilacs, stick with Blatz for those heady & sophisticated times. If you are feeling a lilttle "GAY" and donít mind an after bender BAD ASS situation, by all means try some of this fruity little drink. Or not.

Pours straw with malt notes. Typical American brew that has more malt than the big massed produced lagers. I thought it was good for what it is. Keep an open mind.

Pours up very light white on tap at the brewery. No head. Aroma of light alcohol. Not really much flavor, either. Thereís nothing offensive about it.

No aroma. Taste is well balanced and fairly robust for a pale lager. Somewhat sweet with hints of roasted malt. I think itís actually quite good for this style and donít understand all the hate being spewed forth towards this beer.

Bottle of said liquid pours out pale clear gold with white head. The aroma offers up fresh graininess, so thereís that, crusty nut husks and sugar malt sweetened floral hops. The taste is terrible with slick thin sugary sweetness, corn, a sense of skunk, floral hops and an all too timid level of spicy hops. Ďnuff said.
