3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep gold with a half finger white head than hangs around longer than on similar beer.
Aroma of sweet grain along with a touch of caramel and citrus hops.
The flavor has quite a bit going on for a beer of this style. Some sweet bready grain up front along with a bit of honey and caramel. Some faint citrus hops are there along with a light, drying bitterness. Finishes very clean.
For a cheap ($6.99/12 pack) beer this is excellent. A great lawnmower beer with plenty of flavor.

Can from harvest pizza. Light pour and little head. Mild hop and malt taste and pretty light summer type beer. Not bad for something called burger.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Burger Classic Beer has a thick, quickly-dissipating head, and a clear, golden appearance, with no lacing. The aroma is musty, semi-sweet, grainy, and stinging. Taste is of sweet grain, a touch of hop bitterness, and it does have some bite to it. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Burger Classic Beer finishes crisp, dry, and fairly refreshing. Overall, this is just an average, budget beer. RJT

Slightly hazy gold, thin white head.
Scent is grain, corn.
Taste is mildly wheaty...not too bitter or sweet....
Actually pretty decent for a bargain can.....It’s better than a Bud.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Rerate on the account that I drank this all weekend. Became less and less enjoyable.
12oz can - pours light orange with big head that goes away quickly and light lacing. Nose is yeast and corn. Aroma is fairly hoppy (pilsner type). taste is mainly bitter but in a light way. Some sweetness make a modest appearance. Light to medium bodied with sticky texture. refreshing and satisfying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Slightly sweet barley malt. Medium yellow color with moderate head. Mildly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Medium body. One of a number of resurrections of classic Cincinnati beers - I never got a chance to try this before (had plenty of other Hudepohl-Schoenling beers though). This is the best of - kind of reminds me of the old Hudepohl Gold beer. Definitely better than the main stream pale lager - as long as this is available, I will keep this around for pale lager drinkers and when I want something lighter.

12 oz can.
Interestring, slightly distictive "comeback beer".
Check Wikipedia for the story,
To quote":Hudepohl-Schoenling operated in Cincinnati as an independent brewer until late 1997 when the brewery was sold to Boston Beer Company, brewers of Samuel Adams Beer. Hudepohl-Schoenling brands would continue to be brewed and packaged in Cincinnati under contract by Boston Beer Company, which had renamed the Schoenling Brewery "Samuel Adams Brewery." This arrangement continued until 2001 when the contract was not renewed by Boston Beer Company" (
But another guy stepped up and brought it back.
I am glad that he did,
This is an old school German-American beer that not the same old same old mass produced American suds.
12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is also heavy on malts, some grains and a bit of sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew
