Can from shigadeyo. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with an above average return.

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.

Pours like any adjunct, a clear piss yellow. The smell is that typical adjunct can twang. The taste was better than say Genesee or Budweiser but it was still pretty bad, mostly just sweet mineral water. It is cheap, but not as cheap as Blatz or the like, so it pretty much isn’t worth it.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 Burger is back, and got some decent press in Cincinnati during its 2009 re-release. I’m surprised to see this fairly highly rated, but then again its peers are mostly pretty weak. It’s not bad but offers little more than a macro lager. Clear gold pour, average white head. Weak aroma. Corn, light grain and malt. Moderate carbonation. I imagine I’ll start seeing can specials of this at bars around Cincinnati, which would be worth trying instead of overpriced macros.

12oz can, thanks to b3shine. My can says it was contract brewed in PA, for Hudepohl. Clear pale yellow color. Little white head. bits of lace. Bready, salty, buttery and light banana notes. Pronounced but lighter carbonation. Weird body, has an odd finish. I must be missing something, here. Tastes like an unimpressive macro without really any appealing qualities, though nowhere near as offensive as the miller I had last night.

12 ounce can thanks to Beau. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light grainy nose. Nothing here, nothing bad or good: sweet grain, water maybe some honey. I could drink 20 of these! I want to in a sick way.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Light sweet aroma. Light golden with a thin whispy head. Some grass. Barley malt and grass. Don’t get much adjuncts, its nice and clean.A little lemon in finish. If this was my local pale lager I would drink the hell out of it.

12 oz. can shared by shigadeyo. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavor is grainy malts with light citrus. I do find both this and the Light to be better options than most BMC stuff, but they are still pale lagers. The Burger Light is slightly cleaner.

Can to pint. Looks fine; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells doughy and skunky, but not in a bad way. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright for what it is, and a good value.
