Bought this because cheap and I figured with the ratings would be a good cheap beer. It's not. Sickly sweet, I'm sure the "copper" is Carmel coloring. Pabst and even Hamms is better if I have to buy cheap swill. Typical horrible InBev crap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty terrible beer. Pour is dark brown with no head. Flavor is skunky and the aftertaste is metallic.

Bottle. For what it is, itís really not bad. Actually for a cheap beer itís rather tasty. Dark, clear copper color. Rather small head. Aroma is grains and bread. Taste is grains, bland up front but a sweet finish.

Can from Rothís Hayesville. Very deep amber in color, almost a ruby in color. Quite pretty. Nose is grainy with some wet cardboard. Flavor is bready malt and a little musty. Rather bland really. Not a horrible beer, just kind of bad.

Tasted on 3/21/15 from a 25oz can purchased at the gas station. Pours a surprisingly dark amber with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is corny malt, a touch of nutty molasses darkness, some cereal, and just a touch of grass. The flavor is just a bit more nutty and dark than the nose with the same grass, corn, and cereal from the nose. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short, lightly nutty and grassy finish.

foyle (322) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 13, 2015
From 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Appearance: 1"+ off white head drops rapidly with no lacing. Color is clear amber with mild streaming carbonation. Aroma: very mild, just some toasted barley, caramel, and clean water. Mouthfeel: light, crisp and frothy with a dry finish. Flavor: caramel, toasted barley, a bit of licorice(?) and a very mild hop presence. Overall: pleasant and easy to drink.

Reid (2080) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2015
16 oz can from a six pack purchased at a local convenience store for the princely sun of $5.99 Good copper colour with a small creamy off white head. No aroma to speak off just the usual marco lager paper/cardboard hop. Taste ..metallic but there are some malts in there and even the slightest bit of grassy hop. MOuthfeel OK gets a wee sticky at th end. OK warm weather refresher..a million times better than regular Busch.

Danyel (1335) - Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours clean, copper with white head. Aroma is lager yeast, hay, a bit if toast. Taste is light bodied, crisp, thin, really not much flavor going on, kinda like drinking a highly watered down beer. Overall, not too impressed.

This is a really pretty beer with a dark brown appearance and very little tannish head. A mediocre taste that goes down easy if a tad bit warmer; this is not an ice cold beer. High marks appearance, neutral aroma, low taste(not horrible and not great, easily drank though). Locally Iíve only seen these in 6-packs in pint cans, at 3.50 the price canít be beat, 65% of the cost of domestic light 30-packs with a huge jump in ABV. Definitely a value beer hence the high overall score, will buy again as my daily run-of-the-mill beer many more times Iím sure!

Copper pour with a beige head. Aroma is cereal grains. Taste is cereal grains, light malt, light flavor. OK tasting. No off flavors. Cheap good American lager.

For $4.50/6 16oz and 5.7% alcohol content, hands down my favorite supermarket beer. More taste and color than the typical cheapies. I love a lot of beers, but in "itís" category, itís way tastier than anything Bud, smoother and more delicious than Icehouse, even though I like Icehouse a lot. Itís just reliable for the things Iím looking for in a basic, daily- type, massively inexpensive brew.
