2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not as bad as I was led to believe. Just another pale lager. Corn aroma and taste. A little malty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Standard macro looking pour (piss yellow with white head). Head dies after a few minutes, but does leave some lacing on the glass. Grassy nose with some metallic scents. This is allegedly brewed under the same recipe as Heilemanís Old Style (kraeusened, etc.) but it doesnít taste exactly the same. This has a metallic flavor and more hoppyness in the finish/aftertaste than Heilemanís Old Style. Other than that it has some sweetness to it with lemon grass notes. Iím going to rate this slightly below Heilemanís Old Style (the kraeusened version) though for a cheap beer (paid 12.49 for a 30 pack @ Woodmans on 005/05/10) this isnít too shabby. I would rate this a full 1.5 points higher (3.7 out of 5) if it werenít for the metallic taste/nose. The lower carbonation makes it a good slamming brew, and ice cold it is refreshing. A good mowing beer I guess. (donít forget to pour some on the lawn. Iíve read that the malt & hops are actually good for the grass!).

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear lemon yellow with quite a bit of white head that quickly dissipates to a light coating and light lacing. Aroma is a mix of bread and hay with grassy notes. Flavor is rather floral with bread and nut flavors. Body is very light with a lot of carbonation.

Good cheap beer. Golden color with kind of a unique aftertaste. Still not as good as blatz

Funny how circumstances can affect your view. I had this ice cold from a friends cooler after reffing a soccer game on a hot night. At the time it was very tasty. Not much aroma but a honey sweet taste that went down easy.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Corn-yellow/gold beer; somewhat fluffy off-white head, not very stable. Metallic-grassy nose, even a bit like sewage water - otherwise said, pretty unappetizing. Unpleasant, slightly lemony-sour and very metallic taste, plus a flavour as from decaying grass. light, watery, fizzy, but the aggressive flavour keeps coming. Ugh! Txs to DavidA - I guess ;^}

All, I have to say is it comes in a 30 pack for $9 and I can drink all 30 without a buzz! It is my water of choice!

I have the feeling that the LaCrosse label at one time was a big regional brewery, and a favorite of the Wisconsin/Michigan.Illinois area. If so, I will give it some respect - after all, being from Baltimore, Natty Boh has a place in my heart. But this is just plain old megabrew lager now. Good, cheap, thirst qunching, but the beer-snob crowd will turn up it’s nose.

You can buy 30 packs of this at some stores in Wisc for around $10. Itís a very tasteless watered down, overly malted unbalanced lager with a low ABV, so you probably need the whole 30 pack to catch a buzz. I tried this yesterday at a beer fest, and im glad i didnít purchase this one.
