12oz can. Nothing special here. Plain, ol, basic, lager from the Heartland of the USA. Iím glad it was free.

This is the kind of beer your father or grandfather drank if you were 10 years old in 1965! Typical American lager. Fluffy head, medium yellow, nice steady carbonation. Not much "nose" to speak of, but what is there leans more towards the hop. Nice, smooth body with a light malt flavor, and a bit of a "yeasty" touch to it as well. The hops are certainly there, but blend in harmoniously rather than being too assertive or too weak. This beer is what it is. Itís not going to win any major awards at a World Beer Tasting Championship, but for having a few brewskiís with some peanuts or a hot dog at the game, thisíll fit rather nicely!

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Sampled on draught at the ABR 07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leave behind a white ring and no lacing. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of lemon citrus zest and even a hint of honey. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated, smooth with a bready malt and citrus hop flavor. Finish has a slight bitter taste at first and then crisp and clean cut. This definately reminds me of the original Heilemanís Old Style beer of the 1980s.

On tap at the Oasis. Brewed according to the original Old Style recipe. Iíll drink it to help the cubs win , but not for the taste.

12oz bottle from variety pack... nothing special about this lager. very bland lager. Not the worse, but by far not the best.

Avoid New Jersey. This is better than half the commercially available pale lagers out there. Definitely not much more than what you expect -- but there is some maltiness in the mouth that comes as a surprise.

Complete and utter trash! Iím shocked this crap is getting a 22 percentile rating. "Brewed with pure artesian water." Yeah, artesian water with rats bathing in it! Horrendous aftertaste, thin, disappearing head, color like urine tapped out of a 93-year oldís Foley bag. Do yourself a favor, avoid this beer (and Wisconsin in general) as you would the Black Death.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Deep Yellow color, clear, with no head. No aroma with a very light flavor. Somewhat sweet and soapy in flavor, with a moderate mouth feel.
