The Banquet Beer was born in the Rockies and has been a proud part of the American experience for generations, stubbornly refusing to compromise, since 1873.

Bottle at Memory Lanes. Bowling special. The bottle is a thing of beauty. Not too many venture down the squat size road. Smells like grains and bad beer. Pale yellow, nearly clear. Taste doesn’t have much to it which pretty much aligns with your expectations when you order this one. But it sure does make you feel manly.

Yup have to rate it. Can. Pour looks identical to coors light other than that its a shade darker which isnt saying much. Fuller than a light beer and has an odd sweet taste.sweet corn syrupy taste that goes good with any banquet. Little malty, smooth, refreshing after a long hard day in the stands at nascar. Nothing like sitting next to momma with my gut out, enjoying one of these bad boys. They don’t call it a banquet beer for nothing. Go jeff gordon!

Aussi doré qu’un jus de pommes grand public, une grosse mousse fuyante qui ne laisse absolument rien derrière elle., mais rien du tout. QU’est-ce que c’est que cette odeur? Ça pique les narines, ça sent le foin et les toilettes sèches et les mauvaises herbes. Le goût, si on peut dire, est âcre, avec des saveurs d’oignons confits, parce que c’est sucré, mais en fait, c’est plutôt des saveurs d’oignon avec du sucre raffiné. C’est difficile à saisir.

Tastes like sweet corn, tin, seltzer... Enjoyable on a hot summer day when you’re fixing a Scooter from Taiwan.

Transfer from BA review on 10-29-13- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a one finger pure white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is almost none existent but consists mainly of a sweeter corny smell and a bit of green apple fruitiness. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and very corny taste. These flavors create the base of the beer but are joined by some other flavors of a papery nature as well as a bit of grain and green apple. In the end somewhat off grainy, corny, and paper taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and make for a easy drinking brew. Overall –Not really the best brew out there and even though it is rather cheap, there are much better beers at a similar price that one could substitute for this.

Just gbrain and h20. I guess if it is real hot and the beer is real cold OK. But nothing really to rate as there is nothing to it

Pours a typical straw yellow, not impressive. Aroma is not much, a little malty and nothing else. Flavor, well ,what one expects from an industrial brew. Texture, well, fizzy but not firm. This is why I prefer craft brews.
