Bottle. Had both original and light at a party. Very light golden color with a white bubbly head. My mountains were blue. Next to no aroma, maybe some light graininess like the light but this one has some sweetness as well. Some hints of malt and a little light sweetness. More flavor than the light, but not really in a good way. I drank it very quickly though and did not spend too much time pondering the finer aspects of it. I think being unable to get this in MN in my youth brought about a mystique that increased itís popularity in my area. Itís much the same as people speak about Yuengling here in AZ. I wish I could allow those memories to affect my rating, but this is just not my favorite among the macro swill.

16-ounce cans served in a glass. While obviously a budget beer, this has more flavor than Budweiser, and I was not disappointed by it at all. Granted, I went in with very low expectations, but it was still quite a bit better than I figured.

Backlog. Simple and straightforward american pale lager. Had many 6 packs of this at house parties back in school. Meh. Apple, corn, cardboard. Light with little in the way of character. Forgettable.

Draught at Stateside Craft, Vancouver
Pale blond color. The aroma is more fruity than expected, like a lemonade/Radler. The flavor is watery, almost sweet as it has no bitterness.
Not pleasant, not a beer, not offensive either.

Can shared at a tasting at our place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Clear gold with a white head. Lemony aroma with a little hay. Slightly bitter taste with a little straw. Very light body, fizzy, slightly bitter finish.
