cheap (3969) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Drank directly from a twist off bottle made in Latrobe. A little better than the regular version. Some detectable tartness in the background but just barely. Does have some of that old lager feel to it, you know, like a one year old case of cheap beer. Melanie shure has a nak for picking patriotic names, think defenders, heheh.

12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Cereal grain aroma, some toast and faint hops. The taste is grainy malts, grassy hops, mild toast/ Thin bodied.

Yes an ordinary light. Actually it's not even as great as that. It's cheap and proceeds go to help families of vets. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2012
6/5/12. 12oz bottle. Clear copper pour with a small white head. Grainy corn chip aroma with an odd bitterness. Plain adjunct flavor that reminds strongly of Miller Lite and that gang... but probably what they were going for.

decaturstevo (4931) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Straw yellow pour with light white head. Aroma is light sour malt and corn. Flavor is light malt and a sour start and a semi sweet finish. Light perfumy hops present. I will not say the hop presence is a bitter but there is something there. A light bodied beer with aggressive carbonation. ok

Aurelius (4059) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Sweet and sour, corn muffin aroma. Clear beer, cheesy label. Tastes like cereal and bitter seltzer water. Very light body, mercifully short finish. ABC Likkas, Kerry Forest Pkwy.

PorterPounder (5363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn. Pours a medium golden with a crisp white head. Aroma is nondescript and distant. Pick up some wet paper bag notes and hint of canned corn. Flavor is typical light lager, hints of grain and grass, some club soda blandness. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh and very dry.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2012
City is in Wisconsin, so I don’t think this is a Minnesota beer. Anyway, ordinary light beer, light yellow, and minimum flavor. The rep stated it has fewer calories than Bud Light or Miller Lite.

unclemattie (4132) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Golden color. Thin white head. Aroma of cardboard, corn, and steamed vegetables. Tastes like water. No shit, straight water. Ok, maybe dishwater. Finishes with a oily, soapy character. I don’t know which is worse the regular lager or this ’light’. One more thing to make the Founding Fathers roll in their grave. (3340)
