DrSilverworm (8363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. 12oz bottle. Clear golden, slight orange color. Off-white head. Solid lace. Thicker ridges. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, sort of rough lighter carbonation. Bready malt, some macro-type bite. Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter. Mild bit of tart. Some funk, macro bite. No. Great terrible lager.

BVery (7896) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Clear pale gold to yellow pour with a small dissipating white head. Corn, toast, grain, mild sweetness. Fairly clean. Not totally awful, but not a good beer, either.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, pale straw color, clear, head does not last, ok lacing. Aroma: light fruit, and floral, light wheat. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, thin texture. Taste: light sweet fruit and what, into light caramel and finishes slightly floral bitter. Overall, decent for the style, but nothing amazing. Very drinkable. Like bud or coors, but with actual flavor.

cheap (4530) - Beaver Valley, 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.

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 (6771) - 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 (5410) - 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
