Bottle: Found some old notes that I had tasted these in the States many years ago. To be honest I canít remember that much of these beers, but next to the beers name I wrote a little bit of info. So these notes are for me, to ensure and complete my list and to use this database as mine too. If you want to consider this as a tick, do so. It is for my own record, that I know I had tasted it once. Nice bitter but a bit watery.

Even when it was cheap, this wasnít so good. Now that they went nuts and raised the price, it tastes even worse.

Nice everyday lager. The beer tastes fresh, clean and balanced. Nice tang of hops - more than I ever experienced from Miller or Bud products - and easy to drink. I like it and would recommend it to people who enjoy íregular American lager.í I donít know why more people in Minnesota donít drink this on a regular basis.

Rivals even Premium for top honors when it is from the tap or bottle instead of the can.

LibraryBrewer (50) - Goodridge, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Old rate from about 7 years ago.Golden color,corn and cerealish aroma with a teasing of hops.Tastes pretty weak with the grains and corn being the predominant flavor with just a slight more hops then the previous brews from these people.Ehhh.

Decent mass produced brew. Think Budweiser, only cheaper.
