An aweful beer that I really can't drink. Most of the time it is skunky and old. It just has an tart and tangy aftertaste that is venomous.

This is the beer that started it all for me. Nice heavy hops, although it is slightly skunky. Very light color, but good head. Love the bottles. I will always be thankful to this beer for starting me on my journey, but since that day, I have tasted many MANY beers with better body and flavour.

Slightly golden appearance, slightly hopped, slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is metallic finishes slightly bitter. Its a lager, decent ones are so few and far between I dont know why I bother.

crisp aroma of freshly mowed grass. starts sweet and adjuncty, mild hops come in the middle, stays gassy

It's better than your average Macro Swill thats for sure, but still falls short of being a good beer. Nice creamy head, not overly carbonated like most Macros can be. Taste is a little skunky, but thats to be expected from these damm green bottles. It's not the best lager on the market, but it's definatly not the worst.

I am occasionally tricked into buying this, and I'm always disappointed.

Many years ago, this was my beer of choice when out on the town. Now it is just another plain thin Lager in a beer world already overpopulated with this style. Certainly better than American macro swill and given this as a choice, I will always take Grolsch. Can often be skunky. Like Motelpogo said, the best part of this beer is that the bottles are great for your homebrew!

Pretty good - reminds me of Heineken. Lightly hopped with an interesting aroma and taste.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Good head to it, went down smooth. Light hoppy flavor and not over powering.

I used to be a big fan of this stuff. Boy have times changed. Actually it is not that bad when you compare it to the other major brews in its class. Ok head which does not last long. Light gold/straw color. Slight aroma of nothing special (non skunky). Light crisp taste with a smooth, clean finish. A decent lager for the price.
