The aroma of this beer isnít that unique due to its typical lager scent: sour dough yeast and bread malts. The appearance is also typical with its bubbly consistency, light yellow color, and medium white head that fades quickly. Continuing with the "typical" trend, this beerís flavor has a mild sourness and a slight sweetness, and the palate fuses a medium body, thick texture, abrupt finish, and an average carbonation.

One of the better Pale Lagers I have tasted. Better aftertaste than other more commercial lagers.

Being in my Fifties, I really want to like this beer. It was big when we were kids. All of our fathers drank this beer, or beers like it. It is cool to stand there with a can of Pabst in your hand, but you have to literally choke the beer down. Schlitz I would drink no matter what. Itís good. Hammís is in the middle. It has the cool of Pabst but it is drinkable. It tastes like the beer we drank in high school.

12oz can. Nasty smelling stuff--cheap, industrial, korny. Dirty cheap taste, mouthfeel is ugly too. High carbonation. Not the worst beer Iíve ever had, but close.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright and vivid yellow color with a huge soapy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sour, corny, very tangy, industrial and a bit fusel. The flavor was sour, tangy, very corny and very industrial. Medium length corn and industrial lager finish. Thin body. Pretty awful even for this category.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can at home, courtesy of adnielsen. Thanks a lot Aaron. Pour is clear straw yellow with a big white head and good lacing. Sweet corny, grainy aroma - straw, biscuit, light grass, heavy metallic notes, and dough. Taste is grainy, cereal, metallic, sweet corn, biscuit, and dough. Light body with huge carbonation. Not a very good beer, but easy-drinking and I would definitely choose it over a number of macro lagers.

Saw it at Food Maxx. Was always kind of scared of cheap lager. Back in the day i remember cheap beer tasted kinda nasty. After drinking good ales for a long time, i sort of migrated back to the pale lager. I just like a refreshing beer, and not the big huge meal of an IPA every time. Anyway, I drank some Miller High Life at the horse races, and it wasnít so bad. That kinda sprawled me into this cheap beer thing. I like how a lot of these cheap beers have a lot of history, etc. So I tried the PBR a few times... even out of the keg Iím just not feeling that one. I buy the miller high life every now and then. I bought a few tall cans of Busch one day, and Man, was I impressed with that one. I guess itís hit or miss. Anyway, saw this stuff and food maxx and had to give it a go. 12 bucks for 24 cans.
Pours with a two finger head that reduces to a lasting film of bubbles that leave tiny amounts of lacing. Probably just a dirty glass who the hell knows. Anyway, the first sip of this stuff wasnít so pleasant. The overpowering taste was metal. And metal kinda has a bitter flavor, right? So now Iíve had one or two, and Iím thinking- thatís not metal, itís hops. Metal ones. So now i have a decent tasting, nicely-hopped-for-a-lager drink, and you know what? Iím gonna have another one. Nothing to do with the beer, itís just cuz iím an alcoholic. I donít mind this stuff. Will buy again.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours a clear very pale yellow body with a one inch frothy white head that actually had pretty decent retention. The nose is mostly corn with a bit of a cooked vegetable note that is a bit of a turn off. The flavor is pretty similar to what youíd expect from the aroma. Light corn and straw with a veggie laced finish. The finish is pretty short and actually on the cleaner side for a Pale Lager. Light bodied and fizzy with a slight clinginess. About on par with the average for the style.

Can from LeninCat. Poured into a tulip. Beautiful pale golden hay with a little pillow of white head. Aroma and taste of sweet nothings. Could shotgun this all night.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can @ home. Picked up a twelver for Cubs opening day. Been working on the fucker since them. Pours a clear golden appearance with a decent off white head. Tons of corn, vanilla, dull hops, and bland grains in the nose. Somewhat watery, a bit metallic, slightly spicy, corny, a touch fruity flavor. Decent pale lager but really kind of a worthless beer.
