   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 6/20

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Canned. I got a sixer to compare it to LaCrosse Lager, which is now being microbrewed in the original Old Style brewery. Even without a comparison, I could tell this was the loser. Corny taste among other adjuncts at work. Although there is... wait a minute... a hint of hops and yeasty lager taste poking through at the end. So not totally beyond redemption. Better than crappy Budweiser. Guess that’s why Wrigley Field switched to Bud: bad team, bad beer. Slight re-rate, Nov. 03: I moved it up a notch after having another, and finding it still does what it does best: get you happy in a hurry.

canned, thanks to Art, old school grainy corn lager, nice clean sweet flavor, antiseptic aroma, mild thin palate

Tap. Buttery. Strong corn taste. Sweet. Nothing special here folks. End of notes from last night.

Another run-of-the-mill lager that I drank when young...and on a budget. Details foggy, but low rating is accurate.

Not bad, from a pounder can. Taste like many other cheaper pale lagers and although its not over the top in personality, it does come across as a little more processed, perhaps like a beer made by city brwing. Decent and somewhat refreshing fer sure. Not sure if I could handle more than a few of these babies.

I used to drink this in college, before there was good beer in the US. It was peer pressure, I guess, since they were from Chicago and I was a New Yorker. I felt like I had to drink it, especially on football weekends. I didn’t like it very much and I used any excuse to avoid drinking it.

On tap at Wrigley because that is probably the best (only) place you should drink this. Pours clear yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland, sweet grainy malts, some skunky notes, grass. I was at Wrigley though. I have heard stories that this wasn’t as bad many years ago.

Had it out of a can, yeah!! Better than I thought! It is what it is. Macro

bbrock81 (309) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - APR 9, 2014
12 oz. can. Generic pale lager. Better than BMC by a long shot, still with the sweet corn/grain flavor, but actually fairly crisp and clean. One of the best of the "old school" pale lagers. Superior to PBR, Rolling Rock, Hamm’s, etc.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Pale golden with small head. Watery lager with corn and grain. Uninspiring, but not awful.

Can from Paddys O Fagans. Poured yellow. Light carb med bod. Light grainy wheat corn taste.
