Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.

Great taste and aroma. It is also pretty cheap.

This was actually a very good beer when it was brewed by Heilemanís instead of contract brewed for Pabst by Miller. Enough history. Clear light straw with a medium high off white head. Aroma of dextrose and alcohol(when warmer). Mild flavor of pale malt and corn. Very dry and unassuming finish. Slightly better than most lights but generally just a beer for having people over for a game beer.

Not really all that good, and why did it have to come in talls only?

Harder to find these days. Better than a lot of light beers that are out there. Iíd take it over Bud Light or Miller Lite any day. It actually has some TASTE for a light beer...and okay taste at that. Too bad Heilemann ended up going under...Miller seems to have no interest in even selling this beer unless they have to.

A decent light. Very clear color with a corn aroma. Women from NW Wisconsin seem to enjoy this brew.

On tap at a La Crosse Loggers baseball game. As a light beer, this is better than average, but it is still a relatively bland lager. Some corn notes keeps the palate interested, if only for a moment or two.

Served in a green bottle. Skunky-flavored beer originally from LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Staple of my college and early post-college days. Golden, small head, skunky beer smell that let you know it was there. Quite quaffable, actually. Watered-down version of the original.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a light clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just another light calorie pale lager. Better than expected.

From a 16 oz. can. Poured a medium gold with a little carbonation. Light aroma of pears and carrots. The taste is metallic with strong carrots and celery. There is not much else to comment on with this light beer. IT is not offensive, but needs a little character.

16 oz can. pours a pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head, not a lot of carbonation. definitely a corn flavor to this beer. watery with a hint of a bite to it. i think it tastes better than its fuller brother.
