Not a very good beer. It was just way to skunky. Any flavor or aroma was dominated by the skunky taste. I will never order this one again.

Not anything outstanding, but around my arean this is some high quality stuff, you order one of these people raise thier eye brows. not what the drunks drink. if there is no becks i can stomach this stuff. the two are somewhat similar.

Used to be way back in my time you could look cool like Mick Jagger if you walked around a bar with one of these in your hand. That's about all it was good for back then, and today it's just not good for much. There's so much better stuff you can spend your money on. Don't fall for the marketing and the rep. Avoid.

Blond and bland. Inoffensive, but entirely lacking in character. Nothing much else to say really.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 I end up getting it sometimes in the $2, 24 ounce bottles as a "backup", along with a six of something good.

the only foreign beer skunkier is grolsch. hard to believe that i used to think this was one of the best beers out there. wow, how i've grown to appreciate beer. this beer does not hold a candle to the great micro-brews of today!

Before I learned too much about beer, this was my favorite beer. It's okay, but there's nothing great about it, really. Not bad either.

standard pissy color with a skunk nose. carbonated water. i can get some cheaper lager with basically the same taste. you can do better for your money.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Very pale straw-coloured beer with a thin head fading to thin lace. Has a sweet malty smell with plenty of great fruity-smelling esters. I don’t know what the skunky smell everyone else is talking about is, I’ve never gotten that impression. I think this is a pretty good straight-forward lager.
