Clear golden colour with a midsized white head. Nose is malty, flavour is sweet with a dry finish. A basic lager.

Pale gold, fizzy white head. Light malts, fairly sweet. Light, watery body. Decent for a Miller brew.

A nice local beer for me, has a strong taste for its low price, a good alternative to bud and miller, as the person below put it, nostalgia from my family drinking it makes this a biased opinion

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2004 I first had this lager while visiting the University of Oregon health sciences center a dozen years ago. The B&B where I stayed had an open fridge stocked with this brew for the guests. Beats the hell out of fresh baked cookies. Pours golden with a white head. Much more substance here than the mainstream Miller attempts, but nostalgia makes me want to say that it was better in the old days.

Clean, crisp taste. I was really impressed by this beer. I would buy it again. My roommate and I tried it at a bar that was supposed to have over 100 beers but unfortunately they call zima, mike's hard bitch-ade and other drinks my girlfriend would drink beers. Plus the real beers they had I have already tasted.

Gold pour small whitish head, little lacing. Light aromas of malt and hops. Flavor much the same. Nothing very extraordinary about this one.

Sorry to let anyone down but even though the bottle may look nice and the pour may look nice, the beer doesnt quite do it for me.

Not really much happening with this brew. Not much taste or flavor. Make sure to drink cold.

This was our college beer and really pretty good compared to most macrobrews. Unfortunately, its not brewed at the old Portland brewery, so its not some of its sentimentality. I imagine 20 or more years ago, this was considered "premium" beer, but nowadays it just comes across as another pale american lager.
