Draft at Tuscony Suites Las Vegas. Breast malt Aromas and flavors but not much to get excited about. Typical lager. Not bad at poolside.

There something off putting, it's got a funky soapy taste. With a light cream color and creamy white head. Slight funk taste. Not for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lean yellow brew, nicely carbonated. Grain character all way through. Not much to expect but not too bad either. Good while playing slots.

Pours a straw yellow, good carbonation, not much head. laces nicely. Light aroma. Nice balanced taste, flavorful. good mouth feel. Nice bittering on back side. Would like it a bit smoother. Not a bad beer overall.

AirForceHops (4501) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. can thanks to WillRunForbeer. Hazy cloudy gold with spotty lacing. Aroma is corn husk and lager yeast.

Flavor is about the standard for adjunct lager. Rice, grain, shunky yeast, with a funky finish. American lager indeed.... No thanks. If you want to brew craft beer, brew a craft beer!!

Pours light blonde color. Taste is somewhat bitter with a not so pleasant after taste. Not something I would reach for.

Can from my trip to Vegas. Shared at my place. Pours straw with a white head. Aroma of adjunct lager. Taste of adjusted not lager. Don’t bother.
