12oz bottle. Light red color, medium head. Light taste, some malts, and slight hops. Light body. Somewhat typical of American mass produced beers. Another bad attempt by a macro to try to make a micro.

Back before I knew what craft beer was, I used to find this quite drinkable. As mich as I hate to admit that. Amber coloring( food grade caramel coloring ), with a fizzy and quickly fading white head. This is no longer enjoyable.

Draft. This sure wan’t a Killians, wasn’t even close. However, it was drinkable, not very enjoyable, but drinkable nonetheless.

Tried this long ago and it was a poorly made rip off of Killians. sad when a huge company like AB can’t get it right..

If its sold at the supermarket id rather have this than any other macro. Its light bodied and light flavored and the color is probably faked too. But its not that bad, has some hopiness and caramel malts, good carbonation and dry finish.

bottle - Can A-B any more obviously try to rip off Killian’s? It’s a decent looking beer, amber with a bit of a head. The aroma and flavor are dominated by malts. The body is thin and the finish short and clean. It’s okay, but I’m not impressed. I haven’t seen this beer much lately so I’m guessing the attempt to market it like a Killian’s clone didn’t work out too well for A-B.

Pours a nice medium amber color. Aromas of malt and maybe something sweet. Flavor is bland, watery, and bland.

Didnt realize this was an AB product, had it during st pats in Philly 2003. We had a bucket of them, very thin mouthfeel with a touch of malt in the finish. A poor try to push into new markets, but decent for AB
