Bottle-Memphis. Very disappointing. Was looking forward to a crisp, refreshing lager and wound up with a stale beer - I guess this is the AB trademark.

Liked it more than Asahi. Not bad...although I was amused by the "brewed under strict supervision by Anheuser-Busch in Los Angeles" wording on the bottle. Anyone who thinks there is supervision in LA as strict as in Japan hasn’t lived in LA.

Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours with a bright yellow color, thin head, medium level of carbonation. The taste is slightly bitter, crisp, dry except for some bitterness -- in the finish. GOOD BEER

Tastes like shit, looks like shit, smells like shit. Do you get where i am going from here? One of the worst beers i have ever had. I would rather drink a skunky 40oz then this stuff

Had at Chang's Mongolian Grill. Largely unspectacular. Hints of malt. Slight hops in the finish. Still more flavor than a BMC. Oh, and on the bottle it said it was brewed under the supervision of the Kirin Brewmaster by Anheuser-Busch Los Angeles Ca.

Looks like your standard American fare, but some hints of malt. It went well with the Hibachi food at the restaraunt and did compliment the ginger flavors in the salad dressing.

Standard fare lager, though slightly more enjoyable than American macro lagers. Clean and crisp with course carbonation.

Draught. Ok, let keep this simple. This tastes like corn and sugar. Corn and sugar. Not even fresh corn. Canned corn and sugar. It’s not good.
