Good Golden Color. light bready malt aroma.You can taste the grains and hops with a nice balance, some hint of citrus and a clean finish. Very Nice.

I had this at Fridays. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, like a mass produced lager. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ahhh, Billy Busch’s latest venture. Pours a very clean, yellow color with a frothy, bright white head with decent staying power. Carbonation is very high. Aroma has a strong sour Noble hops nose with a lot of grain. Flavor starts off with a light grassy, orangy, sour Noble hops characteristics which transitions into a pretty sweet pale malt flavor and finishes with light grainy and grassy notes. The flavor actually transitions instead of being one dimensional which is seen a lot in macro pale lagers. Body is light, very fizzy with a touch of oily texture at the end where you expect a crisp feeling. Overall a respectable brew. You can tell there no adjuncts used in the brew as the graininess really stands out. Avoid the ocular Pavlovian response associated with the name Busch, this is a stylistically respectable brew.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 The beer’s color is a pure golden color, which is nice to see in a pale lager, with very little head, but the aroma is just yeasty, which is expected in this style. The beer is mildly sour, slightly salty, and a tad sweet, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, light to medium body, thin texture, and an abrupt finish. Overall, this beer is quite a typical American pale lager without being disappointing, like Budweiser, Coors, and Miller often are.

I'm going to go ahead and give this beer a top rating. Hats off for trying to bring the family name back to the United States, where it belongs! This beer is not meant to compete with our desirable craft beer industry, but rather put up a new fight to the bought out Budweiser! Keep up the good fight! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Clear and yellow/tan with a surprisingly decent head, lots of bubbles, some lace. Aroma is quite subdued, with some graininess and a little sweetness. Taste is ok, not great but decent enough. A little sweetness accents a primarily grainy flavor, with a little touch of hops, but not really enough. Body is pretty good. It’s got a bit of thickness to it, despite being quite easy to drink and well carbonated. Overall it’s decent enough for the masses. Won’t make the craft beer front page but it ain’t bad. Needs more hops, this would greatly improve this beer.

Onslow (1131) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle, six pack from Walgreen’s in St. Louis.. Light amber colored beer with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts and light hops. Taste is sweet - light caramel malts at the start finishing with sweet malts and light bitterness. Light all around, fitting for a lager. Not bad but a little too sweet.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma and taste was pretty much malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
