12oz bottle 12/9/15 (Crown Plaza-STL)-Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of the same along with some sweetness. This light bodied brew is not bad.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear bright gold with a nice white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is the same. Like a previous rater stated " I wanted to like it more".

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caught my eye at my local HyVee, love Euro lagers and a name like Kräftig sounds Euro enough. Aroma is corn, dough and slight copper. Pours a pale gold with hardly any carbonation and virtually no head. Taste is grains, corn with a watery finish. Not the worst, but I wanted to like it more.

12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of sweet corn and grain malt. Sweet malt, slick texture, grain and corn, a little more flavor than the light. Reminds me of grain belt premium.

Give William K Busch credit for providing an American owned answer to AB’s sellout, Miller, Coors, etc. All no longer American. Kraftig is American and provides a tasteful alternative to other beers in it’s class, like Miller, Budweiser, etc. To be honest, I prefer Pabst to this, but this is a very close second. Can be compared to European style lagers, but to be honest, should not be. But does defeat most of it’s in-class competitiors.

Can - drank straight from can, very sweet light malty aroma and flavor, very typical pale lager, maybe a fraction better in that category

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden brew with decent head. Smells and tastes like a typical grainy lager with not much to set it apart from other boring lagers. Decent but not worth the extra money to buy. For about $2 less per six pack I could have just got Coors or MGD and had just a good a beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a high off-white head and lots of visible carbonation. Nose is sugar, earthy mushroom, tinfoil, and adjunct. Not as sweet on the tongue, but with a hollow midpalate and not much flavor to it; there’s a little white pepper and spice to liven it up, but not much. Finish is short and a little hot. Unremarkable.

This was okay. Tastes like a typical adjunct lager. Something mildly unpleasant in the taste.
