Probably what Budwiser tasted like before they started filling with rice. Nice lager for summer drinking.

Terrible. Worse than Budweiser. Smell (it isn’t an aroma) of corn and garbage. Taste of sewer water with a rotten fish finish. Similar to MGD. Maybe I got a bad batch...I was looking forward to trying it, and was hoping that it would at least be better than Budweiser. It isn’t.

Love Kraftig Beer. It has been my favorite beer since I tried it a few months ago. Drive to St. Louis every few weeks to stock up. Quality taste that does not come with the filling nature you may expect.

I like this beer. I’ve been practicing with AB products for about 38 years and have found all but one loaded with a grain/bitter aftertaste. The one was a product called Anheuser Marzen that was targeted against Heineken around 88 or 89. I drink many types of beers and I considered the above to be the best drinkable beer I’ve ever had. While Stouts and Ales and double bocks and microbrews make up a lot of my selections a beer that doesn’t fill you up or leave your mouth feeling as if it has sampled a chocolate and hop laden fruit basket is something I really like. Anheuser was this type of beer and Kraftig approaches that quality. A little more malt and they would duplicate that taste, however, this lager is smooth and tasty. I like it!

Bif (1292) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy head that fades to bits of lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness, bit of hops and some fresh grain. Smell is fresh and clean. Taste of mild sweetness, grain and hint of citrus. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Nice beer for what it is. Nothing fancy just a good alternative to the BMC offerings. Worth a try.

Golden pour. Sweet honey and sugary sweet malts in the nose and some floral hops. Flavor is similar and sweet and heavy. Crisp carbonation. meh.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a clear, light golden color with predictable white foam, somewhat lasting, no lace. Better than Budweiser, which I suppose is all they care about. A bit maltier than expected, very weak hops impression. Thin body, mouthfeel is somehow dusty and gritty, standard clean lager finish. Whatever.

Was in STL for new years. A friend has drinking these. Your average pale lager. Poured a pale yellow color with a small white head that was gone quick. Aroma was corn and malts. Thin and watery body. Flavor was grass and corn. Nothing to this beer. Kind of boring. Better than other beers in its style.

12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from Phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of corn, garbage, grain, malt, and cereal. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet. Tastes of malt, corn, grain, cereal, and plastic. Light body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet, malt, cereal, corn, plastic finish.

Tastes like a not-so-horrible pale lager...not bad at all really. A step above piss! I’d drink this over a Bud Light any day.
