Headbanger (3366) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz bottle Brewed by Miller (old Notes)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was a pretty darn tasty brew back in the day.

This is the best of the 70’s swinger beers.

Nastrass (58) - Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Nice darker brown color. Medium head, with little lace. Decent malt flavors, with a little too much sweetness. Not as good as I remember, but then those were the college years.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours out brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, light biscuit and some grain. Flavor is caramel and some light roasted malt. Mouth a little thin. Not too shabby for the style.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Very close to Heineken Dark in taste, but maybe a bit bitter and not quite as good. Decent malt body. Surprisingly drinkable.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Much better than the original. Better malt and overall impression. Slight toastiness.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Weak malt nose and light bodied, Miller's version of this famous brew is uncomplicated though refreshing. The subtle malt finish fades very quickly.

freekyp (1533) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2003
Nice malty nose. Deep chestnut body with medium, but quickly diminishing head. Decent caramel malt character throughout with bit of hops at finish. Not bad.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Nice malty aroma with small head. Malty creamy feel and taste but a little watered down. Just average for a darkie.

MOJOAG (2) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2007 does not count
FLAVOR IS ROBUST. AFTERTASTE IS STRONG AND TART. APPEARANCE OUT OF BOTTLE IS CRISP AND CLEAR, BUT BELIES THE FLAVOR.
