Great introductory dark beer. Pairs with most food. One that I could (and have) drink all day.

Malty , clean finish. My favorite big co. Amber beer. Lacks some of the taste of microbrews though.

Living in Japan,I realize I actually miss this beer.I like soft brown beers occasionally. This is one of those easy drinking beers that is difficult to complain about. Really nice session beer or great when served in mixed company when you donít want to seem like an asshole and push your own brand heaviness. No one will complain here.
For an American macro product, I have to say itís quite nice and can enjoyed year round. Soft taste,very smooth and easy mouth feel. Nothing really bad here at all.

Bowling alley beer. Better than the worst, but not much else. Actually looks pretty good. But after that, disappointing.

Pours a medium dark color with a less than average head of foam for a tap beer and it also diminished quickly. About the only scent I could gather was a little bit of a malt scent. Had a fairly mild taste of malts with about an average texture to it. A decent beer for Anheuser-Busch, but doesnít stand a chance against a craft breweryís bock.

On tap. Pours a rich brown. For a pretty good looking beer, taste is completely absent. Mostly water. Not repulsive, just not much there.

Bottle. Better than many of the BMC swill options but still nothing to write home about. Still works as our goto option when nothing else is available. Is actually pretty great to cook with.

Tap at Miami International. The poursís Deep brown with a small head. Nose is some caramel, nut, little else. The taste is brown sugar and water. Boring profile. Thin and lifeless. Overall, not great.

I usually drink this one on tap when alternatives are limited. My overall impression is of a mediocre beer, really no distinguishing characteristic. The color is deceptively dark, more brown than amber, giving way to an overly light body without much hop character. Itís drinkable but could be smoother, and it heads well.
