For me, this represents a super carbonated corn product ,cheap watery and certainly overpriced. Again, another In-Bev product riding on marketing reputation and no substance. For me it means an instant migraine headache and stomach woes. Popular in the 70’s but has lost a lot of fan boys.

Bottle. Barely perceptible malt aroma. Pale gold with a moderate white head. Sweet grainy malt flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Very malt oriented. Dirty malt and some light herbal hops. Taste is about the same. Very light bitter and sweet. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation. Overall, it’s ok. I’ve had much worse in the pale lager category.

Ahh, the beers of my youth, when there was almost nothing but pale lagers, and I knew nothing about beer styles. We drank this one when we had the money for it, because we believed the marketing that said it was a premium beer. Well, maybe it was, who knows? At this point I’ll never go back.

Fatehunter (1340) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Finger of head, low retention. Clear, medium straw colored body. Smell has the faintest scent of grain. Taste is sweet then a nice bitterness with a slight (not nice) metallic flavor. Texture is crisp with moderate to high carbonation and a medium body. Descent but missing a solid scent and taste profile.

Really not terrible, and for the category quite good. The flavor it has is crisp and refreshing. If you have a shot of 151/amaretto and a bic lighter, you’re in for a good time!

Bottled (Thanks John!). Quite yellowish golden colour, small white head that vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is grains, bread, some slight maizelike notes as well as mild tomatosaucelike strangeness. Flavour is quite similar with some slight rubbery and cardboardy notes. Rather watery and thin.

Well, it's better than Ultra. Probably just wont drink anything if this is all that is around. Boo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Bud’s richer brother. Marginally better than Bud. A safe choice when entertaining non craft beer types if you want them to think you’re a big spender.

Had on tap at Rendezvous in Memphis. Arrived looking like a typical American lager; crystal clear pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma wasn’t much, a little bit of hay and grassy hops were all I could pick up. The flavor had more in the way of breadyness. Hops are nearly nonexistent. Just the lightest in the way of bitterness with no real hop flavor. Overall, a good beer to wash down barbecue with but that’s about it. Not something I would really seek out.
