Had this a couple of years ago, and it was nothing special, so no wonder they got rid of it. Fear not, they just brought back their crappy "pilsner" to replace it.

Octoberfest Coloring with Sandy Head. Sweet Malty Aroma...Very Subtle.. Sweet Malt, with a Light Hoppy Background....Very Bitter Finish... On the Darker Side of Pale Lagers but Good Session Style.

Thanks again heemer! Light ruby hue with a small, off-white head. Toasted dark bread, cereal, caramelized pale malt. Light herb hops. A little nutty with hints of butterscotch. Light sweetness thoughout with a crisp finishing bitterness. Acidity is a touch stronger than I’d like to be tasting. Above average carbonation is spot on; medium body with a watery, nearly creamy, texture.

Light amber color with a moderate yellowish head. Some lace. Light pale malt and mild floral hops. A touch sharp and earthy in the finish. I do believe these brews maybe improving.

Not too original yellowish haze, decent body, nice for an american lager. better then most actually. I would recommend it.

Perhaps it is because lagers are so difficult to identify. This beer I found equally difficult to rate. My sense is that it was a disappointing beer by both flavor and aroma. The trouble is that neither are easy to determine why. Instead of making the effort, maybe I will just go get another brand of beer.

Horrible brew. tart, tangy and undrinkable. This could be a bad batch but the beer was aweful!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2002
A deep copper color, clear, the head is average, beige, the lace is also adequate. Nose is malt, the front sweet, the top is light, the finish is lightly carbonated, dry, and a fair hop presence, a bit thin in the end won’t score many points with me. Ranks #864 on my current 1000 beer master list.

A very clean, smooth, light lager. Slightly under-carbonated.
