Nice and somewhat sweet. Very good roasted maltiness with a light cereal feel.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smoth. Flavors of bread and spicy hops with a smooth dry finish. Actually better than I expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours bright yellow gold with a creamy white head, lots of lacing, persistent but becomes thin. Lot’s of bubbles Lightly sweet and bready pale pilsener malt, light twinge of noble hops.
Taste is basically the same. Sweetish aftertaste. Inoffensive but I wish it had a bit more crispness in the mouth.
This is a nostalgic brand. Being that I am not a native of New England I can say it’s no better or no worse than a lot of industrial lagers but doesn’t particularly appeal to me.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest (disclaimer - memory somewhat blurred after perhaps a few too many samples) Even though I knew better I tried some anyway. Yup. Same as I remember it from 30 years ago. Why would they keep this brand alive?

Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Terrible skunky and metallic nose. Taste is pretty foul. Industrial macro pilsener that you would not want to drink for any reason.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2010 Draft @ SBC. Typical yellow corn macro beer. Pretty gross. One of those beers that you gotta drink ice cold in order to tolerate. Don’t try it.

I thought this was brewed in Rhode Island! That would have been a new state for me as of this rating, but it looks like I’m still chasing it. Damn. Anyway, I got this in a 16-oz. can at Redbones in Somerville. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Aroma of corn, hops, grains, and sweet malts. Flavor is about the same. Sweet and malty. Dry corny finish. Not the worst fizzy yellow swill around, but it still falls in that category.
