3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty typical Pale Lager, a little bit of corn, a light vegetal undertone, zero hops. The flavor is fairly clean though, there’s certainly corn in here, but it’s not terribly center stage. Still a lack of hops in here, but I suppose that’s to be expected. Still miles better than most macro Pale Lagers. It’s actually pretty crisp on the finish with a short tight finish. Not a bad drinker, among the better efforts in the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft->shaker. Clear gold with medium white head. Aroma and taste are cereal, grains, and lager malt. Better than Bud, but that is faint praise indeed.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz can. Pours golden with a massive white head and probably the fizziest beer I’ve ever seen. This head was still building 2 minutes after the pour. Grainy aroma plus some other nasty stuff I can’t identify. Typical pale lager flavor, mostly watery grain but probably more flavor than most other examples of the style. Light bodied. Nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells sweet and malty with a slightly metallic grassy hop note and a bit of apple cider. Flavor is pretty much right there also. Sweet and malty up front, sweeter than I would normally like, but does taste malty rather than just sugary like most others in the category. The metallic hoppiness comes out about midway and reigns in the sweetness a bit before the finish. Carbonation is moderate and doesn’t bite too hard.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Probably better than most mild and light American lagers, but let us not pretend there is anything memorable about this beer other than its history. An easy drinker and they probably get easier the more you drink. More warmth than Bud. I think my local store had a placard noting this beer as being rated 93. The scale must have been 500. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a lot of history in the region and is still very popular with those who have been around for a while. It is a pretty mild lager which probably explains its longevity. There isn’t much malt flavor and the hops are minimal.
