22 oz bottle from Thriftway - Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head. Tastes like a pretty decent pale lager. I donít think there would ever be a great beer in this category, so this is probably fairly close to as good as it will get.

Awkwardly watery and weird tasting beer..... Yuck! Grainy and weird are the best two words to describe it......

Bottle in Hawaii. Hmmm... interesting. Tastes much better cold which is probably not a good sign I guess. Quite sweet as you would expect from the cane sugar. Let down by slighty chemical aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head...Aroma is pale lager with hint of pepper and citrus. Flavor is like a light lager but no gross aftertaste. This is what it is...better than macro pale lagers.

Pours a ginger ale colored body, no head. Aroma is yeast, banana and clove. Flavor is bitter and palate is crisp but metallic. An alright beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Bottle on the beach. Pours clear golden with a decent bubbly white head. Nose is mostly malt, heavy on the molasses, with a little hoppy spice. Full mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly caramel malt that turns into a weird oniony taste in the finish. Overall, not too bad.

Wow Pabst/miller actually made something worth drinking! nice dark amber color, very strong smell of hops it actually blew me away when the waitress put it infront of me, Tasts of sweetness and very smooth going down, over all a very good beer..

The flavor is a little grainy and some grassy notes. Nothing special going on here. In the aroma category itís pretty basic with some grains. Pours a golden color with a quick disappearing white head and some patchy lacing The finish is pretty clean and crisp. Has some grassy notes there. Itís pretty easy drinking. If your looking for a mindless beer this may be it.

Wortth a try, a bit sweet with unfamiliar aromas of mash and grass, not exactly pleasant. Drinkable but not really worth the $7.99 price. Brewed in CA with a Hawaiian brand.
