I like the bottle shape, kind of like some old brands of root beer, so I give it an appearance point for that. Otherwise...pours extremely clear and thin, with a big but very fast-dying head; aroma is very sweet-malty, but also somewhat stale. Flavor also has a fair amount of malt, but again a certain staleness and something of a cardboard/wet paper character creeps in. Finishes a might bitter, thin, stale. A little better than, say, Michelob, but at the price you pay in USA totally skippable.

Bit more flavor then the mega brewery products, but nothing stood out as particularly notable. It was good when I was hot and they were cold.

Pale yellow. Sweet, bland and easily forgettable.

Not sure why anyone would pay the money for it, but if I get handed one I won’t turn it down.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 I have to really go out on a limb here. I like this. It isn’t bold flavor wise but it really is a fine basic beer. It has a mild sweetness that has kind of a breaddy mouthfeel. This has become a fave

Good Beer but pricey. We could have gotten MGD for less. Tastes pretty much the same.
