Tap. A good show for its style, but not a complex or interesting beer. Re-rate 10/6/02: I picked up a lot of malt and chocolate flavors when I had this last night. It had more body and was far more interesting than on previous samples. The beer gods were shining on my glass last night.

Average beer. Dry and somewhat sweet. Nothing special.

Re-rate:a good beer to have when you can’t be bothered to think about what you’re drinking, coz it actually surprises you when you are in these types of moods, quite thin, yet flavourful, uninspiring, yet drinkable. different for a lager, OK.

Coppery colour, medium head, a few hops in the aroma with agood malty body. Reasonable enough. My bottle had "The best beer in America" on it so it loses a point or two for that wank.

I don’t know why they sell this everywhere and not the Boston Ale. I suppose it’s a good amber lager, but just not my style. Miles ahead of Coors, Bud, Rolling Rock, and any other ubiquitous beer.

Lt brown color, small head. A nice malty and hoppy beer. Flavor is mild, full mouthfeel. Good balance. A simple beer, but well made. Nice beer. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Certainly better than other popular American lagers or standards (Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.) Decent to look at with a reddish golden hue. Somewhat mettalic taste but at least you can tell there are hops used as opposed to the big boy adjuncts (rice, corn). Average.

Medium amber clear under a very large fast fading yellow head with some random lace. Aroma is quite interesting for a lager - light peppery, less sweet more sappy floral and celery like with some nectar and caramel as it warms. Medium thin body and not as carbonated as others have said. Flavours initially closely match aroma together with something woody and sufficient bitter to create a bit of balance and interest. This beer has more of a english cask ale feel to it than a lager. I also get a faint bitter and chicken noodle soupy salty like finish. Is this really a lager???
