Is it me, or does the consistency vary greatly? I once had a fresh draft in Boston that was so wonderful in hop aroma and flavor. Yet the bottle version seems to age rapidly. Regardless, this is my house beer and always will be.

pours amber with a small white head. floral hop aroma, some malt character. dry finish, slightly metalic. not a bad amber lager.

why do people like this? It's just an average american lager. It's a little darker and has more flavor than coors or Bud but that's not saying much. Drink real beer!

Not that bad. I like their Oktoberfest. Amber color with a white foamy head. For a mass produced beer not bad at all.

Not bad. I liked Oktoberfest better though. Pretty average color and virtually no aroma. But the taste was alot better than most. I wouldn't mistake this for some frat beer.

Not bad as far as mass produced comercial beers go. Starts off with a strong nutty flavour and quickly disiates to nothing but a "cheap beer" after taste; unfortunate, but drinkable if there is nothing else around.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2003 I really like this beer and I'm not sure if it used to be better a few years ago but it wouldn't surprise me.Either way I still love this beer.The best "advertised beer"(eww yuk).Fat head/good lace/great hop aroma/Malt fest that is unique and enjoyable yet overfilling.3.5 on draft/3.0 in bottles.On draft it's the real thing.The bottles are cooked a bit.

I'm not a lager fan, they serve to quench my thirst only. But this is a lager I would request, it's nicely hopped, more than I expected from a lager, and the nutty flavor is also a pleasant surprise for me. It's a good brew.
