I drink this beer on tap only. The bottle doesn't do it justice. On tap, the foam is pure white and lingers in the glass until the last drop. Fresh Hops aroma comes out (just like a lager should). Easy to drink, the hops taste stays on the back palate and gives a nice after taste.

This beer really is a lifesaver when you are in a chain place that has a bad beer list with friends. It is a better than average lager that is miles ahead of anything else they will likely have on tap.

You know I like this one as much as most standard "microfare." It's got more substance than Bud or Miller or Coors. Hoppy nose and bitter hoppy taste with a grainy, breadlike wuality to the flavor. I like this one as an alternative to the big breweries, but it isn't much to brag about either.

Nothing to rip on. Clean, decent, and light. Gets bitter as it warms. No outstanding features.

Much better than I remember - decent hoppiness - buttery - respectable malt backbone - my go-to beer at places like applebees or fridays.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2003 A great lager with a nice color and hop aroma. Full of flavor...almost too much. Goes down slightly less than smoothly but really stands out. Can't compare to most cheap and common bar beers.

An ols standby as long as its fresh. Nice hop aroma. Full bodied malt flavor with a good dose of hops throughout. Pleasantly drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 On tap: Very complimentary beer with a steak. Aroma-weak. Malt was happenin. Hops were Happenin. Flavor is nice. Boy how my palate has changed over the past year. This used to overpower me now it leaves me barely satisfied . Again, you can't go wrong with this beer on tap to pair with a good steak and potato. good American Macro, (lets be honest ok).
