An old stand-by when better beers aren't available. Typical lager, usually well hopped, but sometimes inconsistent.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 A very good American beer. Has a nice light reddish color. As far as flavor goes it tastes so much better than the generic American beers. there are better, but this is pretty good

(Tap) I taste grapefruit when I taste this one. Enjoyable and easily drunk from the tap.

Aroma light and hoppy, but malt detected as well. Color a rich gold with a nice canyoned head---very attractive...Hops dominate the flavor profile, quite sharp and almost strident, while malt is barely discernible; the finish is hoppy-dry and slightly spicy. Body is sort of watery, and the balance is definitely hop-heavy. Overall, the strong hop profile makes it preferable to most macro-brews, but is still wanting in terms of balance and roundness of flavors.

I like this beer. It has been some time since I have had some, but upon pouring a bottle tonight I was impressed. Amber-copper colored with a nice head. Although the head didn't last long, the lacing of the glass was there until the end. What aroma was there was hoppy. The taste was malty and ever-so-slightly fruity. Dry finish with some bitterness. I felt that this beer was fairly balanced with a leaning to the malty side. Would make a great first or second step to the wonderful world of real beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 Very nice, had from keg, good light brown color with little head yet decent lacing. A little bitter (left me wanting to try the ale) but tasty going down and leaves you wanting more.

I generally enjoy lagers but I did not care for the taste of this. A little to musky for me. If I want a malt flavor I would drink a Scottish ale. If I want bitter an ESB. I was expecting more for the price.

Bright amber color. Moderate body and bitterness. Toasty character with earthy notes and bitter hop flavors in the finish. Assertive and tasty beer.
