They may have changed the recipe over the years to make it less hoppy, but this beer is still a good hearty hop supper. Very clean, quite hoppy, floral, fresh. Certainly one of the better widely available north american lagers.

Drinkable. Slightly grainy. Finishes dry. Almost tastes like a Cali Common.

Decent. Carmel in the nose with a little hops. Tan/ amber color, but not much in the way of a head. Tastes more like an american Pale Ale than a lager. Carmel notes with undertones of grapefruit, A little bitterness towards the end.

Definitely an average beer and nothing I’d go out of my way to find. I’ve had much tastier lagers, and this one seems kinda sweet.

I used to think that this was a really wonderful beer. That was back in the days of when I drank Bud,etc. This is still a decent beer, better than those macrobrews of days past, this beer could be called my gateway beer to better beers I have found. Malty, amber colored and drinkable.

It’s slightly more bitter than the standard American lagers. I wasn’t impressed.

Hmm... has a malt liqour taste in a fancy bottle. It has a extremely bitter taste. If your looking for bad beer you might want to try of 40oz of malt liquor.. hey at least you get more.. If it wasnt brewed in Milwaukee its not worth drinking

i had never been very impressed by this beer when i had tried it previously. but i decided to try it again and its not too bad. decent hop and malt flavor but still its nothing that i would drink on a regular basis
