On tap at Old Chicago. Appearance: finger of white head, amber color, clear, good lace. Aroma: wheat, light citrus. Palate: light body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Taste: sweetish with light bitter finish. Overall, very drinkable and enjoyable for what it is. Great for downing six watching a game or something.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml, at home, @10°C
A true beer by which all lagers should be judged. The full flavored body and hoppiness with hints of citrus make it one of my favourite US lagers.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
OK I have to say that this is still a decent lager BUT it is just not the same as the US original , it's overly carbonated and definitely has a thinner mouthfeel and if I am honest I can taste that Shepherd Neame brewed it. I don't buy what Jim Koch said which was that if you preferred the imported original then you were enjoying the taste of oxidisation, this is just not the same...

Bottle at the Atlanta airport. Drank from bottle. Aroma is nutty, bread, dough, some floral. The taste is muted but a hint or each aroma. Medium-light body. Light carbonation. OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
As lagers go, this is up there with the best. Very hoppy, but smooth, I enjoy its inclussion in the variety packs as I probably would choose a more unique beer when shopping. The old standby.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I quite like this. Dark orange with handsome white head. Bready, slightly nutty aroma. Sweet flavours of malt, and the aroma hops give a nice clean finish. Caramel there too. Forgot how decent this one was.
