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.

Decent beer, nothing special, a good standby for when your options are limited, and a good introductory beer for the uninitiated.

Slightly hoppy nose, great head. Crisp, full flavor, a bit hoppy, not at all watered-down. Definitely one of my favorite "everyday beers." At the same price as brews such as Heineken and other mediocre imports, you can't go wrong.

Not bad, it had a good hop and malt taste. I may be biased though since I was camping all week and it was the first beer I’d had in a while.

I like this beer a lot. There isn’t anything special about it, but I don’t get sick of it easily. My favorite thing about it is the balance; both the hops and malt are good and strong, but neither overpowers the other.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Nice amber color with decent head. Aroma is bready/wheat and it showed up in the aftertase too. When you have a limited selection I would always go with this one.

The origional. Pretty damn good. It is very hard to tell apart taste wise from Black Lager, maybe cause I had too many, but it was very good, but a little rougher than Black Lager. I would buy it.

Haha. I love the snobs on here! This beer has nut and fruit flavors, is really well-balanced, and tastes great over and over. Anyone who doesn’t appreciate it is being a twat, "Oh, piff, a lager, well, it’s not nearly hopped enough, or burnt enough, or black enough, or heavy enough..." Haha, fuck you, snobs. Funny that you think you’re high-cultured when you can’t taste a good beer unless it smacks you hard in the face with an overkill of hops and alcohol. This is one of the best lagers I’ve ever had... nope it’s not a stout, or a trappist ale; it’s a lager, and can be appreciated on its’ own terms, unless you’re a smug fuckhead.

A classic. I like this beer a lot. It got me into Sam Adams and has a great taste.
