DSG (5658) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Clear golden. Aroma has citric hops, kinda stale, and light oxidation notes. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt and a mild hop bitterness, a bit stale. Medium-bodied.

Holy shit is this garbage juice. Literally. Sweet corn flavored water that came out of a dumpster behind the golden coral.

mcox90 (1529) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a 1 finger white head. Minor lace. Weak aroma of biscuity malt & foral hops. Flavor is semi sweet with more biscuit followed by some mild pine resin. Thin palate. Not a lot going on here. If this is the beer that started the craft beer movement, than it’s a wonder it got off the ground. Boston Lager is way better.

dnstone (2134) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 19, 2013
Clear-golden color with soft white head. Sweet bready aroma with some light orange/orange-peel aroma. Light bodied, lightly sweet-bread with some of that orange/orange-peel character. A nice idea and Im glad they did this project...not a bad beer, but such a defined SA malt character shows through that it makes me believe that this is far from the original taste.

ryanscourt (710) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
Orange. Sweet smelling hops. Not much bitterness in body. Mostly sweet flavors that don’t last too long. Fairly enjoyable but fairly short, lacking a long lasting palate. Overall I liked it, though its a little bit of an unfulfilling experience.

This brew was almost indistinguishable from PBR. If this is how they brewed it in the ’Old Days’ then I’m glad we live in the modern era.
