1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Itís hard for me to judge this one, as the nuances between cheap beers are subtle, and I tried this one months after having sampled any other cheep beer. My impression put it several steps up from Natty and Keystone, but it was similar in price. It was drinkable. I would put it several steps down from any number of other mainstream pale lagers, however. Kinda on par with PBR. My intuition is that I would prefer PBR, by a (very) slight amount.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz can on my honeymoon trip in Dec. 2009 Puerto Rico (Culebra, Flamingo Beach). Can, looked cheap, reading on can said oldest lager in US. thought it was strange. Did not expected much from this beer. Just a new beer to add to my list. Funny this is made is Illinois and I had never seen it before. Taste is grassy, watery, with a hint of pale malts in it.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2011 40 oz bottle. My first few sips, and I didnít think it was nearly as bad as everyone else here says. At about the fifth sip I couldnít take it any more and poured it down the drain.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical American pale lager. Pale yellow in color with a minimal white foamy head. Corn like taste with little aroma. Itís a bland beer that neither tastes bad nor good. I tried this because of itís nostalgia factor. I(and old time Patriot fans) remember that the New England Patriots used to play in "Schaefer Stadium"(since replaced by Gillette Stadium) many years ago.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours yellow with a fizzy white head, which dissipates quickly. Malty aroma with corn and grain. Similar flavor, with sugary grain dominating. No bitterness to speak of, almost. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes short, crisp and clean with some lingering sweetness. Drink this fella quickly and youíre fine. Good stuff.
