It is hard to be objective when rating this, because in college, it was the # 1 beer in America, and I agreed. Then the recipe changed, and that was it. Now it tries to make a comeback, but Iíve moved so far beyond the modest expectations of the original, that I donít know how to treat it. It was instrumental in getting me started, so it deserves at least a 2.2.

CharmCityCrab (149) - Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Basic adjunct lager with a bit of extra malt and grain in the bill. Not a great beer, but a good buy. A little cheaper than your BMC and little more taste. Itís not going to blow anyone away, but based on itís reputation, youíd think it was undrinkable. Itís not undrinkable. Busch is undrinkable. Schlitz is fine if youíre on a budget or want a pale adjunct lager. Must have changed things up from the days when the brand got ruined back in the day.

Bottle. Revived formula. Taste is the old timey lager taste from years ago. Aroma is hay, straw and weak. Appearance is golden with a good head.
