Clearish goldn pour, small bright white head. Sour rubbery lager yeast aroma, hint of citrus rind and cream. Average carbonation, thinner but bubbly mouthfeel, dry finish. Taste is grainy and every so slightly sweet, no detectable bitter. Easy tasting decent american lager.

Had a taste of this at the bar last night - someone was joking about craft beer connoisseur-ship. As I said then, papery taste of garbage with some piss. Yum.

Ever since they brought back the original recipe from the 1960ís I will drink it on occassion. Decent tasting beer. Not the best Iíve had but not the worst. Worth drinking.

I recall buying this since it was so cheap and Iím pretty sure I drank an entire 12pack once and just peed all night and felt bloated.

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.
