2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Draught at Billy Goat Tavern, Chicago Sep2013. Bit of an Abv nose on a watery pale lage brewed down to virtual taste extinction. Glad I was offered a free sample first.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
16 oz can proclaims "classic í60s formula", implying that the quality was worse or less popular in recent decades. Pours a clear pale yellow with a quickly disappearing fizzy white head and a little lacing. Aroma is grains, corn, a bit of cardboard and the faintest of hops - it tries to be inoffensive. Taste is slightly sweet but hardly noticeable. Body is light with noticeable carbonation. This was the first beer I ever tried back in high school when the jazz band director wanted to get drunk with his students. Iím not sure if itís any better than my first revolting taste of it, but it still serves its purpose.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 On tap at the unnamed arcade bar in Fort Collins. Pale, golden and clear with a small white head. The aroma and flavor is sweet malts and corn. Light body with a thin soft feel and a sweet finish. Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
