I believe this is a classic American amber beer. Lots of notes for something so widespread and popular.

Creamy good head. Nice orange colour. Ok fruity aroma, but averedge taste. Light bitter and moderate sweet. Watary palate and its too fizzy.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 The old standby. Sometimes a little on the heavy side, but most times just right. I think this is the best all-around beer I’ve tried - not always the perfect brew for the occasion, but always very good. Combined with its reasonable price and wide availability, its surely the "Budweiser" (in the ubiquitous sense) of QUALITY beers - the ONE beer I’d keep if I could only have one.

Bottle. Little to no head. Pours darker than I expected - copper. Aroma is flowery and slightly sweet. Taste is smooth with a heavy hops aftertaste. A little sour on the back end. This is a decent choice for a refreshing drink on a hot day.

Clear amber golden body with a medium size white head. Hops on the nose. Taste is lovely and bitter and smooth, slight raw hops, not big in body but very easy drinking.

This is the best beer that I have found that is available almost anywhere and has a twist off cap. Cascade hops experience for the masses. Pours a nice amber with minimal head. Maltiness balances extermely well with hops for a change of pace for something you can find in most places that are worth their salt.

Pours an amber color with a white head that is mostly diminishing. aroma is of pines and some malts. Flavor is a little bitter and a tad bit creamy. The beer leaves a nice aftertaste that is slightly bitter. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle, a clear amber with a thin head. A strong malty aroma - very nice. Malty again in the flavour with a bitterness in the aftertaste. A solid beer that is very drinkable (as evident from ther number I had during my trip to California).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden hue with a fine head. Hoppy nose with a faint spicy aroma. Malty palate, with hops dominating the flavor, although nicely balanced. Consistantly drinkable, bottle to bottle. In restaurants with a limited beer selection, I will look for this , as it is so widely available.
