16oz, Sprecher bottle, twist-off. Bright yellow, slightly hazy. Bright white head. Aroma of old dirty socks. Smells of wheat malt, grassy hops. Tastes of straw & grassy hops. Sharp bitter grass flavor finish. (3597)

Is it heresy for a Milwaukeean to dislike Sprecher? Here is another example of a brew I think is terrible. Skunkiness is its defining attribute.

ttroha (237) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Tap at Pats Place. Transparent amber with white head. Aroma of corn and malts. Taste is pretty much the same with water downed aftertaste. Not great.

It's a nice refreshing offering for summer months (it's 76 degrees in NC in December. That's summer weather for me). Bit more hop flavor than I expected. Not a bad thing though. I like it, but there are many others from Sprecher I like a lot better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Much better than the fire light. Smooth almost creamy taste. Light and good summer beer. Had this on draft at the sprecher brewpub in lake Geneva, IL.

Aurelius (4053) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Clear gold, frogsí eggs bubbles in the thin white head. Great Sprecher potato masher pint bottle - too bad itís a twistoff. OK label. Diacetyl Bohemian pils aroma. Buttery, nutty sweet, modestly bittered, mineral flavors - this is an OK-drinking beer, but itís almost savory and would be a great base for a chicken dish - stew, pie, dumplings. Mouthy, with a bready finish and a little hop flourish at the very end. I always look forward to a new Sprecher.

csaso (1305) - Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle - good size foamy head, light gold clear gold color, crisp balanced aroma and flavor with mildly sweet malt and fruity mild spice - not bad, would be good for a nice hot summer day

PorterPounder (5358) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - pint bottle. Medium golden pour, slight cloudiness, nice bubble actions, snow white head. Aroma has some butterscotch accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor has a buttery back end with some vanilla notes, some butterscotch, some honey sweetness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Canít tell if the butterscotch is from diacetyl or it is intended - pleasant at first - turns cloying after a while.

backdaft (201) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a bright yellow/gold color with a nice finger of foam. Aroma is faintly sweet. Taste is sweet grains & grassy hops. Well carbonated, crisp, & slightly bitter. An easy drinkiní summer beer.
