Looks much better than it tastes. Grassy aroma followed by a predictable, simple taste. Quite bitter, which I usually like, but it just didn’t quite hit the mark for me.

Bitter, clean...A stylish beer thats good for pounding. Nice golden glow, starts off skunky, then finishes clean. This beer is the official beer for Valentines Day!

pours a light clear yellow with a white head. No distinguishable aroma. Flavor is crisp, refreshing, and not at all unlike a mass produced "beer"

Poured a nice head. Good carbonation with a slight amount of hops throughout. It was very refreshing and a easy drinking brew. Very nice in the summer.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 This is an average beer at best, but it has a little bit of a citrus bit and some grainy malts. Why do people even bother with this style?

Little stronger than most draft lagers, smooth, goes down well but suffers, i assume from old inventory in some US bars where it tastes off.

Pours copper gold with a decent white head. Smells moderately of straw and grass. Taste is slightly bitter with some caramelly pepper undertones. Not bad for a session beer.

Pale golden lager with a bright white, averaged life head. Aroma dominated by light malts and some noble hops. Malty flavour, with some doughy characters and apparent late hopping with nobles. Medium bitterness with a nice clean finish. One of the better ’Premium’ Lagers but a bit overrated as i dont think it is very different to many of the others on the market, just has classier reputation here in Aus.

Beaconstreet tells me this is, in England, like Budweiser is in the US, just all over. This was kind of skunky smelling...this was like Rolling Rock but slightly better

Pours a light gold with lasting creamy white head. Not much flavor. Light and crispy beer. Hoppy. Slightly bitter finish. Good lacing. Not a complex beer, but still quite solid.
