Bottle. Corn syrup and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Sweet corn/barley malt and mildly bitter herbal hay hops flavor. No surprises here.

Smooth drink. Easy on palate. Good for relaxing and watching TV. Decent lager character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig. A total farce, brewed by Band of Brewers Co! Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A light sweet caramel nose. Smooth easy malt driven flavors, caramel, light fruity hops. Smooth and easy. OK.

Bottle. Light sweet barley malt aroma. Clear copper with a large off-white head. Light sweet barley malt flavor with a very slight grassy bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation.

Slubgob (184) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Drank straight from bottle. Overall impression is that if I were back in college this would’ve been a premium kegger pour. Nose is cheap beer, a bit metallic. Flavor is fair but unremarkable lager. Minimal hops, and a cheap beer cereal support of aftertaste (makes me want patio chips for some reason). Wouldn’t turn it down but wouldn’t buy it again.

Aroma is caramel and nutty malts. The flavor is caramel malts, mildly gritty and a lightly tart finish.

Bottle. Pretty standard-looking "amber" beer. The head fizzles quickly. The aroma is weak and corny. The beer drinks slightly better than the aroma suggests, but in the end drinks like any dozens of macro lagers. (#4943, 2/17/2013)

"Gold Medal Award Winner". Really? Twist top 12 oz bottle poured into straight pint glass. Light amber hue, not straw, a bit deeper that most of the conventional "national" brews. Small white head quickly disappears into the fizzy amber liquid. Minor lacing. Slight metallic scent. Cereal perhaps (might be some malt & hops hidden in there, too). Mild malty sweetness up front with some hop bitterness vaguely present on the finish. Tastes pretty decent. Nothing really stands out. I purchased this over the STANDARD "insert mass beer producers name here" beer, suspecting some trickery. Very drinkable and worth the 6 pack purchase.

Decent lager. Not great but very drinkable and refreshing. Wouldn’t go out of my way to find it but glad I tried it.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Poured a brilliant amber-copper hue, producing a 1/4 inch cream-colored head that dissipated quickly. Some malt in the nose - not much hops. Grassy notes? Medium body. Light to moderate carbonation. Sweet malty palate. Short. Fresh. Crisp. Easy to drink. Not a cerebral beer. Lacing does form. It is an OK beer, but not good value considering the quality that exists at this price point.
