COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An iconic American lager famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor - with a roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character.

The single best for the money deal in all of beer. It isnt the best beer, it isnt the most pined for, its taste isnt the best, nor its color, but overall all of those descriptions are better than average and to the tune of 14 bucks a case.

Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Amber color with a medium white head. Some malts and very slight hop flavor are noticable. Very boring, but for being a mass made American lager, it is better than most.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2003
A nice regional lager that has a bit more flavor than your typical mainstream lager. Darker copper color is inviting in a sea of pale yellow lagers. A slight malt note, and a bit more bitterness. Very drinkable for when nothing else is available, or when you have macro-swill friends coming over.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2003
A nice lager. A big step above BMC but nothing outstanding. Its in the same category as a Sam Adams Boston Lager although not as good. Good malt profile with a slight hop presence. But they need to get this stuff out of a green bottle, it can cause a variation from one bottle to the next. A good way to get people away from thier Budweiser if nothing else. Decent stuff.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2003
Has a amber color with some carbonation and a metalic smell. Taste is smooth, lightly malted and finishes with a light hop bitterness. Overall not a bad beer, nothing special, but I got this can for free.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Looks like apple juice in the glass. Skunk aroma to start. More malt than hops. Finish is a little rough.

psark (54) - Binghamton, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Malt balanced in the tradition of a helles more than a pilsner. No flaws yet not inspiring. Offered widely in it's market area, it is priced the same as Bud but is superior.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Mostly thin malts in the nose, darker than most American Standards. Thin bodied with a sweet rush of corn and a puny hint of grassy, murky hops. Also had a skunked version in my Brewing Science class at Purdue just to show people why NOT to buy beer in clear and green bottles!

Dogbrick (9118) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2003
This beer is apparently really big in PA/NJ but you don't really see it in my neck of the woods. Clear dark amber with a thin beige ehad that disappears quickly. Very thin lacing. Light hoppy aroma. Light-bodied and crisp with a mildly bitter hops flavor. The finish tells me that this is not a beer you should let sit for a long time before drinking. Overall I'd say "drinkable" about sums this beer up.
