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.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 No lager character to speak of, very mild hops and malt, metallic, slight cooked corn (DMS) taste. I couldn’t finish it. I have retasted this several times on tap and actually like the stuff.

This is a great winter beer. Good price, full body, nice color. Not exactly something I would drink after mowing the lawn, but for Thanksgiving and Christmas reunions, this really makes them bearable.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 This beer has an interesting nutty flavor which makes it quite unique for a lager. Not spectacular, but decent and better than most lagers. I've been drinking this one for years because it's from my original turf and it is definitely a distinctive lager.

I drink a lot of this stuff and it doesn't give me very loud beer farts. Glen disagrees. It's a good beer.

Very good for a macro-ish brewery (the oldest in America according to the literature). Nice light malty body. Unexpected hop character. Very ordinary, but better than most macro-styled lagers.

Well for a mass produced lager this was better than most. Decent malt, not as thin as I would imagine. Quite light and decent carbonation. Nothing to rave about, but not terrible.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Drank many of these vacationing in NC (Ocean Isle Beach), could not find anything that wasn't BMC. Good on a hot day and with food. Has a decent malty base with some mild hops at the finish.

BBB63 (6299) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
On tap in Pittsburgh: Amber hue with no head or lace, thin to medium-bodied. Malty caramel nose with a light citrus undertone. Smooth, light hoppy bite. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Quaffable and refreshing. Just a ordinary beer.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 A great tasting lager. Could be thicker bodied, but the taste is undeniably pelasant. Smooth and a bit nutty. Like it much better when I was 18.

Poured an amber color with small white bubbly head. A pretty good lager. Not really much flavor to it though.
