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.

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.

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.

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.
