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.

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 (2684) - 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.

Looks like apple juice in the glass. Skunk aroma to start. More malt than hops. Finish is a little rough.

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 (1907) - 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 (9425) - 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.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Light clear orange, small white head. Light stale hops aroma, has some beer taste, but not much. Way ahead of a typical budmillercoors product.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Traditional = boring. Nice color. Aroma was 'eh', bordering on maybe kinda sorta starting to turn a little skunky. The flavor was..._empty_. that's the only way i can describe it. Not horrible, but then again there's nothing distinguishing about it whatsoever.

this beer has a special place in my heart. it was the first "real" beer i had after drinking bud light for many years. i thought it was the shit then now i find it rather bland and unimpressive. there is no taste of hops and it's watery. but it's inoffensive and at the bar where coors is the other choice, i'm going for this.
