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.

Aroma of weak malts. Has an okay copper body with a fast dying head. Flavour is fruity malts and nothing else. Watery on the mouth. an okay darker beer.

Yeast and sweetish malt aroma. Pours clear dark honey gold with a thick off white head that lasts a good while leaving a good amount of lacing. Very light. Thin mouthfeel. Papery finish. A little bit of an edge. I don’t see what all the fuss is about. It just tastes like any number of cheap beers.

firstsip (435) - Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Tap. Sort of a dark amber. Some okay head. A good breadiness with a slight banana yeast quality. Not the insane beer I’ve heard hyped by east coasters over the years, but definitely one I wouldn’t mind drinking if it was the only option besides Bud Light.

DocJitsu (951) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a clear amber-golden color with a quickly dissipating light tan, fizzy head. Toasty grain notes, some fruitiness, and toffee. Medium-bodied, somewhat creamy texture, with some moderate crispness. The aromas get expressed in the flavors, except that the fruitiness comes through more prominently.

A pale lager that kind of actually resembles a beer! Decent body, pour, & aroma. It actually isn’t watered down but certainly doesn’t carry a flavor explosion. It’s passable & that’s more than I can say about the majority of this style!

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 18, 2014
24oz ghetto can. Clear bronze color with ivory head. Caramel, toast, sulfur, oil refinery aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Weak sweet caramel, toast, malty flavors with a lightly drying bitter finish___it is what it is.....

Hair6a11 (1358) - Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle: pour is honey gold with a modest white head into this glass. It retains fairly well. The nose is light adjunct , moving to caramel, honey nuttiness, with a mild grassy note. The flavor profile is bittering grassy hops, with lively carbonation presence, with mineral water, adjunct, caramel malts, with a faded finish. It’s well...what I expected

bluemooner (608) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a deep golden with a medium, fizzy, white head. Aroma is corn and malt. Flavor is better with hints of grain, caramel, and light hops. Light body with medium carbonation. Not bad for the style.

Bork (168) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 America’s oldest and most overrated beer. Caramel colored water with some sweet corn and a little bit of acidity. Look elsewhere.
