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.

Basic American lager. It has a light to medium body and is somewhat refreshing but with largely cereal characteristics. I know a bit more about beer these days, but when I was still a "lager-lover" this was my go-to brew.

This isn’t a bad beer, but by no means great. This is perfect when funds are low...a good lawnmower beer. Better than all those other mass produced beers. Way better in the can than the bottle.

On tap at Ledo. Thanks Justin! Pours a clear light yellow, with quickly fading head that left moderate lacing. Aroma is overall mild, and is mainly lager sweetness with slight toasted malt notes. Flavor is simple lager, with a corn sweetness. Thin body, sweet finish. Amazing to think that I bought this by the case when I lived in Philadelphia.

Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Cereal grains and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Decent, but average.

Transfer from BA review on 3-12-12 - Served in pint glass Appearance – Served a golden amber color with a medium white head. The head faded fast and gave way to little to no lacing. Smell – The aroma is very faint. There is a slight roast malt and a little bit of corn and caramel aroma. Taste- The taste is a mix of corn and a little roasted malt that persist the entire time. Up front a small amount of bitterness is detected, mainly roasted malt flavor in nature, but an ever so lighter bitter hop flavor is there as well. Toward the end, there is a light caramel flavor that works it way in, which with the malt and corn, finish the taste. Mouthfeel – Medium to light bodied with an average level of carbonation. Nothing special. Overall – It is very good for its price, but overall nothing really too spectacular. A good cheaper session or tailgating brew.

The color is a clear dark orange with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly, and the aroma blends caramel and bread malts with dough yeast. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a fairly abrupt finish.
