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.

Pushes the borderline between macroswill and microbrewery. Mix a Bug Light with a high-quality brew, and I'd expect it to taste like this. Probably good to give as gifts to friends that haven't yet disocvered beer beyond BMC, but don't bother buying it for yourself.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 This pours a decent looking pale amber color. It has a small, fake-looking white head. The nose is weak, but pleasantly grassy. The tastes are very grassy, earthen, natural, and watery, but they are strangely also syrupy and lightly acidic. This fits most any low budget occasion, and it HAS, believe me, - keg after keg - to varying degrees of satisfaction.

Draught, at Swifts, East 4th St, New York. </br> Amber with a fine, shiny, white head. Corn syrup aroma and bitter hop flavour. Ok enough.

a good, cheap mini-macro lager! lots of CARAMEL with this beer. I saw caramel, smelled caramel and tasted caramel. it's a taste up from the macro beers.

On tap at the airport in Philly. Deep golden color. Mild aroma. Thin bodied. Mild flavor. Not a lot going on in here. Not awful

pkbites (867) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Had this last week for the first time. Deep golden color. Wonderful nose, a really nice aroma. Pours a thick, rich, creamy head. A truely beautiful beer. Then you taste it! VERY DISAPPOINTING! Little flavor. Drinks like a light beer. Only slight hoppyness. Almost no after-taste. Watery. If this beer tasted as good as it looked it'd be the greatest American beer ever. It's not.

For what it's worth ($4.25/6-pack), this is a must buy beer on the cheap. I'd drink it in all its fizzy, sweet, chugable goodness any day over a Lite, Rock, or Silver Bullet. Perfect to keep your hand cool at the next family picnic.

I was quite surprised that this was a drinkable cheap beer ($16+/case). I was travelling through Pennsylvania and wanted to bring home a mixed case of their beers (another story - what a hassle buying beer in PA is!!) Good golden color, clean inoffensive taste. A better beer than the major megaswills.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2003
12 oz bottle, lager glass, 50 degrees F. Tall, frothy, white head diminishes slowly and sits on an amber-brown body that has lively carbonation. Losses an appearance point for the green bottle. Light bread and toasted grain malt (M); flowery and grassy hops (L); toffee aroma. Slight green bottle skunk. Lightly sweet throughout with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: avoid from the green bottle.

I personally like this beer very much as a cheaper, easy to drink beer. Very smooth, easy to drink, with sweetness of possiblyu pistachios and even some apples. Nothing to complicated, but good nonetheless.
