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.

Almost perfect amber hue. Good pouring lager with a nice malty head. Smooth, crisp, clear, consise, yet not overly dominating. Perfect at a baseball game at a barbeque or at a tailgate. Very drinkable and excellent with either steak or fish. Good for the ladies who like a nice beer that’s not too heavy or dark.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2002
Bottled. Skunky, no head, clear, flavor impossible to discover, no finish; did I have a bad bottle? I mean, a lot of you top raters liked this sludge and I tend to trust you; but this was worse than Bud if you ask me. I’m getting suspicious of cult mainstream lagers/light ales, I’ll tell you!

hopscotch (9844) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2002
UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland american standards. Appearance = Coors Extra Gold. Aroma = Coors Light Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors. Palate = Miller Light This is "America's Oldest Brewery"? I guess this is a testament to the average American's affection toward flavorless beer brewed with lots and lots of adjuncts.

PorterPounder (5831) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2003 1st rating was from having had this in a bar. A lot of people get all worked up over this for some reason. Decent amber appearance, solid white head, faint malty aroma. A step above the BMC lagers with a bit more of a hoppy bite to it and good for quenching thirst at tailgates etc. - Original Rating 3.7 Very impressed for an American lager - worth buying a six pack. Clean, crisp with no pretenses.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2003 This is a very good lager, uh...yeh has a deep amber color...and umm nice hop character,,yeah thats it.
