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.

RE-rate: had way too much of this at the beach. I’ve noticed that it gets too sweet after a couple. Fantastic. don’t know why i can never find it in Ohio. A summertime favorite.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 My favorite lager on tap! need i say more? yes. It has a wonderful crisp hoppy start, and leaves a pungent hoppy trail all through your mouth as it washes down and leaves traces of malt notes behind. Delicate yet strongly stated. wow.

Well I suppose I’m due for a rerate of this one. I’ve certainly had many many bottles of it since my first draught experience. It certainly is no 4.1 in bottles, being pasteurized and filtered and having a distinct, yeasty, green-apple and paper flavor/aroma, with some plastic.
I don’t know, I strongly hold that the fresh draughts I’ve had at PIttsburgh airport were easily 4.1’s, but until I can get back and verify that with myself (having been a LONG time ago relative to my palate development), I suppose I should average the draught score with the bottled score.

Draught 7/4/9/4/17
Bottled 6/3/6/3/12
Overall is an average of the two.

Salt and iron are not good things in a beer i.m.o….Are there some hops in this one, or just corn?

The blue collar lager. Amost every local, small-town bar in my area has this on tap which means I don’t have to drink bud or coors when I go out any more. I still like Brooklyn Lager better, but this is still really good.

After looking at the bottle, hearing its name, and finding out where it came from, i was apprehensive about its quality. Not much aroma (almost like eggs), decent yellow appearance, but it had this awesome spicey flavor which surprised me. Its finish was kind of bland and lacking, but that spice initially was very rewarding. Kinf od tangy yet sweet..hard to describe other than ’spicey’. For its price its worth it.

A solid value. Decent malty lager for little more than the budget brews. Surprisingly satisfying and rewarding. Also, economical and readily available which is a plus.
