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.

On tap. Tan with a thin head. Slight straw aroma, skunky taste. A step above other macros at its price, but certainly not to be confused with craft beer, whatever the brewers association says

Took a few sips to really develop taste. Quite light in taste, but nice enough. Lightly hopped, not bursting with flavour. Not strong on the nose either. Having said that, I would suggest this is a good session beer because itís light in alcohol and easy to drink.

HuskerTan (980) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 1, 2015
(Thanks, Josh "StFun") Bottle. A- Malty, cereal, hay, caramel, slightly skunky. A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Malty, cereal, grass, caramel, bready. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- I wanted this one not because of the high scores but because itís a stable of the East Coast and you canít get it even remotely close to Nebraska. Finally got the chance and was surprised with how not bad it actually was. It was actually alright. Not a lot of flavor but balanced.

Total crap. I was once told that I should try this cos the beer has history. It tastes like a poor macro lager. Even though it was in an ice cold glass, it still didnít mask how awful it tastes. Seriously. And itís available everywhere in Florida (as a high priced domestic!). No thanks!

For a lager, typical and traditional, I have to say this beer is quite good. Nice proper, but still rather small bitterness. The mouth feel is rather annoying tho, watery and too much carbonated.

Bottle. Pours amber, clear, small head. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malts, hint of nuts, fruits, hint of metalic. Taste: malts, caramel, hint of corn, hint of grass. Decent lager.

WillRunForBeer (1489) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pint at Union Oyster House. The British are here. Pours golden brown with a white head. Aroma is caramel, brown bread, floral, a bit of citrus. Flavor follows. Slightly in the malty side of balanced.

bennetporter (384) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours an amber from the tap. Aroma is a malty, caramel, some pine hops nestled in there as well. Flavor almost has some aniseed or something similar in there. Drinkable to be sure. Okay beer.
