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.

Golden amber color. Smells of wet mash and malt. Smooth light hops malts wash it out. Smooth.

joejames (109) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours light amber. One finger head quickly disappears with no lacing. Highly carbonated. Tastes slightly sweet, just a hint of hops. Light body. Finishes like cardboard. Slightly better that most TV beers.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Cardboard finish. Refreshing with slight body. Bitter nasty finish. Starts way better then it finishes.

rjplumer (384) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Mild malty aroma. Clear caramel color on a one finger head. Some bitterness with a touch sweetness. Bubbly feel. Nice clean finish. Not too complex and a good everyday beer. One of the better examples of this style I’ve had.

BiffNilsson (185) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Ljusbrun med liten vit krona. Maltig söt doft. Ganska kraftig smak med mycket maltkaraktär. Förmodligen den bästa mainstream lagern från USA.

Probably one of the best "mass-produced" beers available. Always has a good poor, with a nice dark appearance to it.

Poured a 12oz can into a Samuel Adams Glass. Appearance: Awesome copper/orange hue. It is clear with carbonation visible. Pours a nice 2 finger white, soapy head that disappears rather quickly The beer leaves minor lacing. Smell: Some slight caramel, Slight sweet malt nothing strong. Something that I describe as a Yuengling smell I guess its some kind of adjunct. . Taste: This is how a lager should taste like. very clean, refreshing with some sweet malt, caramel and toffee. Could use a bit more hops to take it to the next level. Very good flavors from a brewer that’s been doing this since 1829! Drinkability: Beer is very easy drinking its only 4.4% ABV so that is understandable but when you think of the flavor its seems it should have around 5.5%. Its drinks like a light beer with full beer flavor. For sure a sessionable beer. when you think of the price I don’t know it doesn’t outperform the BMC beers. A great option from America’s oldest brewery,

pours a clear reddish brown. Aroma is of light caramel and very earthy. Flavor is sweet with a very clean finish. The flavor is light and lacks much complexity but it works with the style.

Very nice initial barley aroma. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Very good for style. Finishes slightly crisp. Nice barley profile. Tap at Blackfinn, stole a couple sips from a buddy’s glass.
