Florida outdoor drink of choice -- clear brown with more aroma than typical light American lagers. Same goes with flavor, more malt presence but still light and easily drinking to be refreshing. Little to no hop presence as well to keep this a sessionable beer.

Served at almost all local restaurants and bars. I tried it once at Outback to change things up a bit. I was pleasantly surprised. It has a medium amber to light caramel color and is somewhat carbonated like most American beers. It went well with the meal and didn’t have any harsh or bad aftertaste. I prefer this to most other mainstream American beers like Bud, Miller, Coors, etc.

Poured from can into my trusty dbtd (downhill beer transport device), aka
mug with a handle.
Echoing others, has a color that is more amber/copper than the typical yellow lager. Tasty malt flavor with minimal hop flower to get in the way.
As a fan of lagers this has a permanent place in my refrigerator in between cans of bud and bottles of german import.

Never had a Bud, but assume this is a standard, mass produced American beer. I thought it was disgusting and had bad egg-like smell and taste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a light beige head. Sweet dusty malt notes, white bread, and a light mineral scent on the nose. As for taste, more body on the palate than I was expecting, but sweet with caramel, domestic beer notes galore, into a taste that makes me think of the smell of pencils, VERY light bitterness, and some orange pekoe in the finish. Not awful, but too sweet for a return visit, and tastes far too much like a domestic lager to get excited about.

This beer is a lager. It’s not meant to be special. It’s meant to be your every day beer. For that purpose it is one of the best in the world, in my opinion. Many people expect something exotic now that it has reached the vast reached of the USA. Others feel it has the watered down effect of mass production. Those are the same people who think every microbrew is a good beer. Actually, most american microbrews are mediocre at best but continue to receive inflated opinions by naive drinkers who dont know better. This beer, however, is an American legend for serving as the best plain ’old lager in the country.
