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.

Frothmeister (633) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

had this on draft in NY...unremarkable but not bad in any way. i’d say it’s your average session lager for those not wanting to branch out and try new styles."

Surprisingly good for a regular logger of its elk has little bit of taste to it but still overall suffers from the mass production

joeneugs (4305) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz. can. It pours a clear amber color with a fizzy off white head. Way darker than I thought it would be, almost more of an American dark lager or Vienna in appearance. The aroma has some corn, hints of raw dough and high boost. The flavor is flabby, doughy and has some old cardboard. No hops. This should be much drier for what it is, and honestly, I would probably take a few BMC lagers over this one. Not really offensive, just drab, pointless stuff.

GenDV138 (3537) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a hard plastic cup at my sister’s wedding. Clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of skunk, grains. Tastes of light skunk, grains, subtle citrus. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-high carbonation. Not something I’d drink normally but if I were somewhere with only this and BMC products, I’d choose Yuengling.
