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.

Nicely done for a standard lager. Great caramel colour and enough flavour to be interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ahh. This beer is close to perfect. Love lagers and this one is tops. Bottles cans or on tap, can’t be beat.

Taste is malty and crisp with a slight hop finish. My "go to" everyday drinking beer. I use to drive to Alabama from the southside of Atlanta to buy this stuff before it was available in Georgia.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated till now. Been drinking this for decades off and on. Had it on tap and from bottles and cans. Not any perceptible difference. Pours a clear pale orange/amber with a minimal white head that barely sticks around. Has a corn and caramel aroma. Texture is watery and taste is sweet caramel malt, corn, a slight bit of hops and a little butteriness. Not an exceptional beer, but a solid regional that has a lot of appeal.

Clear copper pour with a nice off white head. Aroma is grainy with some caramel. Taste has a lot of malt sweetness with some plastic and cereal. Medium body. Not terrible.

Gerbeer (1489) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with medium foamy head. Aromas of biscuits, grass and a little skunk. Flavours are similar with hints of copper. Tasty for a lager.

Draft. Pours brown orange with light white head that dissipates. Mild carbonation. Nice malt flavor with mild hoppness. One of my favorites. Good at lots not great at anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Smells grainy, pours dark amber with a medium white head that dissipates after 30-60 seconds. Taste follows the smell and this beer is very drinkable with the slightest bitter aftertaste. I find this beer to be above average, but not much. Still, I have had far worse from bottles that promised much more.

I really like amber lagers. This beer is quite good despite its taste which is roasted-like tends to fade at the end of each swallow. But, it has a good amber color, low fuzz though. Its aroma is caramel-like, a bit roasted too.
