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.

Ungstrup (29662) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
A $6.99 bottle in Newark trying to kill some time before my flight to Dulles and RBSG. A brown beer - looks more like a brown ale, than a lager, with a thin disappearing beige head. The aroma is sweet with a weird fruityness to it, probably stemming from a hop sort I don’t recognize, combined with light notes of yeast and acidity. The flavor is sweet with light notes of fruit and nuts. It reminds me a lot of a Brown ale. Easily drinkable, though a bit too easy for me. I had it several times visiting Philadelphia before my time on RateBeer and remember it much better than what I think of it now...

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) The colur of this beer is fantastic: clear, dark amber - pretty thin head though. Very high carbonation. Unfortunately the flavours in no way live up to the appearance. A small hint of caramalt, and that’s it. Absolutely no hops.

MiP (13724) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2010
Draught. Clear amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is a bit watery, low to medium bitterness. Slightly maltier than a pale lager, but not much more flavourful.

Travlr (12950) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Too watery for my tastes. Starts off like a decent enough lager, but then collapses in shame.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
Bright but dull bronze. Aroma of creamed corn, acetaldehyde, a bit of garbage and some graininess. Very thin. The grainy body is kind of fizzy, kind of caramelly. This does not float my boat.
