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.

BeerandBlues2 (11471) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and no lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, toast, biscuit), light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is cereal and biscuit malt with faint hops and light bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a lightly sweet finish.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a copper color, clear, with a medium head. Low head retention and lacing. Aroma is very grain with some caramel and burned hair notes. Taste is grainy and nutty. Slight grassiness in the finish. Medium bodied.

daknole (10738) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
For an Amercian lager this one is at least drinkable. Not great, but drinkable. A richer color than most and a better malt flavor without the skuniness found in many of USA’s worst lagers.

kevnic2008 (10530) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2013
Thanks for this bottle to teddybeer. Pours amber with a white head. Grainy taste and aroma. I enjoyed this one with some crisps and it worked well.

hopdog (10491) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Poured a clear medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and malts. Lightly sweet a well. Thinner body. Nothing to go out of your way for.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2002
UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland american standards. Appearance = Coors Extra Gold. Aroma = Coors Light Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors. Palate = Miller Light This is "America's Oldest Brewery"? I guess this is a testament to the average American's affection toward flavorless beer brewed with lots and lots of adjuncts.

Dogbrick (10411) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2003
This beer is apparently really big in PA/NJ but you don't really see it in my neck of the woods. Clear dark amber with a thin beige ehad that disappears quickly. Very thin lacing. Light hoppy aroma. Light-bodied and crisp with a mildly bitter hops flavor. The finish tells me that this is not a beer you should let sit for a long time before drinking. Overall I'd say "drinkable" about sums this beer up.

Surprisingly quaffable, for a macro lager, especially at the end of a hot day, with few beer choices at an official function. Assertive carbonation,
