2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, sent from Buffalo, NY. Been ISO this wale for quite a while. Isn’t a shelfie out here but I guess it is upstate New York. Clear, slightly burnt orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Some caramel / toasted malty notes in the aroma along with a bit of spiciness from the hops. Hmmm, more toast in the flavor along with some doughy / crackery notes. Almost reminds me of a Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Not half fucken bad.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12 oz can.
It pours an amber/gold with a fizzy white head that immediately dissipates and leaves no lacing.
The smell is reminiscent of an adjunct lager. Grain, cooked veggies, mineral water.
The taste is even more adjuncty, in fact i dk how this isn’t an Adjunct lager, it is corny, with a certain saltiness to it. There is a thick mineral water flavor and then some malt flavor at the end.
The mouthfeel is watery.
At any rate, this is a crappy adjunct lager, nothing more.
Serving type: can
