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 (12101) - Escondido, 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.

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.

Dogbrick (11509) - 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.

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.

crossovert (11348) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
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 Reviewed on: 09-19-2010 03:57:09

Sammy (11177) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
Surprisingly quaffable, for a macro lager, especially at the end of a hot day, with few beer choices at an official function. Assertive carbonation,
