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.

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

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.

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

On Tap. Pours a light brown with a small white head that dissipates rapidly. Aromas of caramel malt, faint hops, and apple cider. Taste is like caramel apple cider- not sure how to better describe it. Somewhat buttery mouthfeel. Hops are in wanting. Good clean and sweet finish. My pick out of the macro American lagers.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Tap. Nice sweet malt and hops aroma. Dark yellow color with good head. Smooth slightly sweet malt flavor - slight hops. A very enjoyable beer.

Deep golden colour, with a thick white head. Malty aroma, caramel, some noble hop aroma as well. Flavour is well balanced, caramel sweetness nicely balanced by floral hoppiness. A nice surprise.

Draught at Bar Louie, Palm Harbor/Clearwater, on January 21, 2014.
Clear copper color, white head. Sweet, malty taste. Malty aftertaste. To the high side CO2 fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, malty scent.

Tried a few more times while in Ft Lauderdale, FL. From bottle on Jan 20 and from a few cans on Jan 21, 2015.
Clear golden colot, white head. Sweet, malty, uncomplex, but not bad scent and taste. Fizzy high CO2 mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Decent, fairly nice, well drinkable lager for sure.

12oz can. Clear orange color. Thin, mostly white head, fading to minimal, then barely nothing, eventually. Decent lace enough lace to start out, though. Bubbles on side of glass. Moderate, more smooth + crisp, but stronger carbonation, but kinda acidic texture. Aroma is faint, a little watered down, but what’s there isn’t that great. Some caramel malt, light spice, little lagery funk, not much else. Not really much taste, either. Sour zest, some savory, not really sure, it’s faint. Good, for a cheap american macro-lager to get in lieu of Bud Light or whatever. I think this is slightly worse than Yuengling Light, but I’ll still probably continue to choose this version just because it’s a cheaper for the ABV. This is all about the cheap buzz, right?

710 ml can. From Gerry, NY.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sugary fruity and sweet malty aroma. Aromas of Baltic Strong Lager and Danish Vienna combined. Not that tempting. Mild hops, sweet malt and Play-Doh in flavour. Disappointment.

Pours golden with white head on tap, aroma is some grass, hay, and earth. Taste is light grass, bread, slightly bitter finish. Very average lager, but better than a lot of them.
