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.

Bottle 355ml @ DoubleTree Hotel, Annapolis, MD
Pours clear copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, caramel and corn. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
A Sim Rate (on tap at Solas, NYC): Smells like soggy clothes when itís been raining. Tastes a bit like bud with a slightly aley tinge. Crap palate.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap, House of Brews, NYC. Copper with a thinning off white rim. Cherry drop aroma with toasted nut hints. Bready, toasted malt slicked with caramel; vague cream and toasted nut hints. Toffee popcorn afters with vegetal streaks. More like a cheap Eurodunkel than a lager IMO. Drinkable.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear honeyed amber with a light cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up honey, corn syrup, and a touch of vegetable oil, with light lemon zest around.. kind of a dank impression on the back of the nose. The flavor found more honey and some bready malts at the core.. lemon left a little tartness on the edges, and some residual sugars on the finish.. too sugary-sweet at the end. Lighter-bodied with an odd interplay between tartness and the sugars.. OK level of carbonation.. decent stuff.

crossovert (6928) - 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 isnít 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

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On Tap. Crystal clear light copper color with white head hanging around the edge of the glass. Light aroma mostly sweetness of some sort. Light and fairly crisp flavor of malty sweetness and some dryer grain malts. I canít detect any hops. Very light beer that ends a little un-balanced leaning toward sweetness.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 29, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a notes of musty bread with some grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor started with a slight citrus and grain note with some grass and hay coming out in the finish.

rosenbergh (6480) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2011
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.
