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.

When had on draft itís really not too bad, but most likely because Iím not in beer-geek mode and rather just enjoying drinking beer with whatever food is being had. Anyways, this beer does seem to have some decent hop character when I tried it, and overall it tasted fresh. Not complex, not really that interesting, but far from being terrible tasting. Light and oily, fizzy texture. Lightly sweet flavors of maple and grassy hops. Decent but you basically know itís not going to be too impressive.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear, copper-colored body topped with a medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is light pale malt with notes of grain and bread. The flavor is light pale maltiness with a slight amount of caramel sweetness, light breadiness with a light hop character that creates a small amount of bitterness. The finishes is crisp and clean. Light-bodied. It served a purpose while in Hilton Head.

[1267-20080408] 12floz can. Grainy haystacks and dirty barn floor aroma with mild green leaves and fermented Concord grapes. Clear, bright amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fermented grapes in the flavour, mostly grainy alcohol and floral hay and straw bundles and peat notes. Medium body is grainy but not harsh. "It’s better than a kick in the teeth."

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.

douglas88 (8317) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Smooth and crisp taste with some malty undertones. A really good beer to drink in a bar, or really anywhere. A decent head, but not much of a aftertaste or aroma. Good beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8066) - 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.

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks decent; copper with head that quickly turns into lacing. Smells like macro tap beer. Much like __________________ (fill in the blank with any pilsner advertised on tv). Tastes decent; upper end of macrobrews. Mouthfeel is meh. Overall, a decent beer for what it is.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not quite caramel, but close. Medium/thin body. Flavor is the same sweet malt from the aroma with the faintest hint of hops. This is way better that most pale lagers, I actually enjoy drinking it... and itís pretty common to find on tap at many bars here in the northeast.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, 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.

Had in bottle through a small sample and on tap at my Disney resort in Sept í09 .. . pours a light brown, with a great head, lacing is decent .. some faint caramel and dirty sock .. . i can see the popularity when compered to the BMCís but just a regular brew in the end.. . give a cat a can of food and its hyper, then counteract that with a its own bed, i donít get it ..
