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.

This is an old favorite of mine and one Iím surprised I havenít rated yet. In terms of taste, there is a mellow hoppy bite to it and the malty notes are there, though subdued. The finish is a bit watery.

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.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of corn, grass and a bitter finish.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2008
Can courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size somewhat-lasting off-white head. Mild aroma is sweet, almost overly so along with some grain and very light hops. Meh. Flavourís not very good initially. It got a little better several sips in but I still didnít much care for it. Toasted malt, grain, light grassy hops, somewhat watery and with a very light bitter finish. Average bodied. No sir, not something Iíd ever have again.

12-oz., trade w/BeachBum25. Pours medium amber with a thin, diminishing white head. Yeast on the nose, with a nice, clean, mild, neutral flavor profile all through the drink, from the attack to the finish. Session lager for a hot sunny day. Thanks for the bottle!

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 I had this while visiting TN on vacation with my fianceeís family and was apparently too busy to take good notes beyond the numbers. I was very excited to try this because Iím from the Midwest and people talk about it all the time. Overall it was fine, but disappointing with all the hype. Now that Iíve moved to FL, I can get this all the time. For being grouped with the "domestics" at restaurants and bars, itís always the best choice. Get it fresh on tap or out of the can and itís pretty darn good stuff - get it out of old green bottles and itíll be skunked.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
On tap in Pittsburgh: Amber hue with no head or lace, thin to medium-bodied. Malty caramel nose with a light citrus undertone. Smooth, light hoppy bite. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Quaffable and refreshing. Just a ordinary beer.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2008
Can (12oz). Courtesy of tupalev. Clear amber-gold with plenty of bubbles and a decent fizzy-foamy white head (3+). Simple aroma, grain, straw, light cookie sweet malt. The taste - decent; floral and grassy, nice bite of carbonation, crisp and no harsh lingering aftertaste, a tad sweet and mildly roasty - a decent lager (I have little patience for most of them).

had this on draft in NY...unremarkable but not bad in any way. iíd say itís your average session lager for those not wanting to branch out and try new styles."

on tap, amber color with no head which was probably intentional, malty nose with a caramel flavor, nice crisp mouthfeel with maybe a slightly watery finish
