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. 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.

HogTownHarry (6108) - 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).

blankboy (6052) - 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.

BBB63 (6045) - 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.

drowland (6038) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
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.

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.

blutt59 (6019) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2008
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

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 ..
