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.

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.

Pours neat white head, nice dark gold colour of beer. Light grassy hop aroma, fair, slightly on sweeter side. Clean but a bit light, simple but no major flaws ..

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.

Ernest (6538) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Undrinkable macro clone. Oh, and for what it's worth...purchased cold and seemingly fresh in a bomber-size brown bottle.

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 ..

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!

blankboy (6412) - 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 (6358) - 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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 23, 2005
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.
