Horrible after taste and feel. The beat way to describe the feel is greasy, similar to Utica Club, Gennesee Cream Ale Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Pours golden amber with a fluffy head. Aroma is richly bready, grainy. Taste starts bready, nice, then a bite that feels more like the alcohol than like hops.

zandercorp (37) - crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Pours a light amber. Isnít anything truly special. The palate is somewhat bland. Itís a cheaper staple beer suitable for cookouts, etc.

I forgot I never rated this. Some light Malts but otherwise mediocrity incarnate. Really.

sudomorph (929) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
12oz can. Pours a clear caramel with a thin head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma has hints of sweet grain, and faint glances of traditional hops. Taste is balanced and mild. Grains, traditional spicy/earthy hops, and a short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall very standard and non offensive. Not that good but drinkable by all.

atlrizzob (199) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2015
It pours like Yuengling and smells like it too. Itís not "craft". But itís the oldest brewery in America goddammit. Drink it and like it!

Sjohnh (486) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
On cask at a well known Florida theme park. Surprisingly good. Itís copper coloured with a decent head. Light body with good carbonation. Malts supply caramel and toffee while the hops give a touch of apricot.

StueyD (1467) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
A mid Amber coloured beer with a weak white head. The aroma is light, floral and fruity. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is quite fruity and floral, the fruitiness giving a touch of bitterness that the floral hop balances out, with the help of a background maltiness. A short finish. Draught @ Arthurís, Hoboken, New Jersey.
