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.

Pours a clean clear copper with a thin white head. Smells of fermented old wet bread sitting in a closed garbage can and a hint of urine. Drinks sweet with the same taste as the smell with light carbonation. Better than bud or coors thatís for sure.

Bottle. Pours amber in color with white head. Aroma of wheat, hops and malt. Has the typical smell of inexpensive, mass produced beer. The taste is watery, sweet and slightly bitter. Easy to go down with a bitter aftertaste. Itís a decent, cheap beer to bring to backyard cook-outs that will satisfy most beer drinkers.

mikesaum (615) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Tall boy pours amber with a off white head that doesnít hang around too long, actually leaves some lace. Aroma is a bit grainy, and unlike most pale lagers this has a bit off a spicy and grassy hop aroma, but its subtle. Taste is clean with mild grassy and spicy hop notes. Overall its about the most flavorful macro you can get around here.

Average in taste, color and aroma. No head. If you like a light lager this is for you. If you prefer craft beer, move on and leave this on the shelf.

12 oz. can. It pours a clear amber color with a fizzy off white head. Way darker than I thought it would be, almost more of an American dark lager or Vienna in appearance. The aroma has some corn, hints of raw dough and high boost. The flavor is flabby, doughy and has some old cardboard. No hops. This should be much drier for what it is, and honestly, I would probably take a few BMC lagers over this one. Not really offensive, just drab, pointless stuff.

I rated this a 1.2 on 4/7. This is a pretty common beer íround these parts. This is not a great beer but itís better than a 1.2 which I would put as Budweiser territory. This is just a below average beer. It has much more flavor than something like Bud or Rolling Rock but pales in comparison to something that is actually good.

eh, I thought it was pretty bland, and watery, very unimpressed, there has got to be better beers.

Has a nice malty aroma but that is where it ends for me. The taste is ruined by rice malt and some kind of nasty chemical taste. No hopw to mention. Better than the Black and tan though. Reminds me of that phony Killians taste.
