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 that’s for sure.

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 green bottle. Clear amber, soapy tan head that dissipates pretty quickly, leaving very little lace.
Caramel malt and cereal grains dominate the aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel, with the slightest hint of hops. Not offensive, but not very memorable either.

I rated this a 1.2 on 4/7. This is a pretty common beer ’round these parts. This is not a great beer but it’s 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.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2002
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.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Better than Bud and Miller products, but worse than most other options. I had it on Draught because Bud and Miller were my only other "cheap" options. Good beer for certain situations.

Mostly thin malts in the nose, darker than most American Standards. Thin bodied with a sweet rush of corn and a puny hint of grassy, murky hops. Also had a skunked version in my Brewing Science class at Purdue just to show people why NOT to buy beer in clear and green bottles!
