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.

On tap. Boring. Crisp taste, some malts, faint taste of hops. Better than the big macrobrews but not by much. Makes me glad I live on the west coast and there’s usually something better on tap.

Pours a little darker than your average American lager. A little bit more taste as well. Pretty bland, but drinkable, smooth, unoffensive. Not awful, just not a lot there to take in.

Maybe this deserves a better rating? It is a very tasty lager actually, probably my favorite one. Pours an amber color with lacing along the top of the glass, not much aroma to it. Usually drink it out of the bottle. This is a favorite beer at friend’s places or just a night in. The taste is bland but not bad at all, a bit bitter with a kick.

Not as good as I had hoped, after seeing it’s style rating. Very little aroma. Clear amber appearance. and an abrasive grassy-metallic flavor.

Le liquide a une couleur ambrée pâle. Petite construction mousseuse sans grande ténacité. Le nez est faible sur des grains maltés grillés avec quelques traces fantomatiques de houblons herbeux. Le goût est tout aussi similaire avec du malt sucré et des herbes mouillées. En bouche, le liquide est de faible corpulence et sa texture est, à la limite, crémeuse. La finale se fait principalement sur des notes douces. Aucune présence notable d’amertume derrière la langue. (Souvenirs de vacances from L.C.)

May be the oldest independent brewery, but it’s definitely not the best. I think this beer is the median between good & bad beer. A lot of people choose it over Bud LIght, but they aren’t ready for a true craft beer, and this suits them just fine.

Out here in Pennsavania we call it Lager. Light dirty aroma and color but in a good way somehow. Mouthfeel is light but not crisp. Taste is slightly sweet. Very non confrontational. A beer that can be drank by all and enjoyed by many, just not me. My go to when only other options are macros. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

24 oz can. This is the second time I’ve had this, and the first time in almost a year. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head that lingers long enough to interfere with the pouring before it disapears to nothing. Aroma is almost nonexistent, but faint burnt malts. Taste is watery and burnt malts with no hop bitterness whatsoever. Watery and bland, but still head and shoulders above other domestic lagers like Bud and its ilk. Good if there is nothing else, but ultimately bland and forgettable.
