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.)

24 oz. can from Food Lion Carrboro. Ar: Mild aroma. Touch of maltiness. Almost no character, but not offensive. Ap: Light amber translucent pour with head that dissipated so quickly that I couldn’t tell what color it was. Actually does leave some spotty lace. T: Moderately sweet but not as sweet as many other macro swills. A little bit of roastiness actually. Almost no hop character. If I try to imagine really hard I can pick up some bitterness. P: Thin, but thicker than a lot of macro swill. Carbonation is a bit softer than other macro swill as well. O: I kind of wanted to bash this beer, but it’s a pretty good version of macro swill. So far one of my favorite pale lagers, although that isn’t saying much.

Bottle at Wegmans. Clear red-amber with a beige head. Aroma light malty (caramel). Flavor light sweet and acidic. Light body. Reminds me of other Chinese/Asian beers.

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.

Itt poured a clear golden color. The aroma was light, crisp, hoppy taste with a nice flavor. The taste was decent witrh good everyday aroma.
