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.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a glass stein. Pours a clear amber with a white head the fades. Aroma is sweet and malty. Not very flavorful; some maltiness and alcohol tones. Average carbonation with a very clean mouthfeel. Typical American light lager but better than the Big 3 (Bud, Miller, Coors).

samzim (226) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
Slight aroma of bread and honey. Pours clear yellow colour with minimal head. Slight bitterness without much flavour other than that of a typical big-brand style lager. Medium body with very subtle creamy texture. No sensation lasts long on the tongue. Overall, ok for a beer that requires no attention except for the energy needed to lift the bottle to one’s mouth

Bottle. Pours dark amber. Aroma of malts. Tastes smooth. Definitely no complexity but would always choose this before a Bud or Coors.

In pils glass, draft. Almost no head and no lace, light amber. A slight wheat aroma. Taste is also of wheat. Hard to pick up hops, finish is weak as is overall taste. Of the American mass produced beers this may be one of the better ones, not saying much, and going to a party I always hope to at least get this.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Remember drinking this in my youth when I grew up in NY. Of course during a Florida trip it’s on tap everywhere. Sort of whale for the west coast I guess. Not a great beer but a ton of east coast transplants certainly reminiscent over it. Had it poured at a couple of beach bars while visiting the Space Coast. Poured reddish amber. Some skunky tones along with grains. Hardly any bitterness. Although as it warmed I certainly picked up some buttered caramel diacetyl notes. Could this be mistreatment of the lines? Well, it is what it is.

Duft av malt . Lys mørk farge. Noe skum som forsvinner raskt. Frisk smak, noe søtlig men ikke mye.

Yeast and sweetish malt aroma. Pours clear dark honey gold with a thick off white head that lasts a good while leaving a good amount of lacing. Very light. Thin mouthfeel. Papery finish. A little bit of an edge. I don’t see what all the fuss is about. It just tastes like any number of cheap beers.
