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.

A mild hop character with strong corn and chemical characteristics as well. Light red color leads you to believe it will be better than most; and it is, by a hair.

Bottle and tap.Iím a PA boy and this is really a high school beer, clean and simple. Itís usually the first beer any central PA kid has after a bud! An improvement, but nothing to brag about. Maybe i just drank too much of it.

Yuck, awful skunky smell thanks to the green bottle. Taste matches, super skunk that just drowns out any semblance of actual beer taste. This beer has the same problem as Heineken, it’s been fouled by light thanks to the green bottle.

Bottle. Pours a clear, medium amber, very thin head that dies quickly. Aroma is slightly skunky, a touch of sweet malt. Flavor is again slightly skunky, malt, not much else. Why brewers still use green bottles is beyond my comprehension, I know, I know, the green bottle scores higher in marketing,......but it ruins the beer !!!!

Draft. Pours clear, light gold with a a thin, quickly dissapating head. Aroma of wheat, malt, and hops. Light body with a light finish. Not nearly as good as I remember from my high school days.

Nothing special here. This lager had been hyped up quite a bit, but once I tried it, I was reminded that this is just another pale lager.

I had to rate this beer. Awesome beer for people who are just starting off with beer. This was the Macrobrew that begin to convert my taste buds. This is also my go-to budget beer. I wish it still taste as good as I once thought it was!

This beer has all the elements you would expect from a pale lager. With that said, I think it is a better alternative to Coors, Miller, Bud etc. as it has some character. However, at the end of the day it is a pale lager... donít expect much.

smells clean, light straw. Has a nice color, amber. pours with little head. light and clean with the crispness of a well made lager. Taste is sour at the tip of the tongue, but it combines nicely with the carbonation. After this a strong apple flavor rounds out the taste and ends with a subtle sweet roasty malt flavor. A classic beer that is great for session drinking. Destroys all other macro lagers.
