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 good departure from the more wide spread American beers (Budweiser) but still nothing to write home about. I would still drink this any day over Bud, Miller or Coors.

Damn, this stuff is no good. Light and weak on all counts. Very similar to Bud, which is not mondo or radical on any way. Not my cup o’ tea. I shy away from beer that looks like pee.

Traditional = boring. Nice color. Aroma was 'eh', bordering on maybe kinda sorta starting to turn a little skunky. The flavor was..._empty_. that's the only way i can describe it. Not horrible, but then again there's nothing distinguishing about it whatsoever.

I would consider this in the same lines with any other macrobrew unfortunately. I could maybe have one after a day in the sun, but really would not go out of my way for one.

Clear yellow-amber. Soft, fluffy white head. Grainy cooked corn aroma . Very light, watery feel. Bland flavour w/ notes of plastic & cooked corn.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Dark amber color with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma overpowered by corn and wheat. Sweet corn flavors dominate.
