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.

This beer is a bit overrated, it is ok, a better choice than the standard American Macro brews, but sill overrated.

My beer distributor in NY had me buy some of this for him when I went to Pa. I had to try it to see what was so special. The answer was nothing. First...I HATE CLEAR BOTTLES...they make for skunky beer if exposed to the light. Second, this beer was only a step above Budweiser...which isn’t good. No malt or hop flavor. Just your typical cheap beer.

pours a golden color with a white head. Taste like macrobrew lagers. Was disappointed with the depth

smells like a mildly more pungent bush light, pours a light copper with no head, light bittersweet taste, pretty standard lager, a little skunky aftertaste

Not real big on pale lagers. Smells pretty skunky and almost makes me not want to drink it. Much better than the other common lagers though and just as cheap.

Probably the best of the pale lagers out there, but that isn’t saying much.

Not a lot of depth with this beer....very light. I’m not sure that I would drink this again.

Over-rated beer, I just don’t like this beer. Tastes like crap out of the bottle. Can someone tell me why? No you can’t, cause you don’t know either. Some bad swill, but have had worse.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2003 Similar to budweiser, but more skunky. You have to drink these fast.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 A pretty good lager. Good on a hot day. Has a malty taste but not too heavy. Overall a good lager. Has a somewhat sweet aftertaste. Creamy head, but doesn't hold up well. It's overall a good lager, but seems to suffer from the mass quantity syndrome of huge batches.
