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.

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.

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.
