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.

Bottled. Skunky, no head, clear, flavor impossible to discover, no finish; did I have a bad bottle? I mean, a lot of you top raters liked this sludge and I tend to trust you; but this was worse than Bud if you ask me. Iím getting suspicious of cult mainstream lagers/light ales, Iíll tell you!

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Undrinkable macro clone. Oh, and for what it's worth...purchased cold and seemingly fresh in a bomber-size brown bottle.

This is the most overrated beer in the US. It has a bitter strong aftertaste and is just near undrinkable. I detest having to drink this when it is the only beer around. Very popular at DC parties. Many times Iíve had to bring my own Miller Lite just to avoid drinking this crap.

Pours a dark orange with a large frothy white head. Strong aroma of hops and corn. Thin cornstarch taste on a watery body.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2007 stunk like aroma, nice appearance, flavor was too strong for me at the time, so I guess I should give it a second try

Definately not my favorite of Lagers (that goes to anheuser world lager).The aftertase seems to linger, the flavor is ok. Have had better, but also have had worse.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle at a wedding- I hate this beer, and donít understand why people like it so much. Super weird malty aroma and flavor. No discernable hop character. Begining to taste adjuncts in it, which is not strange considering its recently found popularity. Gross.

Stange stange stange. Skunky hops pulling in one direction and weird malt in the other. Extremely floral hops in taste and aroma, just didnt seem to make sense to me...

This is bullshit to drink after having Old Rasputin Stout. It is extremely thin and like water.
