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.

Thin pour with a quickly dissolving head. There is little aroma and the color is a bit darker than the average American lager. This is likely the best mass produced American lager as it quite smooth and has some malty character as opposed to beers like Budweiser and Miller. Taste would indicate less adjuncts used than those beers as well. A great session beer, especially for the price.

A pale lager that kind of actually resembles a beer! Decent body, pour, & aroma. It actually isnít watered down but certainly doesnít carry a flavor explosion. Itís passable & thatís more than I can say about the majority of this style!

24oz ghetto can. Clear bronze color with ivory head. Caramel, toast, sulfur, oil refinery aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Weak sweet caramel, toast, malty flavors with a lightly drying bitter finish___it is what it is.....

Hair6a11 (1348) - Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle: pour is honey gold with a modest white head into this glass. It retains fairly well. The nose is light adjunct , moving to caramel, honey nuttiness, with a mild grassy note. The flavor profile is bittering grassy hops, with lively carbonation presence, with mineral water, adjunct, caramel malts, with a faded finish. Itís well...what I expected

bluemooner (603) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a deep golden with a medium, fizzy, white head. Aroma is corn and malt. Flavor is better with hints of grain, caramel, and light hops. Light body with medium carbonation. Not bad for the style.

Bork (128) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Americaís oldest and most overrated beer. Caramel colored water with some sweet corn and a little bit of acidity. Look elsewhere.

Smelled, viewed, and consumed from a bottle (if I had asked for a glass in this establishment, I may have gotten my butt kicked). Standard lager fare, better malt flavor than most, refreshing.

tmongoose (1254) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2014
bottle poured a yellow color with white head. again its a pale lager and for the aroma is mild malt and little hop action. flavor is pretty much pale lager style..though not offensive just not all that flavorful. it did have some caramel notes in it. I am sure its brewed to style but just not my cup of tea. I mean beer.

Not terrible. Fairly typical for a large-brewer beer. Better than whatís available from the mega-brewers. On tap with dinner at Joeís American in Boston, MA.
