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.

Call me a history fan, but coming from the oldest operating brewery in the U.S., this is a pretty ggod beer. I just wish I didn't have to drive to New York to get it!

Light in flavor, not much hops either. Dry finish. Better than bmc, but not by much.

Overall not a great lager. Taste light with little hops. Medium carbonation with a sub par after taste.

Bottle, Christmas day - Amber color. Taste was okay. Nice & smooth, wet, malty...not bad. Enjoyed it but was also thirsty as hell. Would drink it again but not by choice.

Bottle. Little aroma and blandish taste - some floral hops? Standard anywhere lager. Drinkable and forgettable.

Florida outdoor drink of choice -- clear brown with more aroma than typical light American lagers. Same goes with flavor, more malt presence but still light and easily drinking to be refreshing. Little to no hop presence as well to keep this a sessionable beer.

Served at almost all local restaurants and bars. I tried it once at Outback to change things up a bit. I was pleasantly surprised. It has a medium amber to light caramel color and is somewhat carbonated like most American beers. It went well with the meal and didn’t have any harsh or bad aftertaste. I prefer this to most other mainstream American beers like Bud, Miller, Coors, etc.

Poured from can into my trusty dbtd (downhill beer transport device), aka mug with a handle. Echoing others, has a color that is more amber/copper than the typical yellow lager. Tasty malt flavor with minimal hop flower to get in the way. As a fan of lagers this has a permanent place in my refrigerator in between cans of bud and bottles of german import.

Never had a Bud, but assume this is a standard, mass produced American beer. I thought it was disgusting and had bad egg-like smell and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
