17Beer (764) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2019 12 oz bottle. Pours a red brown gold with a thin persistent off-white head. Big malty biscuity scents. Taste has a vegetal overtone off the broad but flat malt character. Some balancing bitter in the the short dry fiz finish. Above average carbonation. I don’t think it works very well.

pdog555 (500) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2019 Pours reddish amber with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is malty with slight hop note punctuating throughout. Palate of earthy notes. Relatively plain and sweet brew.

BrewSpot (42) - Zhengzhou, CHINA - DEC 31, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2018 Nah, a little better than Coors Banquet, slightly more roasted malty flavor, but still a very watered-down industrial beer. Even from tap, it is very mediocre

riggsfc61 (551) - Franklin, North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2018 Found from bottle. Pours an inviting red-near copper color. The appearance is the best part. The taste is below average for the style but still enjoyable in mid-Fall from time to time.

Kleg (857) - The Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2018
Clear amber color with an off-white head and good retention. Decent lacing. Light caramel nose. Clean and smooth caramel malt flavor with a light roasted finish. Fairly flat mouthfeel. Crushable.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2018 Its a good "drinking beer". Not required to get too picky about this one. Goes down easy and a nice choice when having more than a few. Would likely be rated higher if not owned by a big brother.

3.4
jhsnitz1 (550) - Central, South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2018
UPDATED: APR 9, 2018 Pours copper colored with a light tan head. A fuller bodied flavor of malt and balanced by mild hops.

One of the first reds I had and it’s ok, nothing exceptional. Pours a beautiful red though with a small head. Taste is slightly bitter and the aroma is, well, slightly Heineken skunk. However, it’s ok for an American mass brew and I’d definitely pick it over a number of other American brands. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A beer that a favorite of a good friend, so I have had several times over the years. Easy to drink, well-balanced and not too bland. Above average, not a swill beer. Are there better? Sure - sometimes it's the company you keep - cheers!
