Bottled. Mostly wanted the bottlecap for my beer cap map. Looks, tastes, smells, and feels like a macro lager.

The first time I bought this beer was because the label caught my eye. Good packaging is a good sell by any standards. Well, needless to say we bought a 6 pack and went home. After finishing the 6 pack we proceeded to go back to the liquor store and bought three more. Im not the biggest fan of Lagers but this one was great. Not to mention its brewed in Michigan so thats a plus too.

355ml bottle. as "Badass American Lager". Aroma is a bit sulphury, light fruits, grain. Flavor is grainy, slight metallic, along the lines of an adjunct lager, maybe a bit sweeter, a small brewery has done well to make a decent pale lager this is far more easy to palate than PBR.

Bottled "Kid Rock" version. Pale yellow color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Adjuncts and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of corn, grainy malt and slight hops. The finish is mildly hoppy up front with a stale malty aftertaste. Nothing shocking here considering I bought it as a good, still substantially below average.

This is Kid Rock branded cheap beer and it tastes about as good as you would expect, unless youd expect such a thing to be good. It doesnt smell terrible, a little corny, but its sweet and oxidized tasting and sluggish and thick on the palate. I guess due to the sweetness and a weird butterscotch thing its got going on you could say this has a little more flavor than most cheap beer but when the flavor is bad, that doesnt really help things.

Smells of grass or hay, taste is surprisingly good for what we are talkin about here, light corn and sugar flavor very drinkable

I had one of these out of my friends dads garage when I was 19. I totally felt badass. I saw this beer on diners drive ins and dives. Guy Fieris death spikes hair do was pretty badass... This is a beer made in Michigan and endorsed by a rock star, thats pretty badass. This beer is badass in spirit in a way rarely seen in the craft beer world. That being said it is not good... It is bad. Buy it to feel badass... Not actually be badass...

I would say this beer is definitely more "American" than it is "Badass." I could see it being pretty Redneck too. It does feel nice drinking something local(as I live in Michigan), but thats all it really has going for it... If this were in any bars, Id easily go for it over Bud or Miller, but not over any craft lagers or other craft beers.
