Can. Light golden color. Smell of hops, copper, corn and malt. Taste of malt, hops and grains.

Good beer for the price. Krausening gives a nice mouthfeel. Consistency has been a problem with typically a third of beers in a 30pk having a metal flavor.

Bottle. Pours a a crystal golden in color, with a solid head. It has a well balanced character.

The best beer available in a can. Period. For an American pale lager, this beer has a lot of complexity. For the price, there is no better beer out there. Nice balance of malt and hops. Smooth finish that satisfies. Body is very good for an American lager. Color is pale yellow with a hint of orange. My search for a staple beer is over, and this is it. For the money, nothing beats it.

12oz can. Nothing special here. Plain, ol, basic, lager from the Heartland of the USA. I’m glad it was free.

This is the kind of beer your father or grandfather drank if you were 10 years old in 1965! Typical American lager. Fluffy head, medium yellow, nice steady carbonation. Not much "nose" to speak of, but what is there leans more towards the hop. Nice, smooth body with a light malt flavor, and a bit of a "yeasty" touch to it as well. The hops are certainly there, but blend in harmoniously rather than being too assertive or too weak. This beer is what it is. It’s not going to win any major awards at a World Beer Tasting Championship, but for having a few brewski’s with some peanuts or a hot dog at the game, this’ll fit rather nicely!

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Sampled on draught at the ABR 07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leave behind a white ring and no lacing. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of lemon citrus zest and even a hint of honey. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated, smooth with a bready malt and citrus hop flavor. Finish has a slight bitter taste at first and then crisp and clean cut. This definately reminds me of the original Heileman’s Old Style beer of the 1980s.

Great all around honest Lager. Price is right too. Think I found my new staple lager

On tap at the Oasis. Brewed according to the original Old Style recipe. I’ll drink it to help the cubs win , but not for the taste.
