This is a beer that people in the US drink to make themselves think that they are drinking "premium" beer. If there is nothing else available, I will default to this, as it is available everywhere. Nice amber color, thin head with big bubbles that quickly disappears. Watery, but at least there is more "taste" than other Macro stuff. This beer tries to be "just different enough" so that it doesn't turn off the mass public.

Medium amber color with medium head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts. Smooth and doughy on the palate. Taste: mostly corn, grass, and malt. A step above typical adjunct lagers, but nothing special.

Rich, clear amber to copper color with a short-lived head of white foam. Traces of dried dark fruits and caramel malt overall. SOme dry grain and sweet floral and honey characters dancing around.

Bottle at Max’s Diner in Buffalo, after Mr. Gugino’s funeral :( Clean grainy aroma. A very nice red lager, sweet malts, grassy hops, not much complexity, but really drinkable.

Un bon ensemble pour une rousse mais un certain manque d’arôme, c’est dommage.

Much bread or bread crust. If that is what you are going for, then this is really good. Part of the reason I like this beer is that you cannot drink just one and you can still enjoy the taste of the second and third. Not very complex but it does not need to be.

onceblind (8925) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Clear rich Amber hue under a dissipating ivory cap. Golden brown bread toast on the aroma, with some lagery beery cracker tones. Semisweet flavor that has some light toast and light caramel/toffee, lager cracker, and a doughy bread toast finish. Like a bock but sweeter and amberish and much more blatantly lagery.

I found this beer at Hipermaxi in Cochabamba, Bolivia (22 Bs). Really nice standard Red Ale. Nice medium bitter taste with a good flavour overall. The aftertaste fell a little flat but not an issue. I would recommend this to anyone whose looking for a Red in Bolivia. I can’t speak to some of the more specific features of this beer as I don’t feel knowledgeable enough. However, I need this second paragraph to reach the 75 word minimum.
