This is like training wheels to actually drinking good microbrewed beer.
AB’s watered-down but drinkable answer to Samuel Adams.
Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is grainy with a touch of hops. lawman834 (268) - Texas, USA - APR 28, 2010
Pours orange/amber. Thin off-white head that dwindles quickly. Lightly carbonated. Not much smell, but what’s there is malty with a hint of citrus. The taste isn’t impressive. Just like the smell, it is malty with a hint of citrus. Very little hops. A little light and tangy for a Vienna Lager. Thin and tangy. It feels more carbonated in the mouth than it appears in the glass. Very drinkable. Goes down easy and smooth.
Overall: Meh. Not wild, not hoppy, not worth the 8 bucks for 6. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, it’s just not good. Many better choices out there in the category for the price.

False AB micro. ugh. Filtered orange-tan. Buttery and thin, this is really bad. Minimal hop presence increases the tolerability of this one into the world of sub-par Ukranian malt delights. Horrid Diacetyl grossness. Bad shit man. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Bottle shared with jkwalking05. The look is clear, orangey colored, with a thin off white head. The smell is hops, weird graininess, and not much else. The taste is caramel, malts, and floral.

This poured a one finger, foamy white head on top of a clear, orange body. The aroma was bland, almost non-existent. The taste was probably of hops but nothing else. Mouthfeel was thin and watery to complement the lacklustre finish. Not one I’d have again. Radek Kliber (7365) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 28, 2009

Appearance: Light , clear amber look with medium light white top.3-
Nose: Sweet caramel malt , fruity sweet feel. Plenty of malts in aroma.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Straight malty character. Little hop noted. Fairly clean amber lager that was malt sided.
I liked this beer. Pours a golden color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet malts and grass. Maybe some hop bitterness there too. Flavor is smooth and grassy notes. Very smooth on the palate. Not worth the price for a 6er though. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Bottle. What smell is there is slightly fruity. Light amber in color with a small head that quickly disappears. The taste and body disappoint.
nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2009
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear gold with a two finger white head. The aroma was sweet, with grassy notes. The flavor was grainy. Not much of a hop presence.
