GrooveDaddy (25) - Bham, Alabama, USA - FEB 6, 2008
I havent as yet had the privledge of sampling this superb lager, but I have seen it savored in a movie at a dinner scene, which made it look pretty decent. The film is Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and the scene which I recall is when Henry, his roomate and fellow scumbag Otis, and Otis (actually very nice) sister are finishing up a supurb fish dinner. The scene starts with some song by an unknown band which goes, "IIIIIve got my FINGERS ON IT"..then the music is subdued, and we see the camera pan out, revealing the broiled fish, with what looks like some potatoes and some sort of vegetable (broccoli?). Henry is rolling a cigarette (possibly pot, as Otis sometimes sells it) and they are all sipping on Old Styles. After Henry introduces Otis to the wonderful world of murder (killing a couple of ladies of the night, and dumping their bodies in a dumpster), he first comforts Otis with some fries; then when they get home, he offers Otis more comforting words ("You didnt have no choice here, either."), he asks Otis if he wants a beer; Otis replies in the affirmative, then Henry quickly returns with a can of Old Style - Henry first takes a sip himself before he hands it over, explaining "There was only one left". It seems that not even a notorious serial killer can resist this one - Id sure like to try it - with some fish & potatoes...however Ill pass on the murder as Im ethically opposed to it.

This one is a tick above the other old school regional favorite brews bought out and produced by a conglomerate but I could be influenced by the fact Ive only tried it a few times.

24 oz can pours golden with a white head. This is just a basic beer but I have always wanted to try it. Basic lawnmower brew.

CanIHave4Beers (4136) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle in the bed just now.
Pours pale gold with a small but well retained head that leaves a little lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little herbal with some sweet maltiness and a bit of corn.

The flavor is lightly sweet a touch bitter, a little bit corny, clean... and delicious.

Look, I know what the technical strengths & weaknesses of this beer are, and for all that its still one of my favorite beers...

Can, best by January 2nd 2017. Typical straw yellow colour? Minimal head of foam, short lasting Corny grainy smell Same for the taste but hells, I appreciate it for its simplicity and quaffability.

BrewHaMeister (442) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Tap at Bubs poured clear yellow with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aromas of corn, light malt, and hints of doll house furniture. Flavor is slightly sweet. A little strange at first but refreshing.

cattaneopapa (350) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
500ml can from Thomas. Pours a clear straw colour with a minimal head. Bready aroma with some metallic notes. Taste matches the aroma with well balanced finish. Moderate carbonation. Nothing spectacular.

PhatCatt (76) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Poured into tumbler, typical pale lager colour. Flavorful, has a fairly mild breadiness in the malts (white/wheat bread). Recommended for those who like Miller Lite.

ordybill (1518) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grain and corn. The taste is surprisingly good, made up of malt and grains. Overall, an excellent lager.

UDBeernut (2803) - Earth & Jacksonville (weekends), Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2016
This was my reward to my self for clearing customs changing terminals and clearing TSA at ORD in what must be a world record of 20 minutes. This one was in the admirals club between concourse h/k in ORD. Right out of the bottle just to stay proper to style. Sloppy wet grains, some sweetness. Rice, grass, metal after taste. Light to medium body.
