I haven’t 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, "IIIII’ve 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 didn’t 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 - I’d sure like to try it - with some fish & potatoes...however I’ll pass on the murder as I’m ethically opposed to it.
12oz can from High Life Bar Milwaukee. Clear and headless I assume. Grain aroma. Easy drinking. None of that pesky flavor to get in the way. It is beer I guess.

For a pale lager and a buck a 16oz can beer it’s great. Drink um cold. Muskies michcam8 (565) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pours a light golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, honey, light malts, faint earthy hops. Taste is of lemon, grainy malt, honey dew, doughy bread and grass. Thin mouthful. Dry finish. Not bad. StoutBeerReviews (148) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2017
quite similar to PBR but just a slightly lighter body. Its lightly sweet and immensely smooth for a budget beer. Carlisle (745) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Can. Some grass aroma. Some grass and rice flavor. Standard adjunct lager.

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 I’ve 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 (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle in the bed just now. Bill Becker (1034) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 4, 2016
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 it’s 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 (456) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Tap at Bub’s 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.
