Quality Supreme: We brew our lager with six row malt, seedless hops, corn from Iowa, our lager strain (the same one the brewery has depended on since just after Prohibition), and the purest water from Lakes Ontario and Hemlock. Taste & Enjoy: This beer is brewed just right for drinkingcrisp and refreshing. Its got more flavor than other premium lagers, yet its one of the most drinkable beers in the world.

As these things go, its pretty good. As these things go. Lightly sweet corn, metallic, maybe a hint of grassy hops. Crisp and extremely drinkable.

A- Extremely light yellow and clear. Nice foamy lager head with decent lacing and retention. Nothing spectacular, but its a lager so I cant expect too much S - Sweet. Sweet. Sweet. The smell is dominated by a sweet corn aroma and a hint of malts. I cant pick out any other aromas. No offensive smells. One of the best smelling adjuncts Ive had. T - Ahhhhhhh. Why cant all the other macros taste like this? Crisp carbonation, sweet corn flavors, and the slightest hint of malts and hops. Theres not a ton of flavor, but the flavor that it does have is inbetween neutral and pleasant tasting. Very refreshing and drinkable. This is the difference between bottled water and swamp water. O - It doesnt get much better than this for the style. Its incredibly cheap, fairly local to me, and oh so non-offensive. The ultimate party beer, no need to do keg stands or funnels to force it down. Take your time neighbor, its damn tasty!

Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very grainy light sweetness like hints of apple tones. Soft body with a light corn sweetness. Nothing special.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
16oz Can: Nice crisp pale malts and a sweet lingering hop note thats actually detectable. Reminds me of PBR but with a little less class.

Capa (3141) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pale gold with a quickly vanishing white head. Light grain and sugar in the aroma. Same in flavor and very light on flavor but does have just a hint of hop finish. Carbed ligke a macro lager. Comes across as a high brow college drinking game lager. Still, better tham BMC and in the right circumstance (beer pong) it could be immensly drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (4541) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours golden yellow with a nice sized white head and leaves a ton of lacing. Not a lot of aroma. The taste has a sweet maltiness to it. Finishes clean and crisp. Im kind of shocked. I actually kind of like this one.

jkwood04 (5404) - Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2011
On tap. Pours light golden. Light malts, toasted. A very light beer. Worth trying because its better than a lot of other lagers.

Draft at the dutch...while I am glad that this American classic lager has been saved from extinction, you can learn all you need to know about this beer by watching Captain Quint in the movie Jaws and the revelry it creates after you bite the can open with your teeth....Join in if you are so inclined. "Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain. For weve received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so never more shall we see you again." Heres to swimmin with bow-legged women." "Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity." For a session/lawnmower beer it sure aint bad.
