Can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with less than a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of some oddly dank malt. Taste is very lightly bitter. Grains with a bit of earthy hops. Full bodied with a surprisingly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a much longer than expected finish. Overall, not too shabby. Nothing to seek out but Ill drink what I have.

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malts, faint sweetness, straw, and a touch of corny sweetness. Not awful.

bulldogops (2362) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
355ml Can, 4.8%. Clear golden yellow pour with a decent white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet, appley, malts, and a fairly potent hoppiness. Mouthfeel is bubbly, pleasant. Taste is layered with malty sweetness and a substantial hoppiness, but doesnt finish dry or bitter... the sweetness lingers a little too long for my taste. Still unreal quality for a dollar beer.

Smells of lemongrass and biscuit. Taste like lemongrass. Like water on the palate. Nothing really to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

continuing the cheap beer trip. its been a heck of a trip so far. this time im going for Olympia, where they blame it on the water. I have bad memories about this one growing up. was really hard for me to pick this up and try it again. pour is actually pretty nice yellow color, nice head, lasting film of bubbles and more than expected lacing. Miller has a variety of these cheap beers. The can says pabst, so im wondering why they have PBR in the fridge but not this one. i dont like PBR much. first sip is pretty thin. actually almost pleasant taste to this one. little candy sweetness and well blended with whatever hops are in here. nice balance. i dont really mind this stuff, maybe just a tad too sweet, but overall an easy drinker and a price you cant really beat. Not mad at this one. about 8 more cans to go and ill see u at work!

Put a few of these down in Seattle when I was there on a trip. This could really use a bit more on the hops.
