Portland, Or - John’s Market Place - 16 oz can. Medium gold appearance, soft snow white head that leaves a trace of lacing. Aroma has a trace of corn, some popcorn and trace of fresh lake water. Flavor is sweet with a hint of honey, some grainy notes and a bit of mineral water. Good mouthfeel for an industrial lager. Pleasantly surprised.

Bit of a honey aroma to it. A bit of a syrupy texture.No malt flavour.Not half bad, or maybe just.

Picked this up in the cut-out bin. It brought back memories of when I was stationed in Fort Ord, CA in 1970 - 71. Let’s face it, it’s never going to stand up to the micros, but it was a refreshing stroll down memory lane.

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks to Ed. Very clean and clear. Notes of corn, sweet pilsner malt, fruity, and a slight tartness. This is a well made macro beer.

12 cans from Dans. I drank it out of the cans so ive no idea what it looks like. Smells of corn and sweet honey. Tastes of water, corn, light metallic garbage, pretty smooth. Very ok. Not good certainly but not horrific.

It’s the water? Well this sure tastes like water. If you want a cheap macro lager then this stuff is pretty decent.

Just picked up a 12pc of these bad boys. I guess they just changed the packaging a little bit. Now its orange/gold cans. I didn’t know this was apart of pabst, but it attracts the same crowd, why make a second? This is a crisp lager, almost malt liquor but has a peppery hoppynness to the flavor. I like "all natural" stuff.

12 oz. can- Pours clear old golden with a two finger white head that reduces but is still decent looking. Aroma is spicy pepper, grains, generic beer. The flavor is smooth, crystal malt, I wish there was a more hop bite, more crisp and clean. Body is pretty thin, carbonation is medium to moderately high. Overall not the worst pale lager I’ve had.

16 oz can - gotta love that orange can and vintage artwork. Pours a clear gold, darker than many American lagers. Smells like corn and sugar. Tastes overwhelmingly like sweet grains/corn, absolutely no hop presence detectable. After a while the sweetness kind of overpowers, but no offensive favors make this one of the better American adjunct lagers. --- Mike, Missoula MT
