UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 More malty than I expected to it to be, but not intense like an Oc-fest lager. Slight creamy, walnut flavor that kind of fights the hoppy nature of lager. The taste isn’t that out there at all, just different from any american brew you find on tap or at a convenience store. It is just flat tasty in a comforting, slightly refreshing way. Good for having three or one or two with a steak, chop or hamburger. mmmmmmm!
Not to mention that it IS the best American macro lager, period. noattention (20) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Listen, if you have to pick among "boring" beers, this is the one to go with. Even bad bars have it. It makes them a little less bad. Sregnar35 (1033) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 Pours amber with a fast head. Aroma is very shallow but sweet. Flavor is a bit sweet with a slight hopped finish. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 12, 2005
(12 oz. bottle) Pours a golden amber with a foamy white head. Aroma appealing. Good flavor, hint of smokiness at end. Refreshing, clean mouthfeel. Old dependable, this is what I order or buy if nothing more exotic avaialble. bsawatzky (153) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2005
by far the best lager that i have had. pours a dark, coppery, brown color with off white head. nice hop character with nice balance of tasty malts. a refreshing beer. excellent mass produced beer.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 lager isnt suppose to taste this good, I was not expecting much, such great aroma, herbal and hoppy. Taste is oh so good, those american hops and malt mixture, very hoppy, unbeleivable considering the style, I´m off to buy cases of this whenever I get paid .. wow! demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Much better, the malty goodness of a Boston lager. I like this better than their Boston Ale. Recently, I heard on a radio talkshow that people who order this beer at the bar are posers for some reason. One ,the person who said this is a moron. Two, Has he thought that people actually want to taste their beer rather than having alcoholic water like Carona, Budwieser, and Miller.

Golden brown colour, pours with a good off white head. Acidic malt nose, some flowery hop. Slightly creamy in mouth. Surprising for an american lager with a good mix of caramel malt and hops. Good balance and dry tangy finish 3.1/5. Rerate August 2012. had al ot of this from France. Good. KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Pretty yummy. Nice and malty with a good finish. Not my favorite, but a good beer for when better ones aren’t around. raedich (6) - USA - MAY 25, 2005 does not count
One of the better widely available lagers. Has respectable color and slight bitterness. Accetable both in bottle and on tap. My usual choice if less commercial options are not available.
