I always seem to enjoy this one. Probably one of the best lagers that I can get in these parts. Taste has some bite. No too hoppy which is good. GPyott (67) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Full malt body which is complemented by the mild hop finish. One of the greatest of go-to beers when you’re undecided at the liquor store or bar. Raaha (67) - Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Had a robust hops, and malts aroma. Not a bad lager. Not my favorite beer though. Sticking with the ales, and pilsners. Ni209 (67) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2003 a nice beer but nothing extraordinary. this beer offers some interesting points to me because it is somewhere between pisswaters and , i guess you can call em, real beers. its like a good handjob; it's better than your hand, but it leaves you craving the real thing. i like it though. a step in the right direction.
rerate: this is much better on draft. much more stout and tastes more like a real beer. had to give her a few more points jus10cider82 (67) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2005

Sample Pack. Bottle. Nice amber color. A good thich head. An overall nice macro beer a lot better than most macros. cdeaton (66) - Madison, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Old reliable. Michelob and SA BL both call themselves "premium" lagers -- you tell me which one is lying. This actually looks like a beer -- amber color, small and diminishing head. It actually smells like a beer -- malty, hoppy, caramel. It actually tastes like a beer -- malts, caramel, a little creamy. It actually finishes like a beer -- hoppy and bitter. No, it’s not outstanding, but it’s the definition of solid. tsetlock (66) - Hartland Twp, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Not my first time tasting. Really good lager, and most people are willing to drink it. Pour is a nice deep amber, with a nice mild hoppiness in the nose. Good head and lacing on this beer. Taste is crisp. Initially is slightly hoppy/sweet , then finishes a little bitter, and well balanced with the malt. Very good. Garry_Evans (66) - HONG KONG - JUN 1, 2015
Holds up well against newer craft beers. Floral nose, good balance of maltiness, hops and sweetness. Long semi-bitter finish. Not particularly nuanced or special, but well-made, tasty and consistent.

This is one of my favorite beers - your basic decent malt for good clean drinking fun.
